Holochain is an open source initiative to create a cloud infrastructure.
Some time ago I pre-ordered a small computer that will be delivered when the system is ready.
I ordered the product here:
Holo is claiming that they will ship the computers when their software is tested enough to create a stable communications between the devices. They claim to have sold 4000 of these small servers (raspberry pies with a nix-os).
I just wrote a post in the Holochain developer forum with the suggestion that they use Julia for testing:
If this can be done Julia can be part of the initial software package that is shipped together with the 4000 so called Holoports…
Would that not be a great way to expand the Julia community?
Thanks for clarifying. I asked this because you linked a web store for a product which (at the moment) is not related to Julia in any way, if I understand correctly.
I don’t know if there is a community consensus on how to describe Julia briefly — it usually depends on the audience. Personally, I would not define Julia comparing to Matlab (as it draws from a lot of languages), and would instead select some relevant pieces from the “Julia in a Nutshell”" blurbs, or the “why we created Julia” announcement.
