Seems like that sync might be able to complement datomics write-side constraints :thinking_face:

I may try to port tau.alpha to their thing to see if I can get parallel workloads on the cloud edge, and see how many parallel isolates they allow

john00:12:10

People might actually pay for that 😁

john00:12:31

cough someone should pay me to do that cough

john01:12:29

I'm kidding, this is not a solicitation 🙂

john01:12:38

probably would be a cool product though

john00:12:41

Quick elevator pitch eh? But I'll probably play with it sometime either way

Anyone have a good resource on writing a production level scheme? my main concern is not speed, but error reporting + debugging tools + ease of use

andy.fingerhut03:12:56

Do you consider that there are no existing production level Scheme implementations? Or you want to take on a seriously big hobby project of creating a new production level language implementation?

pablore21:12:49

Racket and Chicken are production ready scheme implementations. Fun fact: Racket Scheme is implemented in Chez Scheme. A scheme inside scheme!

There's a book called lisp in small pieces that progressively builds up lisps with advanced features

todo03:12:26

@andy.fingerhut: I have worked through a number of tutorials on writing "half a page" schemes. I'm now curious about all the work people do to make it practically useable.

andy.fingerhut03:12:22

I think Dr Scheme has an open source implementation, and I am not sure, but would guess that some of the professors and grad students working on it have written various papers on it.

todo03:12:44

This is Racket / PLT group @ Indiana ?

andy.fingerhut03:12:05

Sorry, yes, had a senior moment there forgetting it has been called Racket for several years now.

todo04:12:39

Actually, reading the smalltalk design + impl docs may be helpful. what they have built, - smalltalk + scheme, is what I want.

A Z80 is kind of lame. I guess I don’t get the point of this.

pablore22:12:33

I’d pay for a more closely related micro-lisp-machine

Christian Pekeler00:12:05

@U7V9HE682 how much? Serious question.

polymeris15:12:39

What do you mean by "more closely related"?

pablore20:12:14

a chipboard that resembles the original symbolics architecture

@UDQE4G9B2 depends of the quality and power.

pablore20:12:06

But ~$50 ?
