  1. * the first benchmark you’re referring to isn’t using the most optimized compiler flags for nim, see https://github.com/lh3/biofast/issues/21#issuecomment-707979684 where you can get easily a 1.5x speedup by using `-d:danger –gc:arc`

    * worth mentioning is you can embed a python session using nim (or vice versa) via https://github.com/yglukhov/nimpy so your can integrate either way

    * see also https://github.com/timotheecour/D_vs_nim for a D vs nim comparison

    * not mentioned in this article is that nim compile times are far better than typical equivalent idiomatic code in C or in particular C++

  2. Hello, nice article. I have a question, after learning a little bit of Go I can see that concurrency is super easy and powerful. What’s your opinion about Nim’s concurrency.
