7pm Talk start


"Julia - Shooting Star or Flash in the Pan?" by Dr. Malcolm Sherrington, Julia User Group

Julia is a new language from MIT which has created considerable interest since it was launched two years ago. In this talk of the London Julia User Group, discusses Julia and why we should take note of it as Data Scientists, contrasting it with current approaches offered by Python, R and Matlab etc.  It has been designed from the outset to be flexible, fast and with some unique features but are these sufficient to establish Julia as a major force in software development or will it remain a clique programming language or sink without trace?


Community update, beer break


"Head to Head: Lattice vs ggplot2" by Andy Nicholls, Head of Consulting @Mango Solutions.

In this talk Andy will present R graphics users with enough information to make an informed choice as to which graphics package best meets their needs. Andy has an MMath in mathematics and MSc in statistics. Prior to joining Mango he spent 4 years working as a Senior Statistician at GlaxoSmithKline in all phases of clinical development. Andy is skilled in R and SAS amongst other languages and is a promoter of good graphics practice
