    Author of the linked post here. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have

    1. 1

      I am an Erlang developer and I would like to play with Lasp. What do you recommend I check or do to learn more about it or to understand its full potential?

      1. 1

        Right now we’ve been very focused in seeing how far we can push the runtime, so unfortunately the documentation is pretty lacking. It’s something I want to fix :)

        As for learning, there are a couple of papers that maybe can help. This one gives an overview of the language, while this other one explains how the dataflow runtime is implemented.

        any expectation on the code speedup/space improvement?

        By the way, impressive work!

          Is this a framework for erlang?

          1. 1

            You can probably think of Lasp as an experiment in figuring out ways to make it easier to build distributed systems. It’s implemented as an Erlang library but, as @adsouza said, it isn’t explicitly tied to the Erlang VM.

              The prototype is implemented as a an Erlang library but the model itself isn’t tied to any one language.
