    Hard same. @DanielBMarkham I still do a lot of Perl (modern Perl), I’m a big fan of Erlang, Elixir and BEAM, so I finally rolled my own, called Zing, https://github.com/iamalnewkirk/zing#features. By default it uses Redis for atomicity but the store is abstracted so you could really use anything that supports atomic operations.

      This is good. Thanks.

      My work in functional and pure functional programming has led me also to a BEAM or a BEAM-like environment. Probably not BEAM itself, but something very similar. I believe that programming is much more than a language and a spec, it’s an interactive experience. I enjoy hearing stories of the effect different paradigms have on different coders.

        If not BEAM, why not? What else are you considering?

          Rolling my own, most likely. I’m like that.

          I have an idea for a supercompiler. I’ve started on it conceptually and I know at a high level most everything I want. Many of the Erlang features would be a baseline. It would be completely language-independent, but right now I’m leaning towards an initial .NET deployment (for various reasons I won’t go into here)

          I imagine this idea will pester me for several years until I finally kick out a POC. Once I’ve proven to myself that it all works in code, I tend to lose interest and move on to something else. There are the idea guys and there are the detail guys. It makes your life happier once you figure out which camp you’re mostly in.

            What do you mean by supercompiler? What are your thoughts on Orleans since you are considering .NET?
