Microsoft open-sources P language for IoT

Microsoft’s P language, for asynchronous event-driven programming and the IoT (internet of things), has been open-sourced. Geared for embedded systems, device drivers, and distributed services, P is a domain-specific language the compiles to and interoperates with C, which itself has been commonly leveraged in embedded systems and the IoT. “The goal of P is to provide language primitives to succinctly and precisely capture protocols that are inherent to communication among components,” said Ethan Jackson and Shaz Qadeer of Microsoft, in a tutorial on the language.”
