Hey @Josh Triplett -- I think we talked about this but I forgot what we said

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:34, on Zulip):

we currently have a question on the survey like this

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:34, on Zulip):

pasted image

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:34, on Zulip):

I think you wanted to add something about architectures to that list?

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:34, on Zulip):

do you have a list of specific bullet points you might like to see included?

Laurențiu Nicola (Nov 19 2019 at 19:35, on Zulip):

GPUs might be worth including :sweat_smile:

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:35, on Zulip):

Indeed

Laurențiu Nicola (Nov 19 2019 at 19:36, on Zulip):

Maybe also some sort of FaaS like AWS Lambda

Kyle Strand (Nov 19 2019 at 19:36, on Zulip):

And/or VR/AR-specific hardware, e.g. the Quest or Hololens

Josh Triplett (Nov 19 2019 at 19:38, on Zulip):

I honestly think this needs to be an open-ended question. However, to make the answers more structured, we could ask people to supply the canonical architecture/toolchain "triples" if they know them.

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:44, on Zulip):

ok, we already have a sort of open-ended follow-up in any case

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:46, on Zulip):

I'm not sure what to add to the bullet list regarding GPU, FaaS , etc

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:46, on Zulip):

but if people want to phrase specific bullets for me, seems ok

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:46, on Zulip):

probably "general categories" is better than too many details

nikomatsakis (Nov 19 2019 at 19:47, on Zulip):

ok, we already have a sort of open-ended follow-up in any case

we amended it to mention providing toolchain triples
