  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Peroxide

    Rust numeric library with R, MATLAB & Python syntax

    peroxide seems really cool, but I haven't had the opportunity to use it much yet.

  • julia

    The Julia Programming Language

    You even get special matrices in julia. Here are the lapack routines in libstd.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • PackageCompiler.jl

    Compile your Julia Package

    *: This is possible in Julia using PackageCompiler.jl but it ships the entire runtime, so big binaries, and the process isn't too smooth yet. In theory, you're definitely capable of compiling into small binaries that don't embed the runtime or at least a big chunk of it, but nobody has worked on this enough yet
