Introduction to the Julia programming language
Material for the RWTH Julia workshop taking place on 17th and 18th February 2022. For more details check out the course website.
Software and material
What you need for the workshop (quick overview):
- Julia 1.8
- Jupyter and IJulia.jl
- This repository of workshop materials
- All required dependencies (Julia packages) for the workshop
For following the course you will need at least Julia 1.8. Julia can be easily obtained in binary form from Julia downloads.
Getting all the rest
To get the remaining files and dependencies
julia and in the resulting REPL shell,
copy and paste the following:
import Downloads script = Downloads.download("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mfherbst/2022-rwth-julia-workshop/master/install.jl") include(script)
This downloads the install.jl script and runs it from julia. Follow the instructions on the screen and start the Jupyter notebook server with the command that will be printed.
As an alternative you can also also run the following commands manually
(this requires to have
julia available from the commandline):
git clone https://github.com/mfherbst/2022-rwth-julia-workshop cd 2022-rwth-julia-workshop julia install-manual.jl
If you are facing issues, check out
the great troubleshooting section
from the WorkshopWizard package by Carsten Bauer (which
install.jl is using).
Check everything works
There is a section in the 00_Installation notebook with a few quick commands to check everything works as expected. Please run these before the course.
