TERI, Bangalore

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).

A look at how Julia can run so fast while being a high-level dynamic language

Outline

This talk is about the abstract nonsense that goes into developing a language like Julia. What exactly makes Julia come close to the speed of C? What are some future directions which will make Julia even faster?
