My goal for this project is to learn Julia, particularly how to structure programs, work with the type system, and optimize code.
This game uses a rectangular board that wraps along the edges and the "standard" Game of Life rules:
- Living cells stay alive if they have 2-3 live neighbors
- Dead cells reinvigorate if they have 3 live neighbors
Running the Simulation
If you haven't installed Julia, do that first.
After that, run the
main program from the root project folder:
- Write a basic Game of Life
- Add tests
- Allow for different board manifolds
- Allow for different rules sets
- Game of Life creatures DSL
- Benchmark code
