BOOM -- Berkeley Orders of Magnitude -- Declarative Languages And Systems

by ghis (via)
Many say that "The Cloud" will be the next game-changing computing platform. The race is on to define and capture it. Historically, new platforms take off when independent developers start to make innovative use of their unique features. In the case of Cloud Computing, that means exploiting distributed systems in a datacenter. Up to now there's been no widely-used programming model that lets developers easily coordinate the distributed power of a datacenter. Enter BOOM, an effort to explore implementing Cloud software using disorderly, data-centric languages. BOOM stands for the Berkeley Orders Of Magnitude project, because we seek to enable people to build systems that are OOM bigger than are building today, with OOM less effort than traditional programming methodologies.

Fundamental research is not necessarily impractical nor is it abstract and far-off. Powerful examples of fundamental research that were practical and had immediate benefits were the inventions of the networked personal computer, dynamic-object oriented programming, the graphical user-interface and the Internet. These have generated many trillions of dollars of GWP, changed the lives of several billion people and created many new businesses that have been built on the fundamental inventions.
