I only picked it up a few months back but since then I've been using it quite actively and have been working on a number of packages, mostly focused on testing and have even committed to Julia itself.

An experienced software engineer, for the last 10 years I've been working in finance, working with quant research teams to develop new trading strategies. Currently using a python/numpy/pandas stack but keen to see if Julia could replace this.
