Where goest thou, Julia - Part 2
May 11, 2021 Season 1 Episode 8
RSE

In this episode we continue our journey into the Julia programming language and dive a little deeper into some aspects of Julia. For that reason I met with 2 engineers: Jarvis Frost from Imperial College and Lyndon White from InveniaLabs. Both wrote a lot of Julia code and we discuss some of the projects they have worked on.

The projects in question:
Jarvis' project example: Polaron Mobility
-  https://github.com/jarvist/PolaronMobility.jl   

Differentiation with Julia
- https://github.com/JuliaDiff   
- https://discourse.julialang.org/t/state-of-automatic-differentiation-in-julia/43083

Lyndon's project: NamedDims
- https://github.com/invenia/NamedDims.jl 

Named Tensor post (mentioned in episode) by Alexander Rush http://nlp.seas.harvard.edu/NamedTensor
