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.
