Fermyon Technologies has introduced Spin 1.0, a new major release of the world’s first serverless function framework based on WebAssembly.

With support for SQL databases, NoSQL key/value storage, OCI registry support, and a variety of popular languages, Spin 1.0 meets the needs of today’s full-stack developer. Spin’s applications are built with serverless APIs, such as AWS Lambda and Azure Functions, for example. They’re also easy to build. Microsoft has integrated Fermyon Spin into its cloud offerings, and other software vendors are in the process of integrating it into their offerings.

“Cloud native development has been slow and tedious for developers. Fermyon wants to reverse that trend. We want to make serverless apps fast. Fast to develop, fast to deploy and fast to run”,

said Matt Butcher, co-founder and CEO of Fermyon.

“With Spin, a developer can go from blinking cursor to deployed application in 66 seconds. The open source ecosystem gathering around Spin is propelled forward by WebAssembly, the underlying technology. Spin 1.0 is the culmination of a year’s development, and we could not have reached this milestone without the enthusiasm, contributions and support of this rapidly expanding community”,

he continued.

On top of its already voluminous feature set, new features in Spin 1.0 include:

– Key-value store, PostgreSQL and Redis integration enabling stateful applications

– Support for the OCI Registry standard enabling standard packaging alongside Docker images

– Support for today’s most popular programming languages including Javascript/Typescript, Python, Rust, Go, Java and .NET

– Substantial command stability improvements for a better developer experience

– Extensibility including plug-ins and trigger(s) for expanded application scope

– End-to-end testing enabling confidence in code completion and stability
