Julia, a Fresh Approach to Technical Computing, 10 years later

    The Julia community celebrated the 10th anniversary of ‘Why We Created Julia’, the announcement that introduced Julia to the world on February 14, 2012. This celebration includes a new retrospective, ‘Why We Use Julia, Ten Years Later’. One hundred Julia users from fields as diverse as data science, finance, robotics, pharmaceuticals, neuroscience, entomology, quantum physics, astronomy, environmental science and energy each contributed a short paragraph (or more) about how they came to use Julia, why they use Julia to replace Python, C, C++, Fortran, MATLAB, SAS and R, what they have accomplished using Julia and why they continue to love the language.
    In this talk, we will illustrate some of the aspects of Julia we find most interesting, and explain why the best is yet to come.
