Heard of Julia but too afraid to try it out? Can Julia code really run as fast as C code? What is multiple dispatch and why is it so important in Julia? Find out at our first meeting of the Cambridge Area Julia Users Network (C.A.J.U.N.). Bring your own computer, get Julia installed and follow along our tutorial!
Our first meeting will feature lightning talks on JuliaOpt, an optimization framework written in Julia, as well as cool visualization demos using IJulia notebooks.
