Learn dynamic programming with Julia to build apps for data analysis, visualization, machine learning, and the webKey FeaturesLeverage Julia's high speed and efficiency to build fast, efficient applicationsPerform supervised and unsupervised machine learning and time series analysisTackle problems concurrently and in a distributed environmentBook Description
Julia offers the high productivity and ease of use of Python and R with the lightning-fast speed of C++. There's never been a better time to learn this language, thanks to its large-scale adoption across a wide range of domains, including fintech, biotech and artificial intelligence (AI).
You will begin by learning how to set up a running Julia platform, before exploring its various built-in types. This Learning Path walks you through two important collection types: arrays and matrices. You'll be taken through how type conversions and promotions work, and in further chapters you'll study how Julia interacts with operating systems and other languages. You'll also learn about the use of macros, what makes Julia suitable for numerical and scientific computing, and how to run external programs.
Once you have grasped the basics, this Learning Path goes on to how to analyze the Iris dataset using DataFrames. While building a web scraper and a web app, you'll explore the use of functions, methods, and multiple dispatches. In the final chapters, you'll delve into machine learning, where you'll build a book recommender system.
By the end of this Learning Path, you'll be well versed with Julia and have the skills you need to leverage its high speed and efficiency for your applications.
