The material here was used in the Julia tutorial at MIT IAP 2013. It contains the following:
LightningRoundis a rapid introduction to Julia, with a number of quick examples designed to give a feel for the language. The presentation and example codes are both included.
Visioncontains a presentation on the overall julia vision.
DataFramescontains a presentation on using the Julia DataFrames package, with a number of examples and exercises.
Statscontains a presentation on doing statistics with Julia.
GridOfResistorsis an exercise where the students compute the effective resistance in a grid of resistors, and highlights various performance characteristics and language features.
NumericalOptimizationis an exercise where students explore different types of parallelism in julia in the context of a numerical optimization problem.
