Who is this class for: This course is for anyone wanting to learn how to use Julia for data analysis. This includes data scientists, engineers, mathematical modelling and students looking for new tools to work with data. Recommended Background A knowledge of high school mathematics is a basic requirement. While the class is designed for students with limited programming experience, some beginner programmers may find the class quite fast-paced. We recommend you work through the material slower, never forgetting that the only way to learn a language is to use it. We use Jupyter notebooks for the course and we encourage you to experiment with the notebooks we have created. For those of you who have done programming and want to get a taste of this language, you should be able to move through the material fast.

Very good Intro to Julia with interesting practice problems.

I enjoyed this course very much and with it being the only available Julia course I was surprised it was still quality.

This course is more like a lesson for data science, most of them are organized for plotting curve and making diagrams. This is good. But I was expected a more detailed lesson toward Julia itself.

I love this course especially honor cert
