Topic: Ista (Liking) Julia for Pythonistas
Speaker: Suresh Velagapudi
I start with some examples of the optional typing feature of Python 3.5
and compare it with that of Julia. Illustrative examples of
interoperability of Julia and Python follow. I conclude with the
differences in syntax and semantics that mattered for the machine
learning application I built using both languages.
Suresh Velagapudi has been a Pythonista for just 5 short years while his involvement with Julia has been for
15 long months. His Ista (Liking) for Julia is because of his 15 year
involvement with FORTRAN during the stone age of computing. He picked up
a PhD (1996) in computer science and automation from IISc Bengaluruto
to compensate for his B.Tech (1971) in Aero from IIT Madras. Though
formally retired, he is not tired of explaining the intricacies of
the functional programming paradigm to those programmers who find fun in functional languages like Julia.
