Code name

All WComp major releases as a code name of one of the Transformers characters. This choice is for two reasons:

  • One of the main developer of WComp is a fan of Transformers (we offered him a small transformer figurine for his PhD defense ;)
  • The second reason is because WComp allows to dynamically transform a running program based on components assembly to create a new one depending on the excution environment.

A good illustration of this is the following video. This is a video clip from Hasbro: Kre-o, Create it
