TinyGo is "a Go compiler for small places". It is a language designed specifically to work on embedded systems and WebAssembly. If you squint hard enough, you can almost imagine that WebAssembly is a form of embedded system (it's embedded in a host runtime).

One of the core tenets of wasmCloud has always been that we embrace the specification without doing anything proprietary. In other words, anyone who knows the "wasmCloud ABI" can create actors in any language that compiles to freestanding WebAssembly. While this is technically true, it's certainly a lot easier when we have an easy SDK and code generation support for a language. Using our SDKs gives you a more friendly library while helping insulate your code from changes to the underlying WebAssembly spec.

The newest language in our arsenal is TinyGo.

We spend a lot of time talking about how the wasmCloud capability provider system, from its abstract contracts to the ability to hot-swap providers, is a way to separate non-functional requirements from business logic code. While all of that is true, it's also a fairly enterprisey way to describe it. In this blog post, I'll describe them another way using terms from functional programming.

With the general availability of GitHub Packages container registry, or GHCR for short, an easily accessible Docker registry made its way into the same platform many developers use for version control today. This was great news for containers and simplifying infrastructure, just like Actions greatly simplified workflows on GitHub.

But wait, there's more!
