September Meetup: Binary Builder and Emergent Design

Sep 30, 2019 · London, United Kingdom

We're back after summer, with a couple of exciting talks. We are at new venue, the UCL AI Center at 90 High Holborn. Please ensure that your full name is mentioned in your Meetup profile when you register, otherwise you will not be able to enter the building due to security regulations.

Mosè Giordano has been amazingly productive recently in creating binary artifacts for Julia packages, most recently working on the Cairo and Gtk library systems. He will demonstrate how to simply and quickly use BinaryBuilder to create build artifacts for native depencies, ensuring that package users do not have to install and use a compiler temselves.

Mosè is a research software engineer at UCL.

Lyndon White is a long time contributor to the JuliaLang ecosystem,
and is passionate about building the tools to do research better. He will speak about the the Emergent Features of JuliaLang.

This talk will explain how various intended features of the Julia programming language come together to create features that were not designed from the get go. It will detail how one gets from multiple dispatch, generated functions, and the type-system to
run time source transforms (e.g. Cassette), powerful traits, units and more. And how these in-turn lead to general solutions allowing for e.g.
source-to-source Automatic Differenciation, declarative function properties resulting in input transformations, and other such things that make julia such a productive and expresive language.

Lyndon is a research software engineer at Invenia Labs, Cambridge.

    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. Want to show what you are working on? Questions to ask? Want to meet others who are using Julia? Let's meetup and talk Julia!
