    Our vision is driven by rapid progress in hardware development, such as miniaturizing computing devices. On the software side, however, application development for such a setting is challenging for several reasons. One is the heterogeneity of devices and networking technologies, which vastly increases application development complexity. Other reasons include frequent reconfigurations and communica...
