Next Meetup

Bemutatjuk a Juliát / Introduction to Julia
Update #1: I'm very happy to announce that Avik Sengupta, the VP of Engineering at Julia Computing will join us and give a talk on Julia's performance claims. Update #2: The "Introduction to Julia" talk will also be held in English. === Program === Presentation #1: Introduction to Julia (by Csaba Hoch) Julia is a high-level, dynamically typed, general-purpose programming language. The Julia source code is compiled to native machine code by a JIT (just-in-time) compiler, which makes Julia able to provide an environment for writing high performance applications. Nowadays it is mostly used for performing calculations and scientific analyses, thanks to its speed and convenient language constructs. In this presentation Csaba will show the basics of the Julia language, its most important principles, capabilities, and the ecosystem around the language. Csaba will also give an overview about how they use Julia in a production environment. Presentation #2: Julia is fast - What, Why, How (by Avik Sengupta) In this talk, Avik will dive deep into Julia's performance claims, showing how it compares to other languages, and explaining the language features that make it so. After the presentations, we will have a Q&A session. === Speaker bios === Csaba Hoch is a developer at Cursor Insight Hungary, building the backend of motion analysis systems in Erlang and Julia. Avik Sengupta is a long time contributor to Julia and its ecosystem, and is currently the VP of Engineering at Julia Computing. === Location === ELTE Informatikai Kar Pázmány Péter sétány 1/C Déli tömb (Southern building) - The big red building 0-804 Lóczy Lajos terem (ground floor) Here is a map of the Déli tömb's ground floor: It is easier to find the room if you enter the building on the western entrance (Nyugati bejárat, which is at the bottom of the picture).

    What we're about

    Julia is a high-level, dynamically typed, general-purpose programming language. Nowadays it is mostly used for performing calculations and scientific analyses, thanks to its speed and convenient language constructs. Presentations and other events related to the Julia language will be organized in this meetup group.

    A Julia egy magas szintű, dinamikusan típusos, általános célú programozási nyelv. Manapság számítások, tudományos elemzések végrehajtására használják sebessége és kényelmes nyelvi konstrukciója miatt.
    Ebben a meetup csoportban a Julia nyelvvel kapcsolatos előadásokat és egyéb eseményeket szervezünk.
