I am going to tag this as "off-topic" with hopes that people can steer me in the right direction.
I quickly read through the syntax guide and figured out how to deal with higher order functions, a Functor protocol, simple generics, pattern matching etc. The language looks really fun.
I am curious about folks doing data science with Swift who have come from Python. What libraries are you using to replace numpy, scipy, pandas? Even if they are incomplete. A big deal for me is that they don't depend on Accelerate (on Linux). I found Nifty, but development looks stalled.
Lastly, is anyone thinking about cross-platform implementation of Accelerate. I don't think this is something I could do, but it would be really useful from a usability standpoint. Personally, the vDSP library would be immensely useful.
