Introduction

Fluence is an open protocol and a framework for internet or private cloud applications. Fluence provides a peer-to-peer development stack so that you can create applications free of proprietary cloud platforms, centralized APIs, and untrustworthy third-parties. The Fluence stack is open source and is maintained and governed by a community of developers.

At the core of Fluence is the open-source language Aqua that allows for the programming of peer-to-peer scenarios separately from the computations on peers. Applications are turned into hostless workflows over distributed function calls, which enables various levels of decentralization: from handling by a limited set of servers to complete peer-to-peer architecture by connecting user devices directly.

This book is dedicated to all things Aqua and currently in its alpha version and we expect to expand both Aqua's breadth and depth coverage over the coming weeks.
