The Julia programming language has been on my radar for years, and I write about it from time to time. However, the actual language event is JuliaCon, held in July 2022. All keynotes and sessions are available through Julia Lang Youtube Channel.

It is worth watching the Keynote by Jeremy Howard titled “What makes a programming language successful?” He addresses essential topics in Julia and shares his opinions on how to make it great. During the keynote, he compares Go with Julia, especially why Go is more popular than Julia, although they both share similar release history.

I still like the Julia language, but it seems the language will stay popular among Academicians only.
