Lasp: a language for distributed, coordination-free programming

  title={Lasp: a language for distributed, coordination-free programming},
  author={Christopher Meiklejohn and Peter Van Roy},
We propose Lasp, a new programming model designed to simplify large-scale distributed programming. Lasp combines ideas from deterministic dataflow programming together with conflict-free replicated data types (CRDTs). This provides support for computations where not all participants are online together at a given moment. The initial design presented here provides powerful primitives for composing CRDTs, which lets us write long-lived fault-tolerant distributed applications with nonmonotonic… CONTINUE READING
