Julia: A fresh approach to technical computing and data science

Julia is a new high performance, open source, dynamic language for technical computing and especially relevant for the upcoming field of data science. I will describe the rationale and the vision behind julia, key language features, and show some demos so that attendees can get a feel for the language. I will also discuss Julia's open source development process and the community that keeps adding amazing contributions at a rapid pace. Having done all my Julia work out of Bangalore, one of my personal objectives is also to grow the local Julia user and developer community.
