Microsoft with its Win32 Metadata project is looking to make Windows APIs more accessible to more languages, by producing metadata for the APIs. Languages such as Rust, C#, and C++ are early beneficiaries of this project.The Win32 Metadata project, with repos on GitHub, aims to provide a complete description of the WinAPI, allowing it to be projected to any language in an automated way, thus improving correctness and minimizing maintenance overload. The output of the project is an ECMA 335-compliant Windows metadata file published to Nuget.org. Accurately describing all of the Windows APIs will take time, however, so plans also call for developing tools to assist with the project.To read this article in full, please click here

Much of the value in the public cloud, especially the hyperscale providers like Azure, is economic. You’re taking advantage of their ability to buy power, network, and hardware at a scale that would have been unimaginable a few years ago.  Another benefit of the hyperscale clouds is their operational expertise and their infrastructure design. They can spin up a new server instance in seconds, providing compute on demand. And with container technologies, they’re able to quickly switch in new isolated environments and scale them up as necessary.[ Also on InfoWorld: The best programming language to learn now ] That’s where serverless technologies come in, building on those skills and the processes to rapidly launch small, stateless processes as necessary. Like much cloud-native development, these serverless processes are event driven, responding to messages, processing their contents, and passing the results on to the next element of a distributed application. As they’re launched on demand, they can scale rapidly, and as they’re billed per second of CPU time, they’re also relatively cheap when compared to a full-time virtual infrastructure.To read this article in full, please click here
