Julia syntax features

In one of my last posts I already tried to point out some advantages of Julia. Two of the main arguments are quite easily made: Julia is comparatively fast and free and open source. In addition, however, Julia also has a very powerful and expressive syntax compared to other programming languages, but this advantage is maybe less obvious to understand. Hence, I recently gave a short talk where I tried to extend a little bit on this point, while simultaneously also showing some of the convenient publishing feature of the IJulia backend. I thought I’d just share the outcome with you, just in case that anyone else could use the slides to convince some people of Julia’s powerful syntax. In addition to the slides, you can also access the presentation rendered as ijulia notebook here.
