PLON Projects – Introduction to Julia

What is Julia? It’s a language designed for data science and technical computing and its main features are simplicity and speed. It was created by Jeff Bezanson, Alan Edelman, Stefan Karpinski, and Viral B. Shah. Compared to other languages used for similar goals it’s one the fastest solutions out there and thanks to the active community you can use a growing number of packages. Although rankings like the TIOBE Index or RedMonk Programming Language Ranking state that Julia popularity is below the top50 languages, it is surely something worth trying – especially if you are interested in getting the best out of your datasets. We use Julia a lot and in our opinion – you should at least give it a try 🙂

To get you started, we have prepared an introduction to the basics of Julia language which includes:

  1. Datatypes and Operators
  2. Variables and Collections
  3. Linear algebra
  4. Functions
  5. Control Flow
  6. Types
  7. Multiple-Dispatch
  8. Input and Output

We just wanted to give You the current update. We’re running v1.0.1:.

Last changes:

  • bug fix in opening web ssh terminal – the password from modal was not copied correctly 
  • tags autocomplete and dashboard loading were optimized

Future plans:

  • migrate from glusterFS to enterprise level NAS, I/O operations will be faster and we wiil be able to offer you more disk space for your projects
  • recently we have suspended access to Python 3 projects because it caused some problems, but now we are working to bring it back
  • we are working on new project templates for machine learning and computer vision, stay tuned!
