Hi everyone! I am José Valim, I work on the Elixir programming language, and recently I started working on a code notebook for Elixir called Livebook. We have been exploring many visual ideas lately, which brought me to this community. 🙂 In case you want to check out the work we have done so far, here is a recent presentation of mine (timestamped):

The video shows how we automatically generate diagrams from process communication, render supervision trees, visually debug pipelines, and plot charts and more!

great to have you here! I love where livebook is going 🙂
I guess many know it but just in case, @José Valim is the creator of Elixir

Hey José! Great to have you here! Just watched the video. Love the visual representations. I always thought that the actor model would lend itself so well to visualizations. Also really love the pipeline visualizer. Always something I've wanted in clojure. The memory inspection is such a good example of why we need dynamic introspectable runtimes. Love it 🙂

This is awesome! The tabbed alternate visualizations are reminiscent of Glamorous Toolkit, and the ability to run what-if games on pipelines builds on the best parts of Common Lisp.
