This four-module course introduces users to Julia as a first language. Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language developed specifically for scientific computing. This language will be particularly useful for applications in physics, chemistry, astronomy, engineering, data science, bioinformatics and many more. As open source software, you will always have it available throughout your working life. It can also be used from the command line, program files or a new type of interface known as a Jupyter notebook (which is freely available as a service from JuliaBox.com).

TOP REVIEWS FROM JULIA SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMMING
The course is awesome! I could learn much more than I expected about the Julia Language! I liked also the different contexts and applications shown in the course!
Good introductory course to Julia programming language, explains well it's advantages, basic syntax. Looking forward towards intermediate level course.
It was very exciting. I widen further, my computing horizons
Hope, that the university will launch in the near future, a more advanced course of "Julia Scientific Programming"
A clear and well presented course.
Suitable for newcomers and relatively new users of Julia. The course notes (Jupyter notebooks) are a useful reference after the course.
