Julia Language - Training and Workshop
17 Jan 2017 - 20 Jan 2017

It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library. Julia’s Base library, largely written in Julia itself, also integrates mature, best-of-breed open source C and Fortran libraries for linear algebra, random number generation, signal processing, and string processing. In addition, the Julia developer community is contributing a number of external packages through Julia’s built-in package manager at a rapid pace. IJulia, a collaboration between the Jupyter and Julia communities, provides a powerful browser-based graphical notebook interface to Julia. 

The Julia language is now a well established language in the technical computing space, and is a high-performance alternative to Matlab, R and NumPy. It is unusual as a language in that it feels equally comfortable for both those with computer science backgrounds and those with engineering, applied math, and scientific backgrounds. New users can readily write high-performance code using the programming techniques they’re already used to and without being forced to vectorize all algorithms for speed. More experienced Julia programmers grow to appreciate the expressiveness of the language and its affordance of clean, high-level abstractions without the typical performance costs.

This consultation workshop presents you an opportunity to convert your current codes to Julia. The session will explore and suggest ways to implement them in Julia format. The experts will delve in and provide the following: 

  • Hands-on code translation into Julia
  • Providing guidance
  • Discussions on translation strategies
  • Providing example code
  • Any other matter that can directly help them move to Julia
