During the course we will refer to several examples implemented in Julia, using packages, such as JuMP, Plots, PyPlot, among many others. Julia is a brand new language that combines simplicity and remarkable performance. The main website for downloading the language is http://www.julialang.org. This is also the main place for finding information you might need.
Very important: please use version 0.64. Version 1.0 has only been released a few months ago and developers are still updating packages. JuMP, for example, is still not working for 1.0.
You will have an introductory session on how to install and use Julia, but you will need to learn by yourself how to use the language for the purposes of the course. Below you can find some helpful links for self-studying. Please let me know if you find others worth including.
