We invite you to say a little something about yourself and your organization, and what motivated you to take a closer look at Pants. Youโ€™ll be helping us improve future open source outreach, so thanks very much!

Hey! I am Marc and work as a ML-engineer in the Merlin team at NVIDIA. I grew up in the Netherlands, but currently based in Stockholm (Sweden). I focus on developing open-source tooling for recommender-systems, with a big focus on performance on GPUs. I am the main contributor to projects like Transformers4Rec & Merlin models. I would like to evaluate if Pants good be a good fit for us in order to speed up our testing. Especially for Merlin Models where our CI currently takes over an hour. I am not sure if itโ€™s straightforward to integrate Pants since our library has a few different backends (like TensorFlow & PyTorch) and not all of them play nicely in a single virtualenv.

Cool! @bored-energy-25252 has a lot of insight into using Pants for ML. Perhaps can suggest what to anticipate re TensorFlow and PyTorch?

Hey everyone Iโ€™m Zach. Starting different gig this coming week (primarily engineering in Scala and Java) so refreshing with the original Scala path, which included pants.

Terrific! Pants does of course have support for both Scala and Java. Good luck in the new gig! Let us know how we can help you.

To be honest, Pants' support of Scala and Java is still experimental: https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/issues/17790

We have a long deprecation cycle, so are cautious about making changes like taking something out of experimental status. But the support itself is about 18 months old.

Here is my suggestion on Java/Scala, If you are building backend projects using Java or Scala, it is ok to use Pants now. But pants is still not mature enough to package Spark jobs.
