Julia Training: Julia Computing offers online and offline training including Introduction to Julia, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Parallel Computing in Julia and customized courses at every level. Registration and course descriptions are available here. Live instructor-led online courses include:
Introduction to Julia
Introduction to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Julia
Parallel Computing in Julia
New Julia Textbook: Introduction to Linear Applied Algebra - Vectors, Matrices and Least Squares by Stephen Boyd and Lieven Vandenberghe uses Julia as the language of instruction and includes a Julia language companion. This is the textbook for EE103 (Stanford University) and EE133A (UCLA). Other Julia textbooks, tutorials and teaching resources are available at JuliaLang.org/Learning.
Julia for Space Mission Planning: Julia Language Ephemeris and Physical Constants Reader for Solar System Bodies was published by Professor Kaela M. Martin (Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University), undergraduates Julia Mihaylov and Renee Spear (Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University) and Damon Landau (National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology (Caltech)). This research “will help interplanetary space mission designers more easily locate the relative positions of planets, moons and small bodies in the solar system at specific times in order to calculate optimum spacecraft trajectories.”
Julia for School Bus Optimization: The Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences (INFORMS) has selected MIT Sloan Professor Dimitris Bertsimas, Arthur Delarue and Sebastien Martin as Franz Edelman award finalists for their use of Julia and JuMP.jl to make Boston Public Schools bus routes 20% more efficient and save $5 million per year which is being reinvested in schools.

About Julia and Julia Computing
Julia is the fastest high performance open source computing language for data, analytics, algorithmic trading, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other scientific and numeric computing applications. Julia solves the two language problem by combining the ease of use of Python and R with the speed of C++. Julia provides parallel computing capabilities out of the box and unlimited scalability with minimal effort. Julia has been downloaded more than 3 million times and is used at more than 1,500 universities. Julia co-creators are the winners of the 2019 James H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software. Julia has run at petascale on 650,000 cores with 1.3 million threads to analyze over 56 terabytes of data using Cori, one of the ten largest and most powerful supercomputers in the world.
Julia Computing was founded in 2015 by all the creators of Julia to develop products and provide professional services to businesses and researchers using Julia.
