Server icon

The APL Farm (invite links: discord, matrix) is a group of Discord and Matrix channels dedicated to the discussion of array programming. As of December 2021, the Discord chatroom has reached 364 members.

The APL Farm is intended as a welcoming space for APL and non-APL users alike. The main channels that are bridged together across Matrix and Discord are:

  • General discussion
  • APL
  • J
  • BQN
  • K
  • Off topic

In addition to these, the discord server has rooms for Nial, self-promotion, code challenges and music discussion.

Many new users have joined The APL Farm as beginners, often from sources like YouTube videos and the Array Cast. Some array language veterans and implementers like dzaima, Marshall Lochbaum, Adám Brudzewsky, ngn, John Earnest, Michal J Wallace and John Gibbons frequent the server.

Features

Moderators

The main moderators of the APL Farm are Adám Brudzewsky, dzaima and Nathan D. Rogers.

Executing Code

The APL Farm has two bots for code execution: BQNbot and APLFarmBot

  • BQNBot executes codeblocks starting with bqn) in dzaima/BQN.
  • APLFarmBot executes codeblocks in multiple array languages. The command names for each language can be previewed with the h) command.
