Curious about JuliaCon2024

Just curious, as an undergraduate, new to Julia. How should I go about this event online? And hopefully, getting inspiration or opportunities

A background of myself: Having a Bachelor of system engineering . Trying to translate what I have learnt in “The Analytic Edge” or Machine Learning into Julia (from R or python). Exploring Agent-based modelling. I am currently occupied with ComputationalThinking@MIT course , Agent-based modelling and Practical Julia book.

All the videos will be posted to the Julia Youtube channel. There is some delay in that process usually (I’m not a coordinator, so I don’t know the process this year).

Like @mrufsvold said. Just to set expectations, JuliaCon isn’t a hybrid conference.

Great, welcome to the community! From what you want to do, I think Julia is a great choice.

Note also that you don’t have to wait, there are a lot of videos from previous years, meant of which are still relevant.

As others have said, this is not really an online conference. There will be some online streaming outlets, but it is pretty difficult trying to manage both online and in-person components at the same time. The organizers are primarily concentrating on the in-person aspects.

This year’s in-person conference is Eindhoven, the Netherlands. If you are in or near that time zone, it might be useful to tag along live and try to ask questions here or on Slack.

I just got word that PyData Global 2024 is going ahead, probably towards the end of this year. I have a loose idea that perhaps we should tag a JuliaCon Online conference onto that, but a lot more work needs to be done in that direction.

Thanks for the information. I’m totally not anywhere in that timezone or region.

Well… I shall just wait for a summary.
