Julia is a high-level dynamic language which was invented out of greed to do more. Unlike other high-level dynamic languages, Julia is really fast. It inherits design tenets from Lisp, builds on the good parts of C, MATLAB, R, Python and Ruby to create a language that is performant and highly productive at the same time.
We are proud to announce the first ever JuliaCon India. It will feature the creators of the language Jeff Bezanson, Stefan Karpinski, and Viral B Shah, and an enthusiastic contingent of Julia programmers in India. It’s a two-day event consisting of a day-long conference (9th Oct) and a workshop (10th Oct).
Interactive Visualizations and UIs in Julia
Exploration of the plotting and UI development capabilities of Julia
We will look the following packages
- Native Julia plotting with Gadfly
- Matplotlib interface PyPlot
- Julia in Jupyter/IPython IJulia
- Interact - a package to easily add knobs and switches to your code
I’m Shashi, I make UI tools for Julia users from time to time.
