Julia 1.0 Lectures Released
4 Dec 2018
As part of the move to Julia 1.0, QuantEcon lectures in Julia have been significantly revised and are now co-authored with Jesse Perla at the University of British Columbia. QuantEcon welcomes Jesse and his team to the project, and is excited about the changes on the Julia side.
- The addition of many new lectures, for example on version control with GitHub and generic programming in Julia.
- An update to the Julia cheatsheet.
- The creation and use of new QuantEcon packages, such as Expectations.jl and InstantiateFromURL.jl.
- The integration (and development) of outside packages such as Parameters.jl, NLsolve.jl, and Optim.jl, which we used to write clearer and faster code.
- An overhaul of the infrastructure used to build and deliver the lectures.
We are thankful to Arnav Sood, and Jose Calderon for their work on the content side, and Matt McKay for the build infrastructure. Also thanks to Kaan Yolsever, Adam Jozefiak, Xiaojun Guan and Pooya Ravari for their research assistance on this project.
