Julia for Programmers

Led by a developer who has worked with Julia since its creation.

Is this the course for you?

Julia is a modern general purpose language. It was concieved to solve the two-language problem within scientific computing: Algorithms are often developed in an expressive language such as Python or R, but have to be rewritten to Fortran or C to achieve desired performance.

With Julia you only need one language, because Julia can walk like Python and run like C.

This three-day course is designed for developers with experience of other languages such as Python, R, Matlab, or Java and who want to get up to speed on Julia.

The course focusses on teaching good software engineering skills, so your code will be properly tested and neatly organized into functions and modules. With knowledge of Julia you will be able to write high performance code for scientific computing, data science and machine learning.

  • We start immediately with working programs.
  • Testing is integral to our approach.
  • Taught on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.
