Ur/Web wants to make web programming easier and more secure.

  • In designing a web site, a programmer often needs to juggle multiple services, languages and technologies.
  • For Example:
    • You've got CSS that control page style
    • XML
    • SQL or MySQL database queries
    • JavaScript + Java
    • Silverlight
    • A service for ad service
    • Widgets
  • It's easy to get lost in all the different tech confused -- OR WORSE CASE... you leave a few things a little more open than they should, because you're not sure how the different elements will interact with one another. Now a new programming language called Ur/Web promises to make the process easier.
  • It uses a STRONGLY TYPED language and "Variable Scoping" to make sure data stays where it's supposed to be.
  • It also allows the developer to design in a single interface and Ur/Web will bring in the disparate pieces as needed.
