Technology

Backrecord makes use of the following technology:

  • C# / .NET - still too good to move away from and now we don't even want to.
  • Mono - so we can deploy to cheap linux machines.
  • LAPACK - to speed things up.
  • CUDA - to speed things up and make us confused.
  • Redis - because we wanted to try it out.
  • NHiredis - because we didn't like the API of the incumbent.
  • NPlot - because Matt wrote it, back in the day.
  • nanomsg - compelling even in alpha.
  • Nginx - seemed like the thing to do.
  • Git - because often someone's overly inflated head is perfectly well justified.

Mono version: 2.10.8.1 (Debian 2.10.8.1-1ubuntu2.3)
