Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library. Julia’s Base library, largely written in Julia itself, also integrates mature, best-of-breed open source C and Fortran libraries for linear algebra, random number generation, signal processing, and string processing. In addition, the Julia developer community is contributing a number of external packages through Julia’s built-in package manager at a rapid pace. IJulia, a collaboration between the IPython and Julia communities, provides a powerful browser-based graphical notebook interface to Julia.

Additional Information

If you encounter an SSL certificate issue when installing a Julia package with Pkg you can work around the issue by adding an 'insecure' line to the curl initialization file ~/.curlrc file. Do this if you trust the package source. E.g.

$ echo 'insecure' >> ~/.curlrc

Julia installs packages to your home directory. This means that all of the packages are manual self installs. Follow the basic Julia installation steps
