Stream: zulip

Topic: new streams wg-{simd,cuda,allocators}

gnzlbg (Nov 07 2018 at 08:56, on Zulip):

Could we add streams for those working on allocators, simd, and cuda ? e.g. wg-allocators, wg-simd, wg-cuda ? There is currently no place for us to meet, and I'd like to post these to the users and internals forums to try to get some more people involved

any idea who to ping about this? @nikomatsakis ?

DPC (Nov 10 2018 at 21:21, on Zulip):

yes ping niko

@nikomatsakis hold on on creating a channel, we are currently discussing which channel to use:

gnzlbg (Nov 12 2018 at 12:40, on Zulip):

So the wg-cuda would like to have a stream here on zulip. @nikomatsakis it would be great if someone could set this up.

gnzlbg (Nov 12 2018 at 16:58, on Zulip):

so no new working groups are being created until after the edition and until after some organizational issues with respect to working groups are resolved, so it is probably not possible for us to have a stream here

@gnzlbg this is the first I had heard of a rust cuda working group :) interesting. I guess this is sort of "unofficial" at the moment? Or did I miss something. Either are equally possible. :)

nikomatsakis (Nov 13 2018 at 20:27, on Zulip):

PS, I'm interested in CUDA too :)

gnzlbg (Nov 13 2018 at 20:39, on Zulip):

So it’s unofficial, we haven’t made an announcement yet

gnzlbg (Nov 13 2018 at 20:39, on Zulip):

I’m in a conference till Thursday but

gnzlbg (Nov 13 2018 at 20:40, on Zulip):

There are a couple of people that are using the rust nvptx backend which is “tier-4” at the moment

gnzlbg (Nov 13 2018 at 20:41, on Zulip):

And two of us do computational fluid dynamics and the others do ray tracing,
Image processing, etc

gnzlbg (Nov 13 2018 at 20:42, on Zulip):

Last week things broke for the 1000th time and I organized this over the weekend to see if we can get This at least to a tier-2 stage

gnzlbg (Nov 13 2018 at 20:42, on Zulip):

Everybody has their own framework, but everybody hates fixing basic thinks like linking kernels, so it has worked out better than I expected
