Round 3: Julia and Docker

  • August 7, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Optoro Chinatown

Heya! This round we'll have a language (Julia) and a toolkit (Docker). 

Harlan Harris - Julia

Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language designed for technical and numerical computing that has learned the lessons from the successes and limitations of Matlab, C++, R, Python, and more. Features include a simple syntax, multiple dispatch as a fundamental design pattern, fast JIT compilation via LLVM, metaprogramming, easy access to C and Fortran libraries, a sophisticated standard library written mostly in Julia itself, and a rapidly growing package repository. 

Eric Noriega - Docker

Docker is a toolset enabling containerization of applications on Linux. We’re going to do a quick review of the concepts, show some of the tooling and talk about why developers benefit from using containers, both for DevOps style deployment as well as in their own workflow.

----

We're just getting started so we're looking for people to speak. It's ok if you've never spoken before or if you've spoken hundreds of times, we want to hear from you! 

We're looking for talks about anything interesting to programmers, come share about your favorite language or framework, or learn something new and talk about how it went! We're hoping for talks  about anything but here are a few things members have mentioned wanting to learn about recently: Go, C, C++, Haskell, Erlang, and Elixir.

    My presentation (iPython Notebooks) can be viewed here: http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/HarlanH/JuliaPolygotPresentation/blob/master/JuliaPolyglotPresentation.ipynb and here: https://github.com/HarlanH/JuliaPolygotPresentation/blob/master/Meetup%20API%20and%20VennEuler.ipynb You should be able to download and run the first (after installing the appropriate Julia packages). The second requires cloning the in-development VennEuler.jl package, and creating an apikey file with your Meetup.com API key. Thanks for coming everyone!

      oops, second one should be here: http://nbviewer.ipyth...­ the image didn't show up for some reason. I'll drop it in the photos for this event...

    Based on Harlan's presentation, it seems appropriate that all R users really should have a copy of Julia installed and, where it makes sense, runs a Julia job to compare with the R solution. Thanks, Harlan!!! (The Linux guy was good as well, no slap on him.)

    We'll start the presentations around 7:15, please try to get here before 7, our security guard leaves then and after that we'll have to come let you in. If you get stuck outside please reply to this message and we'll let you in.

    Is the presentation starting at 7, or is that when we should get there for pizza? I'm thinking 6:30 arrival is about right; please confirm.

    August 7, 2014

    • Joshua S.

      Yeah, between 6:30 and 7 is great. Pizza should be here around 6:45.

    So when is your Haskell presentation, Josh? ;-)

      Ha, maybe in a month or two ;)
