Hi, I’m a senior medstudent interested in programming and the concurrency/fault-tolerance of the Beam vm. I have two questions:
Is Elixir planning on having something like pandas for data analysis, or is the focus mainly on ML?
Having watched the Lambda days talk of J Valim. Wanted to know if the pluggable compiler feature could be used for purposes outside Nx, such as utilizing LLVM for webassembly or performance purposes?
My understanding is quite limited atm and I only learn in my free time (rotating through pediatric surgery atm).
I feel that ML, though seemingly interesting, is not something i see myself spending time with anytime soon, but general data analysis seems useful and feel it might assist me in some ideas i might have in future. With respect to pluggable compilers, the computational performance with XLA compiler made me feel that we could possibly use it with other compilers for performance (Only when needed) outside numerical computation?
I do wish to contribute to/develope some library of my own in time. Apologies forbthe lengthy message
As for why Elixir: Concurrency/fault-tolerance/very friendly community/hardworking-passionate J Valim/not looking for employment/feel its ideal for a indie dev or startup that wants to scale-up using in-house hosting.
