D is a fantastic efficient and fast replacement of Python which
even has great plotting and other analysis features as ggplotd!
To gain traction in numerical and statistical computing it is
important to provide great optimization, automatic differential
(AD) (reversed-mode AD (e.g. in mc-stan.org for Bayesian stuff)
and/or forward-mode as e.g. for R at GSOC-2010 - there is no
reason for numerical diff these days anymore, and you may
mess-up your stuff using it!), and Bayesian routines. D is
laking on these basic features (my personal opinion - correct
me if I am wrong).
Well, you can always try updating the ideas page anyways. Today
was the application deadline, but I don't think there is anything
they can do to stop us from updating a page on our Wiki. Just
make sure to add yourself to the mentor's page.
