It is undeniable that most developers today are building distributed applications. However, most of these applications are developed by composing existing systems together through unspecified APIs exposed to the application developer.

Given this, we propose a research direction where higher-level languages with well defined semantics target underlying systems infrastructure as a middle-ground.
