Julia - Fast and Dynamic

10th November 2014 in London at Skills Matter

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from LRUG: November meetup

Can a programming language be fast yet highly dynamic? The creators of Julia, a new language with a numeric focus intends to answer yes.

In this talk we will introduce the language, and discuss some of its design and implementation decisions that make it particularly amenable to generating efficient machine code.

We will also talk about Julia's impressive language interop features, and see examples of calling Ruby code from within Julia.
