Hi all,

We’re organizing a Julia user meetup at Ghent University, Belgium, on the 21st of December. There will be multiple talks, and a reception afterwards for a chance to socialize with fellow Julia users and developers. The schedule is not yet finalized, but please mark your attendance if you’re interested in this event at https://www.meetup.com/BeNeLux-Julia-User-Group/events/254445081

If you want to give a presentation at this event, please send me a message before the end of September.

You guys can run meetups so close to Christmas! I did once in Sydney and only 4 people turned up.


#4

Many people living in other countries return to see family for the holidays, so it is quite common to do this.

Meet-up was a great success! Here are some materials/slides from today’s talks:

Very nice GPU slides! The composability with DistributedArrays is mind-blowing!
