Episode #45

Air Date 17 July 2020

@12 PM Eastern

We will be joined by Jeff Bezanson and Katie Hyatt who will talk about the work they have been doing with Julia. Julia was designed from the beginning for high performance. It programs compile to native code for multiple platforms via LLVM. Julia is dynamically typed, feels like a scripting language, and has good support for interactive use.

Julia has a rich language of descriptive datatypes, and type declarations can be used to clarify and solidify programs. This language uses multiple dispatch as a paradigm, making it easy to express many object-oriented and functional programming patterns. It provides asynchronous I/O, debugging, logging, profiling, a package manager, and more.
