Even now, I’m not very consistent, some days are great, other days I struggle. I’m still working on and refining things. Dwight Howard jumping like Su

Is Julia the next thing for Data Science?

TLDR: I’m not going to learn Julia yet, but I am interested in seeing what happens with the community and the data science ecosystem, please let me know if you agree/ disagree. Julia version 1.0 released On 8th August 2018 a version 1.0 of the Julia programming language was released.
