This is a past event

10 people went

Details

I will do a ~40min talk to introduce Julia (why Julia, what does it look like, who uses it, ecosystem, etc.).

Followed by a hands-on session (ca 1h). Hopefully, followed by a beer.

This is the chance for all of you who want an introduction to Julia!

For the hands-on, please bring along a laptop with:
- Julia 1.1 (or 1.2) installed [1]
- IJulia installed [2]
- download the notebooks from [3]
- install the packages "Plots" and "BenchmarkTools"

Note, if you're not a student, internet access at the location might be tricky. Come prepared.
