Book Description

In this learning path, you will learn to use an interesting and dynamic programming language—Julia! You will get a chance to tackle your numerical and data problems with Julia. You’ll begin the journey by setting up a running Julia platform before exploring its various built-in types. We’ll then move on to the various functions and constructs in Julia. We’ll walk through the two important collection types—arrays and matrices in Julia.

You will dive into how Julia uses type information to achieve its performance goals, and how to use multiple dispatch to help the compiler emit high performance machine code. You will see how Julia’s design makes code fast, and you’ll see its distributed computing capabilities.

By the end of this learning path, you will see how data works using simple statistics and analytics, and you’ll discover its high and dynamic performance—its real strength, which makes it particularly useful in highly intensive computing tasks.

This learning path combines some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete, curated package. It includes content from the following Packt products:
