Dave Jones :: Julia

Local software developer, Dave Jones, will evaluate the Julia programming language against Python for use in numerical computing. Julia is an exciting new programming language for numerical work and general programming that has garnered much attention. At this month’s software developers cartel, Dave will discuss how he evaluates programming languages. Along the way, we’ll learn a bit about the Julia language, and, as an added bonus, we will run some simple epidemiology models in both Julia and Python/NumPy and discuss some things the general public should know about epidemiology models during the COVID-19 crisis. There should be something for everyone in this presentation — Julia, Python, software performance evaluations and COVID-19 modeling.

Dave has more than twenty five years of professional experience in programming, software design and general consulting – working with languages ranging from 4GLs to “ones and zeros”, and working with machines ranging from mainframes to embedded systems. Dave presently works as a software developer, researcher and consultant at Knowledge Based Systems, a nationwide consulting firm headquartered in College Station, Texas.
