Julia is an exciting new programming language for scientific and statistical (as well as general-purpose) computing, combining the speed of C with the ease of scripting languages. It's faster We're here to learn more about Julia, discuss potential applications, and (eventually!) share cool Julia-related code. How does Julia differ from R or Python? We have no idea, but we aim to find out! Scientists, programmers, and data science-y people of all stripes are invited to join us on our quest.
