Learning more about Julia is one of the many things I attempt to do in 2019 😄. Few weeks ago, I installed Julia 1.0.0 using the GitHub repository and I decided to checkout how easy it would be to upgrade to the version to v1.1.0-rc1 (note that “rc” stands for release candidate). It was quite easy, all I had to do was:
git checkout master git pull git checkout v1.1.0-rc1 make
1h13min42sec latter, julia 1.1 was installed.
Ok, so I know how to install, update and launch julia, so now I just have to learn everything else 😄. In the latest newsletter, there is a reference to Julia a fresh approach to computing (2017)* by the creators of Julia, I guess I’ll start with reading this!
