The latest Wolfram technology stack makes it possible for you to develop and deploy useful applications in minutes.

In the Wolfram Cloud or on local hardware, the new Wolfram Language is the ultimate hackathon power tool. With its revolutionary approach of building as much as possible into the language—and automating programming and deployment—the Wolfram Language lets you take big ideas and turn them into reality in the space of a hackathon.
