Version 0.14.0 of the SICMUtils computer algebra system for Clojure(script) is out: https://github.com/sicmutils/sicmutils SICMUtils is a scientific computing system that offers: • Symbolic expression algebra and powerful simplification routines • forward-mode automatic differentiation • ODE initial value solvers • many different definite integral methods • a full, cross-compatible numeric tower (rational numbers, complex numbers, BigInt support) for Clojure and Clojurescript Interactive REPL use and Jupyter support works; the next step is to integrate SICMUtils into #nextjournal, and build integrations that let SICMUtils act as a physics engine for three.js and other libraries like this. Come say hi in #sicmutils 👋 ,and give the full reference manual a skim for an overview of the library’s features: https://cljdoc.org/d/sicmutils/sicmutils/0.14.0/doc/reference-manual

Should the links that say “sponsoring” be pointing to https://github.com/orgs/cognitect/sponsoring ? Looks like the sponsorships started today. So I’m guessing that is the case?

alexmiller21:12:27

that page doesn't show anything to people outside the org as far as we can tell (we have a question in to github about that)

alexmiller21:12:01

looks great for me though. wish you could see it! :)

alexmiller21:12:38

maybe there is some checkbox somewhere to check, but we haven't found it

seancorfield21:12:07

@U5K8NTHEZ What does that page show for you?

alexmiller21:12:56

thanks! was just discussing w/ gh and seems like it's logged in vs logged out, to be fixed

Ben Sless21:12:41

That's amazing

didibus21:12:19

This is great, and if all these sponsors are truly 6 figures, I'm quite happy about it and what it means for the future of the Clojure tooling and ecosystem.

alexmiller21:12:25

6 figures is the total, not per person :)

alexmiller21:12:41

but the idea is that if every company kicked in a small percent of revenue, these people could actually make a living making tools

Ben Sless21:12:58

6 figures is nothing to sneeze at. It can be 1e6, can be 5e6, too.

didibus21:12:37

Ah I see, well I still totally appreciate the move, and it's an amazing gesture of support.

alexmiller21:12:39

Most developers are being supported at $500+/mo initially

Do you accept nominations?

alexmiller21:12:57

Sponsorship is not something to apply for. We make decisions on sponsorship based upon many factors.

If you want to sponsor someone, I encourage you to do so! :)

pez23:12:21

This is such a great move. The stance is super clear. It will be heard. Personally, I have been dancing and singing and hugging my family members for hours now. Still am as happy as when I realized Calva was selected for this. Thank you, thank you, thank you! ❤️

Are there any plans to sponsor people that are still on the GitHub's waitlist (because their country is still not eligible)?

alexmiller02:12:02

we are evaluating some alternatives for cases like that

mauricio.szabo17:12:46

BTW, just saw that you're also funding via Patreon. That's great! I hope other companies follow the example 👍

quoll00:12:36

I want to say thank you to NuBank/Cognitect. I feel immensely privileged for this. ❤️
