The Power of Multiple Dispatch

The Julia Language's suitability for scientific computing derives from a handful of basic and consistent design decisions. Multiple dispatch lies at the core of this, and is probably the most distinguishable feature of the language.

In this talk, Avik Sengupta will provide a quick overview of Julia syntax, and then dive into multiple dispatch to discover how it provides the ability to create fast and expressive numerical code. We will see how multiple dispatch provides a solution to the "expression problem".

Avik has developed Java applications for investment banks for over a decade. Two years ago he discovered Julia, and hasn't looked back since. He is a contributor to the core language and the maintainer of various Julia packages.
