11/09/18 An Introduction to Julia
November 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This workshop aims to introduce both users of scripting languages and advanced programmers to the Julia ecosystem and explore details about the Julia v1.0 language which can help produce efficient and readable code.
The goal of the workshop is for students to understand where Julia can be applied and be well-equipped to start using Julia in their own research. Students will learn about the current state of Julia development (IDEs, documentation, where to get help), how to write efficient code by understanding some of Julia’s internals via small projects, solve problems using advanced Julia features (metaprogramming, multiple-dispatch, etc.), and learn workarounds to common issues newcomers face (scoping problems, type conversions, etc.).
