P is a programming language for asynchronous event-driven programming and the IoT that was developed by Microsoft and University of California, Berkeley.[1]

P enables programmers to specify systems consisting of a collection of state machines that communicate asynchronously in terms of events.[2] P programs can run and be analyzed on any platform supported by .NET. Additionally, P programs can generate C# and C code.

P is open source, licensed under MIT License, and available on GitHub.[3]
