Sell-Side Technology deputy editor Dan DeFrancesco and WatersTechnology US editor Anthony Malakian record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.
Anthony is joined by Viral Shah, Jeff Bezanson and Stefan Karpinski, three of the creators of the Julia programming language (4:50). They discuss what type of questions were brought up at Julia Day for Finance (10:00), which was held Wednesday in New York, and what should and shouldn't be expected for the release of Julia 1.0 (14:10). Anthony then asks the trio about concerns some have brought up about the language regarding its maturity (16:22) and the chance that other languages such as Python or R could eventually offer similar speeds as Julia (20:15). He also asks how Julia will aim to help firms weed through the massive amounts of data they are dealing with (23:55) and if the programming language can be used as a recruiting tool for attracting young programmers (28:45). Finally, the founders discuss use cases for Julia outside of finance and economics (31:45).
