Julia Co-Creators Receive James H. Wilkinson Prize: Julia co-creators Jeff Bezanson, Stefan Karpinski and Viral Shah Received the James H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software at the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE19). Jeff, Stefan and Viral delivered a talk titled ‘Solving the Two Language Problem in Numerical Computing’.

JuliaTeam Vision: Stefan Karpinski published a blog post about Julia Computing’s vision for JuliaTeam. JuliaTeam is an enterprise solution that makes it as easy to use and develop Julia packages inside your company as it is in the open source world. JuliaTeam integrates with your corporate authentication systems and eliminates the headaches of installing and using public Julia packages behind a corporate firewall. JuliaTeam also gives IT and management insight and control over what packages developers are using, helping ensure quality and security.

Upcoming JuliaTeam releases will include these features as well:

  • Read and search docs for all internal and external packages in a single place

  • Create and manage private package registries

  • Publish and test private packages as easily as public ones, making sure new versions work seamlessly with all the other versions of packages that your teams are using

  • Benchmark your code to make sure it runs as efficiently as possible and stays fast

  • Download a summary of licenses of all the software you depend on

JuliaTeam makes Julia development at your company as easy, effective and fun as open source.

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.
