This book is for you if you are a data scientist or working on any technical or scientific computation projects. The book assumes you have a basic working knowledge of high-level dynamic languages such as MATLAB, R, Python, or Ruby.
Julia is a new open source programming language that is used in the field of data science computing. It was created to solve the dilemma between high-level slow code and fast but low-level code, and the necessity to use both to achieve high performance. This book will give you a head start to tackle your numerical and data problems with Julia. Your journey will begin by learning how to set up a running Julia platform before exploring its various built-in types. You will then move on to cover the different functions and constructs in Julia. The book will then walk you through the two important collection types—arrays and matrices. Over the course of the book, you will also be introduced to homoiconicity, the meta-programming concept in Julia.
Towards the concluding part of the book, you will also learn how to run external programs. This book will cover all you need to know about Julia to leverage its high speed and efficiency.
Ivo Balbaert is currently a web programming and databases lecturer at CVO Antwerpen (www.cvoantwerpen.be), a community college in Belgium. He received a PhD in applied physics in 1986 from the University of Antwerp. He worked for 20 years in the software industry as a developer and consultant in several companies, and, for 10 years, as a project manager at the University Hospital of Antwerp. In 2000, he switched over to partly teach and partly develop software (KHM Mechelen, CVO Antwerp).
He also wrote Programmeren met Ruby en Rails, an introductory book in Dutch about developing in Ruby and Rails, by Van Duuren Media.
In 2012, he authored The Way To Go, a book on the Go programming language by IUniverse.
In 2014, he wrote Learning Dart (in collaboration with Dzenan Ridzanovic) and Dart Cookbook, both by Packt Publishing.
Finally, in 2015, he wrote Getting started with Julia and Rust Essentials, both by Packt Publishing.
