Say Hi to Julia

By Ammar Sajdi

Well, Do not get too excited, Julia is a programming language. It saw the light on Valentine’s day, 2012.
While it can be an effective general purpose programming language, but the real strength of Julia is the fact that provides for high performance, parallel and distributed computing.  


Well parallel and distributed caught my attention, i never wrote a program that can unleash the power of parallel computing. I locked at the language, and it is really easy to do parallel computing. This makes it suitable for applications that involve intense numerical analysis

if you want to know what people think of Julia refer to

There was never a doubt in my mind that Julia is good, probably the best language for the future, will succeed/already has for the scientific audience (as clearly better than all alternatives, for performance work where you also want to be "dynamic"). It's estimated to have exponential growth of users, doubling every 9 months now, estimated at 100,000 users, with I forget how many downloads per day. Can look it up (it's in a video on youtube, from one of the key Julia people).

I'm sure the rest of (non-HPC) programmers will eventually clue up, and use it as the general language that is is.

finally, i met a young relative of mine who is studying Engineering at Stanford, and part of the industrial engineering curriculum is to take a course in Julia programming
