hope we have the distributed computing perl6
Message ID:
I use perl5 everyday for data statistics.
The scripts are running on a single server for the computing tasks.
I also use R, which has the similar usage.
When we face very large data, we change to Apache Spark for distributed
Spark's interface languages (python, scala, even ruby) are not flexible,
but their computing capability is amazing, due to the whole cluster
contributing the computing powers.
Yes I know perl5 is somewhat old, but in perl6 why won't we make that a
distributed computing framework like Spark? Then it will help a lot to the
data programmer who already knows perl.
I expect a lot from this project.
