Nice! I poked around a little in the repo and found no mention of Swift?

Sounds cool!

I'm unfortunately not coming to Paris, but we can discuss this over
email. The ZeroVM mailinglist would be fine if it's too off-topic for
this list.

In the ZeroVM project, we're mostly (only really) interested in an
interface for Swift since we can embed the ZeroVM sandbox in Swift.

This gives you a Swift cluster where you can execute map-reduce jobs
(from untrusted clients because of the ZeroVM sandbox) directly on the
data. We like say that you can send the code to the data instead of
doing it the other way around.

So that is why I'm focusing on Swift now and will later add support for
starting these ZeroVM jobs to the browser.
