Julia has quickly become the preferred programming language for data and analytics. Julia combines the functionality of quantitative environments such as R and Python with the speed of production programming languages like Java and C++ to solve big data and analytics problems. It delivers dramatic improvements in simplicity, speed, capacity, and productivity for data scientists, algorithmic traders, quants, scientists, and engineers who need to solve massive computation problems quickly and accurately.
Julia offers an unbeatable combination of simplicity plus speed that is thousands of times faster than other mathematical, scientific and statistical computing languages.
