Stanislaus is a programming language designed for simplifying parallelization and distribution of computation in on large-and-medium scale clusters. It uses dataflow programming, where the state of the program isn't stored in variables, but instead is explicitly represented by operations on immutable data streams that can be executed in parallel. Stanislaus programs are written as directed acyclic graphs (DAGs), which makes it easier to express many common computations across big data scenarios.
