visions, a system for extendable, performant data types in Python.
And you could define your own types, and that’s where I got very interested. (..) For me the key idea was that I could basically get my own types.
I can get better types and more flexible types and more efficient types. It’s still the fundamental idea when I want to write a program, I want to write it with my types that is appropriate to my problem and under the constraints I’m under with hardware, software, environment etc. and that’s the key idea.
