The Davis Julia Users Group is a study group about learning to program in Julia, with specific focus on applications to data science and scientific computing. Community members from all disciplines and at all levels of experience are welcome! Prior programming experience in some other language will likely make learning easier, but isn’t required.

Beginning Fall Quarter 2022, we’ll read 1-2 sections of Julia Data Science or MIT’s Julia-based Intro to Computational Thinking course each week and meet for an informal discussion of what we learned. Once we finish those references, we’ll explore other references and case studies. Members can also volunteer to give short, informal presentations or lead discussions about specific topics and applications.

If you’re interested in participating, email naulle@ucdavis.edu.
