What a great idea. I have a bunch of ideas and successes to share but not enough time or patience to start a blog.

I design software that is written in c# for corporate reasons but I keep all of the algorithms also coded in Julia so that I don’t need to rely on professional developers to write experimental code for my research. Crazy thing is, my Julia code is shorter and faster than the c#.

Thanks for setting this up.

This looks like a great response to R's R-bloggers platform for consolidating articles on julia. I hope people are willing to do the "double publish" approach that is favored there, where articles show up directly on R-bloggers with a link to personal or company websites where it was also published (ensuring credit is given where credit is due).

Yes, double publishing is a core part of Forem, you can set the canonical link to ensure the SEO boost goes to the original post!

Excited about one day Julia-lang becoming more accepted in my industry’s workflow as a viable tool for simulation, analysis, and embedded algorithm development across the enterprise.

Where do we envision this sitting relative to discourse, slack, zulip, discord, etc?

Right in the Middle. Discourse is for Q/A about technical topics. Slack, Zulip, Discord are realtime chat. This is for writing content or the like about Julia.

This platform has a lot of the social features that Discourse lacks so sharing and writing content on Discourse is not really a great experience right now

My name is Heramb and I am a product manager with one of the leading tech publishers. I am here to discuss the endless possibilities that #JuliaLang brings to the Data Analytics and Data Engineering world and also seek some expert insights on creating the content that will help community adopt and use #JuliaLang effectively.

On LinkedIn you can take skill quizzes for different programming languages (like Python and R). A skill quiz for Julia is not available yet. Would be nice IMHO to promote Julia as well as your own skills. Are there plans to add Julia?

Hello! I’m excited for a platform where I can go for longer written pieces on Julia (eg. using huggingface in Julia). I hope it will encourage even more content

Now that I would love to see! Huggingface support, and also being able to write Julia in Databricks and ML Studio. If that happened, I would be able to move entirely to Julia.

Hello all. I am an engineer and new to Forem.

I'm looking for blog categories and tags, but I'm a little confused as to how things are categorized here.

A fun personal fact: I can get lost quite easily, even if the advent of portable GPS has improved things a bit.

let's see ... I am kinda used to and also like the R-blogger type of condensed "all blogs in one central place" style (same goes for Python-Bloggers).
But guess I can also adapt to this format since it looks familiar enough and has a few additional/new feats to it.
Btw - thanks for setting this up

Greetings, Walter
PS: shame on me - there is Julia Bloggers out there, but afaics it does not seem to be as active as the other two ... (last post there from May 27) doesn't matter I am already hooked on julia so I guess I'll be adding all the tools/channels as they come along anyway

Hi, I'm a PHP web dev. I have an interest in the general field of data science, perhaps a little more towards computer vision at the moment. I also have an interest in embedded systems which is somewhat connected with the computer vision.

I'm interested in Julia because it looks like it is designed for the domain of data science. I'm looking to learn the fundamentals of data science with the help of Julia.

I think data science will become an important tool for the advancement of society and I would like to become a part of that movement.

Hi, I'm Ronny.
I am a Mathematician, joined the NTNU Trondheim in Norway last year and I do β€œThings on Manifolds” - also numerically in Julia.

Actually, you, Logan, brought me here, and I would like to learn more about communication both of Julia stuff and Science in general.

A fun fact about myself? Hm. With the right clothes I am quite a fan of stormy and rainy weather actually.

Hi everyone. I'm fairly new to Julia but excited to use it in my teaching and research as an Economics Professor at Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo. My short term Julia related goal is to teach a course called 'Optimization for Economics and Data Science using Julia' this Fall to upper division Economics and Statistics students. The backbone of the class will be the superb book "Introduction to Applied Linear Algebra – Vectors, Matrices, and Least Squares" by Boyd and Vandenberghe, which comes with a Julia companion. Maybe after I'm done I can share how it all went in this forum.

I know this at heart: someday an article will read on one of the big media houses and it would say this: "JULIA: the programming language of the 21st century."

That is exactly what brought me here. Julia described in 6 words is: "I just can't stop loving Julia."

Folks, we are experimenting with the Forem platform. What do you think? It is built off of the same setup as dev.to. Would this fill a need in the Julia community?
