Note that this meeting is the second Tuesday of the month, not the first.
This is our monthly meeting. Normally some of us go on to the pub afterwards.
Simon Byrne will present: A hands on introduction to Julia
This is an introduction to the Julia language. Heavily inspired by Python, it is a dynamic language that aims to be enjoyable and easy to use as well as high performance, in order to avoid the "two language problem", particularly common in technical computing.
This is planned to be a practical session using Raspberry Pi's
graciously loaned by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. However you may still want to bring along a laptop.
Simon Byrne has been using Julia since 2012, and now works for Julia Computing (https://juliacomputing.com/). He is also still an avid user and fan of Python.
Again, please note that this is on Tuesday 9th May, the second Tuesday of the month.
Late breaking news: The nice people from Julia Computing will be providing pizza.
