Meetup on 23rd July
Julia has many of the strengths of both Matlab and Python but is quicker than both. There are lots of new an exciting packages being built in Julia and in this presentation Samuel Colvin will demonstrate some of the best and give a short guide to creating your own ones.
Samuel comes from an oil industry background where Matlab rules. Now he is a free lance developer, a Python user but also a Julia devotee.
Samuel has recently authored a graphics package Bokeh which works with IJulia. Bokeh is a Python interactive visualization library that targets modern web browsers for presentation for constructing of novel graphics in the style of D3.js
