You may have initially heard of Ballerina on episode #313 of The Changelog. Well, the “first cloud native programming language” has finally reached its milestone 1.0 release! After more than 3 years of hard work by an incredible team, I am thrilled to announce the general availability of Ballerina 1.0! Congrats to Paul and the team for powering through and shipping something they can be proud of! Check the announcement post for all the details of what “1.0” means for Ballerina.
