The Web-interoperable Runtimes Community Group (or “WinterCG”) is working with organizations including NearForm and Vercel to ensure that developers’ voices were heard in the creation of a new community group working within existing standards bodies. The API Standards allow developers to:
- Use the best tool or framework for the job: It will be easier to leverage tools and integrations from the community across runtimes, allowing developers to use the best tool for the job.
- Have a uniform approach to writing server side code: By removing platform specific nuances and the need to learn different platforms and focusing on functionality it’s easier for developers to ship better code.
- Move applications as technology needs change: As application needs evolve and change over time there is no need for massive re-writes and adding or switching vendors.
