Céu is a Esterel-based synchronous language:
It appeared in LtU in the past in an announcement of the "SPLASH: Future of Programming Workshop" program.
In this new public version, we are trying to surpass the academic fences with a more polished work (docs, build, etc).
Structured programming avoids deep nesting of callbacks letting programmers code in direct/sequential/imperative style. In addition, when a line of execution is aborted, all allocated resources are safely released.
The synchronous model leads to deterministic execution and simpler reasoning, since it does not demand explicit synchronization from the programmer (e.g., locks and queues). It is also lightweight to fit constrained embedded systems.
We promote SSRP as a complement to classical structured/imperative programming like FRP is now to functional programming.
