Writer Coleen Frye recently spoke with Grindwork Corp.’s Brian Jones. When he co-founded Grindwork, the thought was “let’s make a declarative language that works with rules and facts and eliminates everything else.” The result was the Grindwork Thinking Server (GTS), which converts facts and rules into actions. “The Thinking Server is not a rules engine per se; it’s a declarative server. We have rules, not event handlers; we let state generate behavior.” According to Grindwork, systems using GTS require substantially less hand-coding for the server operations.
