Julia is a modern high-level programming language which is both fast (on par with traditional HPC languages like Fortran and C) and relatively easy to write like Python or Matlab.
want to give a flavor of Julia's features and capabilities for high-performance computing (HPC) covered in the workshop lesson material by presenting a demonstration on how to benchmark, optimize, parallelize and GPU-port a simple toy problem.
Julia is a free and open-source programming language designed from the ground up to offer high performance while being simple to write.
