In this chapter, we explored the expression format in which Julia is parsed. Because this format is a data structure, we can manipulate this in the code, and this is precisely what macros can do. We explored a number of them, and also some built-in ones that can be useful.

In the next chapter, we will extend our vision to the network environment in which Julia runs, and we will explore its powerful capabilities for parallel execution.
