Melvenn tests Cawen as a web language

A new playground for Cawen

With the coding of a first web page, Melvenn demonstrates that it is possible to develop a website in Cawen just as easily and clearly than with PHP, python or Java…The main difference is that the resulting web application is written in C and is incredibly more efficient.

Please click here to test our interactive model and have a look at some impressive figures.

Melvenn assesses Cawen’s energetic efficiency

Can we talk about “green” language ?

Melvenn has measured the energy consumption associated to the execution of the different variants of Robert Hundt’s benchmark.

The advantage taken on C++ is striking.

The results are available on our site and in this article.

We are inviting all those who would like to participate in the building of a more responsible I.T. industry to visit and contribute to sites like Green Code Lab.

Melvenn participates in the openMalaria project

When optimization really matters

Melvenn offers a 20% speed gain to the openMalaria project

openMalaria is an open source C++ program for simulating malaria epidemiology and the impacts on that epidemiology of interventions against malaria.
It is based on microsimulations of Plasmodium falciparum malaria in humans, originally developed for simulating malaria vaccines and described here.

openMalaria binary is run by more than 65000 users, members of a BOINC community that you can join here.

We downloaded the openMalaria C++ source code and, applying a few local changes, we reached a 20 % speed gain on our servers.

What if openMalaria had been coded in Cawen ?

Our optimization proposals have been transmitted to the openMalaria maintainers.
