About This Video
Get to know how to use Types, Modules, and Packages in Julia.
Learn to emulate and implement an object oriented approach in a functional setup.
Get efficient with debugging and testing, and learn to exploit metaprogramming in Julia.
Learn to work with input and output streams in Julia, and files of different formats.
Julia is a new programming language designed for the needs of data scientists, statisticians, scientific computing, and engineers. Usually these disciplines have had to use a variety of of tools and languages:
Python with Numpy
C/C++ or Fortran for high performance
With Julia you can replace all these tools with one programming language, since it offers both flexibility and speed.
Julia is a young language with limited documentation and although rapidly growing, a small user community. Most developers today will know the object oriented paradigm used in mainstream languages such as Python, Java and C++. This presents a challenge switching to Julia which is more functionally oriented. This course will not only introduce the language, but also explain how to think differently about problems with the Julia approach.
