This 4-day course introduces the Julia programming language as a modern approach to high-performance numerical computing. Starting from the foundations and characteristic language features (e.g. multiple dispatch, type inference) the course will discuss and demonstrate how Julia manages to deliver high performance while also being high-level and dynamic. It will teach participants the necessary language concepts to achieve high performance in Julia and avoid common pitfalls. The course will cover "serial" and parallel computing (multithreading, distributed computing, MPI) and will provide insights into how to readily offload computations to NVIDIA GPUs.
Hands-on sessions on each day will allow the participants to interactively explore the language and immediately test and apply the discussed concepts.
This course is especially appropriate for you if

Besides the content of the training itself, another important aspect of this event is the scientific exchange among the participants. We try to facilitate such communication by
For your safety, we will only allow fully vaccinated or fully recovered or COVID-19 negative tested participants on all days. You must wear a medical face mask or FFP2 mask everywhere on site. If a distance of 1.5 m cannot be guaranteed inside, e.g., if you are working in pairs in exercises, it must be an FFP2 mask. Details can be found on the registration page.
We strongly recommend to choose travel options and hotels with the possibility to cancel (even close to the event) because we might be forced to deliver the course as an online course.
Register via the button at the top of this page. We encourage you to register to the waiting list if the course is full. Places might become available.
