Julia language

Reading an article about Python, I ended up reading about a new language called Julia, with a philosophy closed to Python.

What is Julia language

Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library.

For a new user, it’s important to know where is the Julia documentation: http://docs.julialang.org/en/release-0.4/.

If you want to try, here you can download the installers.

I haven’t try mainly for two reasons: the first one is that I am busy with Python, and the second is that after having a look at the documentation, this language is oriented to technical computing, and I am more interested in database programming.

I present you a new option for those new programmers if you want to try something new and more simple that R.

Have a nice day!
