The Julia Language

The Julia Language

''Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library.


Julia programs are organized around multiple dispatch; by defining functions and overloading them for different combinations of argument types, which can also be user-defined. ''

And more:

''A Summary of Features

''Partly because of run-time type inference (augmented by optional type annotations), and partly because of a strong focus on performance from the inception of the project, Julia’s computational efficiency exceeds that of other dynamic languages, and even rivals that of statically-compiled languages. '' [source]
