Julia programming language workshop

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

9:00 am – 2:00 pm in M1-A303

This in-depth course will be an introduction to the Julia programming language. Julia is a relatively new programming language designed for technical computing. It is designed to be simple and expressive, but perform at speeds comparable to C. It has a substantial package library and an elegant foreign function interface, with which one can easily call C, R, and Python.

This workshop will be by taught by Jeff Bezanson, co-creator of Julia, and will introduce the language, going from basics through data handling and parallelism. The workshop includes four hours of instruction and a one-hour lunch break.

This course is open to Fred Hutch faculty, staff, and affiliates (i.e., anyone with a Fred Hutch ID). Attendees must bring a laptop to the class.
