We are Tweag I/O

Manifest
for composable software

Modular, simple, composable. It's the only way we have found to build fast, correct and maintainable software. Modular means that we build software as a collection of independently useful and reusable parts. We ruthlessly refactor each part to keep it focused on a single purpose, making it simple. We deliver software fast by thinking about composability left right and centre, connecting parts together from whichever direction, like train wagons. Composability lets us express arbitrarily complex behaviours with less code.

Functional, typed, immutable. These are the key technologies for composable software. We build parts as functions, because functions compose where objects do not. We use types to describe functions, because one type is worth a thousand out-of-date comments. We keep data immutable, because immutability lets us focus on the business logic holistically without getting bogged down by hundreds of corner cases.
