Fast database interfacing with MySQL.jl
A talk on the MySQL.jl package. Explains how high level interfaces in julia can attain near native C speeds.
The aim of this talk is to show how low-level programming can be done in julia. Calling C functions and working with C data types and pointers is easier in julia compared to other high level languages. Also, using type annotations and memory preallocations we can achieve near C speeds without affecting code readability.
