Julia programming language

Julia is an unusual language. It is based around the idea of "eating your cake and having it too, again and again". Flexible and very fast at the same time, friendly readable syntax and Lisp-strength macros and multiple dispatch, etc:

Julia Flux is trying to become the next generation machine learning framework, and is also characterized by this approach of "eating your cake and having it too". If TensorFlow 1.0 is the past, and PyTorch is the leading state-of-the-art framework of the present, Julia Flux is quite likely to become the machine learning framework of the future; see the first comment in this blog post for details:

Does anyone here use Julia, or does anyone here knows someone who uses Julia?
