I noticed @ferrine & @fonnesbeck pushed to the new
pymc4_protoypes repository, but (very much understandably) the documentation is quite sparse right now.
Just wanted to start this thread to perhaps jumpstart the production of docs that can help others get started when contributing to the new backend.
Also wanted to make sure we/contributors don’t get emotionally attached to a particular backend implementation! (Especially with all of the effort that will go into implementing each backend.)
What are the objective metrics that we are going to evaluate against that everybody will agree upon? I’m happy to pull in a set of performance profiling benchmarks (most likely going to be condensed versions of the examples gallery + my own recipes + stuff from others’ blogs e.g. @AustinRochford).
