Wing Cloud, an Israeli startup that offers the open-source Wing Programming Language (Winglang), came out of stealth with $20 million in seed funding led by Battery Ventures, Grove Ventures, and StageOne Ventures; with participation from Secret Chord Ventures, Cerca Partners, and Operator Partners.

An open-source programming language is a programming language whose source code is freely available for anyone to use, modify, and redistribute. This means that anyone can contribute to the development of the language, and that the language can be used for any purpose, commercial or not. Some examples include JavaScript and C++.

Open-source programming languages are popular because they offer transparency -the source code for open-source languages is available for anyone to inspect, which can help to ensure that the language is secure and well-designed. But most importantly, they are typically free to use and distribute, which can save businesses money.

Wing Cloud was founded in 2022 by CEO Elad Ben-Israel, creator of myriad open-source projects in the cloud infrastructure space such as the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK), CDK for Kubernetes (CDK8s), JSII, and Projen; as well as COO Shai Ber. The company says that it aims to tame cloud complexity with software solutions that empower developers and DevOps teams to harness the power of the cloud together.

Winglang is an open source programming language designed for building distributed systems that leverage cloud infrastructure as first-class citizens. The Winglang compiler produces a ready-to-deploy package that includes both infrastructure-as-code definitions for Terraform, CloudFormation, or other cloud provisioning engines; as well as Node.js code designed to run on computer platforms such as AWS Lambda, Kubernetes, or edge platforms.

“We’re abstracting away a lot of the gritty details of building applications on top of cloud infrastructure,” said Elad Ben-Israel, CEO and Co-Founder of Wing Cloud. “The cloud has evolved into an incredibly powerful computing platform, but customers still find themselves having to deal with burdensome tasks across security, networking, deployment and operations to build and manage even the simplest systems.”
