Julia: A Fresh Approach to Numerical Computing
Julia is a relatively new programming language, mainly designed for numerical computing, which is gaining more and more attention in the scientific community because of the speed and the high productivity it provides. This talk will go through some of Julia’s main features, presenting also the largest present and future scientific applications written in this language.

About UCL Knowledge Quarter Codes Technical Socials.
These informal events are for anyone with an interest in the computational methods and technology behind research and innovation. They are an opportunity to get to know fellow practitioners, and to discuss and learn about useful tools and techniques which may help with your work.
These are held monthly, 17.00 – 18.30, with a format as follows:
- 17:00-17:45: Short talk on a tool, program, environment, language or technique of general interest to programming researchers.
- 17:45-18:30: Discussion of a matter of interest to programming researchers, inspired by the talk, over pizza and drinks.
