The Project CORA Vision Paper

Project CORA (Create Once Reach All) is the proposal to enable a single piece of content to run on many client devices from a single workflow and build process. It can take advantage of the capabilities of each client device, and support a client, cloud, and hybrid client-cloud workload balanced compute ecosystem.

The session will begin with an analysis of where the ecosystem is today along with a summary of some of its core challenges. This will be followed by a proposal for Project CORA along with a first-attempt birds eye view of a potential framework. TIFCA welcomes the industry to contribute to Project CORA through participation, framework engineering, and bold new ideas.
