Julia is probably best known for its speed as compared to its 'rivals', Matlab, R and Python. By seeking to answer a seeminglyextremely simple question, Malcolm Sherrington will discuss where the speed comes from and also delve into some of the features of Julia which really set it apart.
Also he will discuss to what extent attempts to speed up other languages can succeed, mapping out the trends which will dictate the shape of computing to come in the nearer future.
As well as being the organiser of the London Julia UG meetup group and Malcolm is also is a co-organiser of the HPC Computing and of the Financial Engineers and Quants groups. He is speaking again at London Julia after a 15 months absence.
Malcolm has given a number of talks in the London area and abroad on Julia, R and finance. Also he is in the final throws of revising his up and coming book "Mastering Julia"
