  1. The Next-Generation Cloud CMDB: Ludwig Code

    A CMDB for APIs is a crucial aspect of Fugue, and one area where running your operations with Fugue offers a lot of value to you. Fugue's CMDB is an effect of our declarative model for configuration, built around our typesafe, compiled Ludwig language. Once it is run as a process in Fugue, that declaration is made real and immutable with machine precision.

  2. Why We Built Ludwig — a DSL for the Cloud of Today and the Future

    Fugue uses a new domain-specific language, Ludwig, to describe infrastructure configuration. Before we started building, we looked around for what we wanted, but didn't find it all in one place. We want typical things you do in cloud to be easy, and not feel like programming. We want users to get great error messages, fast. We want a program that compiles to almost always work in the cloud. We want sophisticated work to be possible, but safe, predictable, and shareable.

  3. Why We're Porting To Python 3

    We knew Python was the right choice, but we had lingering doubts about our decision to continue avoiding Python 3. After taking a closer look, we found that things had changed drastically since the last time we'd seriously considered this question, and the scale was no longer decidedly tipped against Python 3.

  4. #Pipeday: Celebrating 49 Years of |

    This Friday marks the 49th birthday of the ideas behind one of the most powerful characters in the command shell (both *nix and Windows): the pipe. For those who don't know, the pipe is this character: | It's Shift-Backslash on a US keyboard, and it is used to send the output of one process to the input of another.
