JuliaHub from Julia Computing: JuliaHub is the entry point for all things Julia: explore the ecosystem, build packages and deploy a supercomputer at the click of a button. JuliaHub also allows you to develop Julia applications interactively using a browser-based IDE or by using the Pluto notebook environment and then scale workloads to thousands of cores . Version 5 features a brand new user interface, reduced app startup latency, and many more usability enhancements. JuliaHub is the easiest way to start developing in Julia or share your work using dashboards and notebooks. A free JuliaHub tutorial from Dr. Matt Bauman (Julia Computing) is available on YouTube.

JuliaSim: JuliaSim is a next generation cloud-based modeling and simulation platform, combining the latest techniques from scientific machine learning with equation-based digital twin modeling and simulation. Dr. Chris Rackauckas presented Accelerating Simulation of Stiff Nonlinear Systems Using Continuous-Time Echo State Networks with JuliaSim. Click here for more information.

Pumas from Pumas-AI: Pumas is a healthcare analytics platform facilitating quantitative capabilities across the drug development cycle. It is designed from the ground up in Julia to allow users to scale, integrate and accelerate their quantitative scientific activities all under one umbrella. Pumas is a product of Pumas-AI and deployed through the JuliaHub platform from Julia Computing to leverage JuliaHub's ease of use and scalability. Julia Computing is a development partner and reseller of Pumas. Click here for more information.

Julia 1.6 Addresses Latency Issues: LWN’s Lee Phillips reports that Julia version 1.6 “significantly reduces time to first plot” which was the number one technical complaint about Julia in last year’s Julia User & Developer Survey.

Julia Used for LIDAR Laser Systems: Researchers at the Leibniz Institute for Atmospheric Physics in Germany are using Julia to measure atmospheric temperature and wind speed. Dr. Josef Höffner explains: “We perform complex data acquisition and control, with 30 high speed signals, using three Spectrum Instrumentation cards, operating in closed loop operation 24/7. Our laser makes 500 pulses per second and we have to calculate, in real time, what has to happen next and adjust the controls. For that we have to get the result quickly. That means fast electronics, fast evaluation and then fast control of the hardware. We have found Julia offers a unique combination of speed and dynamic programming, simplifying the software development.”

Income Tax Analysis Using Julia: Hallison Paz (Programação Dinâmica) features in this YouTube video using Julia for income tax analysis.

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. Julia has been downloaded by users at more than 10,000 companies and is used at more than 1,500 universities. Julia co-creators are the winners of the 2019 James H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software and the 2019 Sidney Fernbach Award. 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.

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