Dark is a holistic programming language, structured editor, and infrastructure, for building backend web services. It’s for frontend, backend, and mobile engineers. Their goal is to make coding 100x easier, which we believe will allow a billion people to build software. This is a huge challenge, that requires a significant rethink of how we write software. The defining principle behind Dark is that we want to remove all accidental complexity from coding. Building applications today is incredibly complex, and a great deal of that complexity is accidental. Dark abstracts away individual machines and low-level distributed systems code to: generate and run scalable infrastructure for you, remove the deployment step entirely, and use APIs as easily as functions. Dark is co-founded by Paul Biggar (CircleCI) and Ellen Chisa (Lola, Kickstarter).
