It would be great if we could use dsx for octave. Octave (or matlab) is widely used on machine learning courses. octave is not supported by spark, but that is ok - the key thing here is that students can have a familiar environment when they move between octave and python or r.
It would be great for teachers to be able to share dsx projects that contain the coursework for a machine learning course.
Thank you for the idea, we haven't seen much adoption for this tool so we won't be integrating at this time.
