Announcements

16.06.2017

We decided at the last meeting to pause our regular bi-monthly meet-up in the event that we're presenting at PyData Berlin, 2017. Since we've been selected as a workshop, and Hector is giving a talk on his Shearlets toolbox, we'll be breaking for the summer.

22.03.2017

Our next meet-up will take place at 7pm on April 24th. Robert will present an overview of optimisation tools which fall under the JuliaOpt umbrella. He will go into detail on JuMP, a package to which he is a contributor.

30.01.2017

We've changed the date of our next meet-up due to an unforseen schedule clash. It will now take place at 7pm on February 27th. Hector will still be talking about using Julia for mathematical applications, presenting his Julia packages for Wavelets and Shearlets in a talk entitled Filter-based implementation of Fast Wavelet and Shearlet transform in Julia. Other topic on the agenda include discussing our plans for hosting an Introduction to Julia workshop aimed at numerically literate users and maybe an informal discussion of using OpenCL in Julia.

09.01.2017

Our next meet-up will be held at 7pm on February 21st. Hector will be talking about using Julia for mathematical applications, in a talk entitled Filter-based implementation of Fast Wavelet and Shearlet transform in Julia. We will also discuss our plans for hosting an Introduction to Julia workshop aimed at numerically literate users.

06.01.2017

We're procrastinating every so slightly on organising the exact date of the next meet-up. Most of the organising crew are abroad during this period. But it will be roughly at the end of January / beginning of February and the topic will be some mathematical applications of Julia by Hector.

16.11.2016

Our next meet-up will be held at 7pm on December 6th. We'll be talking about GLVisualize (Simon), Molcajete.jl a program which Cristina wrote for accessing the Meet-up API, and plans for hosting an introduction to Julia workshop.

15.09.2016

Our next meet-up will be held at 7pm on October 13th. Robert will present the Plots package and Vinny has some machine learning applications and embedding in a dashboard.

04.07.2016

Our next meet-up will be held at 7pm on August 18th. David will present some code for a neuronal network simulator and see what design choices were enforced/enabled by the use of Julia.

11.06.2016

At the last meetup, we decided to hold bi-monthly meetups. The next one will be held on August 18th!

30.05.2016

Our next meet-up will take place at St. Oberholz on Thursday June 9th at 7pm. Visiting will be Miles Lubin who co-wrote the JuMP library and helped to setup JuliaOpt as a centre for high-quality optimisation using Julia. The main topics of the night will be (i) Julia [I'm guessing focussing on Optimisation techniques this week] and (ii) the basic format of the users group meet-ups.

Please come along if you're interested in having future Julia meet-up events in Berlin. We need to gauge the level of interest. You can follow any organisational changes in this thread on google groups

History

Julia Users Group - Berlin had its first get together in 2015. The discussion organising the first meetup can be found on the Julia Users Google group forum.

Following the recent PyData conference in Berlin a lot of interest was expressed in meeting more regularly to discuss Julia-related topics. This webpage now exists to coordinate and announce Julia events and meetups in Berlin.

Inclusiveness statement

It seems unfortunate to have to make this statement but the computing world is not always know for its inclusivity or diversity. We are commited to welcoming anyone who is interested in joining our meet-up and will do our best to learn to communicate with them in a manner which makes them feel a full member of our community without the barriers of rank, background, gender, colour or other distinction.
