Book Description

If you’re just learning how to program, Julia is an excellent JIT-compiled, dynamically-typed language with a clean syntax. This hands-on guide uses Julia (version 1.0) to walk you through one step at a time, beginning with basic concepts before moving on to more advanced capabilities, such as creating new types and multiple dispatch.

Designed from the beginning for high performance, Julia is a general-purpose language not only ideal for numerical analysis and computational science, but also for or scripting. Through exercises in each chapter, you’ll try out programming concepts as you learn them.

Think Julia is ideal for students at the high school or college level, as well as self-learners, home-schooled students, and professionals who need to learn programming basics.
