Julia is an easy, fast, open source language that if written well
performs nearly as well as low-level languages such as C and FORTRAN.
Its design is a dance between specialization and abstraction, providing
high machine performance without the sacrifice of human convenience.
Julia is a fresh approach to technical computing, combining expertise
from diverse fields of computational and computer science.
This video course walks you through all the steps involved in
applying the Julia ecosystem to your own data science projects. We start
with the basics and show you how to design and implement some of the
general purpose features of Julia. Is fast development and fast
execution possible at the same time? Julia provides the best of both
worlds with its wide range of types, and our course covers this in
depth. You will have organized and readable code by the end of the
course by learning how to write Lisp style macros and modules.
The course demonstrates the power of the DataFrames package to
manage, organize, and analyze data. It enables you to work with data
from various sources, perform statistical calculations on them, and
visualize their relationships in different kinds of plots through live
Julia for Data Science takes you from zero to hero, leaving you with the know-how required to apply
