Newsletter December 2018 - Julia Is a GitHub Star

By JuliaHub | Dec 04, 2018

Julia GitHub stars have nearly doubled since the release of Julia 1.0 and Julia is one of the top 10 languages on GitHub measured by stars and forks. 

Forbes has named Julia Computing co-founder and CTO Keno Fischer to its prestigious ‘30 Under 30’ list of young leaders in enterprise technology.

The JuliaCon 2018 highlight video and JuliaCon 2018 presentations are available on the JuliaCon 2018 YouTube channel.


JuliaTeam is an enterprise solution that works seamlessly behind your organization’s firewall, resolves proxy server issues and facilitates package development, installation, management and control. For more information, contact us.

Julia Computing offers online and offline training including Intro to Julia, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, and customized courses at every level. Registration is available here. Live instructor-led online courses include:

Julia Computing has awarded more than $18 thousand in diversity and inclusion grants to 5 recipients, generously funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

The Financial Times reports “US government number-crunchers have been trying to measure the value of “free” open-source software, such as R, Python, Julia and JavaScript, concluding that if captured in statistics these would be worth about $3bn a year.”

The third annual JuMP-dev workshop takes place March 12-14 in Santiago, Chile. Registration is free and talk proposal submissions are encouraged.

New Julia case studies:

  • Racefox is using Julia with wearable technology to coach competitive skiers

  • Nature Communications published a paper on single cell RNA sequencing by researchers from the RIKEN Advanced Center for Computing and Communication (ACCC) Bioinformatics Research Unit (BRU)

About Julia and Julia Computing

Julia is the fastest high performance open source computing language for data, analytics, algorithmic trading, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other scientific and numeric computing applications. Julia solves the two language problem by combining the ease of use of Python and R with the speed of C++. Julia provides parallel computing capabilities out of the box and unlimited scalability with minimal effort. For example, Julia has run at petascale on 650,000 cores with 1.3 million threads to analyze over 56 terabytes of data using Cori, one of the ten largest and most powerful supercomputers in the world. With more than 2 million downloads, 1,900 registered packages, 41 thousand GitHub stars and +101% annual download growth, Julia is one of the top programming languages developed on GitHub. Julia adoption is growing rapidly in finance, insurance, machine learning, energy, robotics, genomics, aerospace, medicine and many other fields.

Julia Computing was founded in 2015 by all the creators of Julia to develop products and provide professional services to businesses and researchers using Julia.
