Julia is a high-performance programming language, but with many features more common to lower performance interpreted languages. Many of its features are well suited for numerical analysis and computational science, with functions and syntax that are built around supporting this. This tutorial presents an introduction via solving hands-on example problems; this motivates the syntax/tools in a “why” versus “what” way. The tutorial introduces participants to common ways of using Julia and basic features including operators, loops, conditionals, and functions.
