Newsletter November 2022 - Julia Computing Is Now JuliaHub!

By Andrew Claster | Nov 21, 2022

Julia Computing Is Now JuliaHub: The JuliaHub platform is designed to accelerate the development and deployment of Julia programs by technical users in a variety of engineering and computational disciplines. JuliaHub makes it easy for Julia users to explore the open source ecosystem to create, share and manage packages, to leverage parallel computing and GPUs for large-scale computations, and to serve Julia applications through web APIs. In addition to being a general purpose platform, JuliaHub also provides a suite of vertical domain-specific products that leverage this platform, including JuliaSim, Pumas, PumasQSP and Cedar. JuliaHub is cloud-first but is also available on-prem and even air-gapped.

JuliaHub has become the heart of our business and strategy, to the extent that people in the Julia community often think the company is already named JuliaHub. It only makes sense to rename the company to reflect that focus and direction,” explains Stefan Karpinksi, Julia co-creator and JuliaHub co-founder and Chief Product Officer.

What isn’t changing?

  • Our participation in the open source Julia project

  • JuliaHub powers a game-changing, composable product suite for modeling and simulation. This includes Pumas and PumasQSP for drug development, JuliaSim for modeling and simulation of multi-physical systems, and Cedar for electronic design automation

  • JuliaHub is led by the same co-founders: Dr. Viral Shah (CEO), Deepak Vinchhi (COO), Stefan Karpinski (CPO), Dr. Jeff Bezanson (CTO), Keno Fischer (CTO – R&D) and Dr. Alan Edelman (Chief Scientist)

Quantum Computing with Julia: Dr. Katharine Hyatt (Center for Computational Quantum Physics, Flatiron Institute) has published Introducing Braket.jl - Quantum Computing with Julia. “Braket.jl is a new, experimental package that lets you build quantum circuits and programs in Julia and run them on Amazon Braket. It's a ground-up rewrite of the Amazon Braket Python SDK allowing Julia users and developers to work with Amazon Braket and quantum computing in their preferred language. The package is Apache-2.0 licensed, and currently supports Julia >=1.6 on x64 Windows, Linux, or OSX. Amazon Braket is a fully managed AWS service that helps researchers, scientists, and developers get started with quantum computing. Through Amazon Braket, you can develop, run, test, and benchmark quantum algorithms on state-of-the-art quantum hardware and simulators.” Click here for more information.

Julia Goes Greek: Numerical Linear Algebra and Scientific Calculations by Professor Marilena Mitroulis is a new Greek language mathematics textbook using Julia. “An innovation of the book is the presentation of selected scientific calculations in the Julia programming language. This language is particularly friendly for table calculations and is freely available (open source software). It is worth noting that in 2019, the highly prestigious James H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software was awarded to researchers who contributed to its development.” More information is available here.
