Ahoy! Today we launched Pulumi, an open source cloud development platform, providing the cloud’s first true programming model using real programming languages. We believe that containers, serverless, and hosted cloud services change everything about how we design and build software and applications. All developers these days are cloud developers. We saw a big gap in the way people want to create this software, and how they are required to do it today with configuration YAML and templating languages, and sought to close that gap.
