I am new to Julia and tried the sample Jupyter notebooks on:
I could not get them to work as the code failed. As this is likely where new users go, its not a welcoming experience and has made me think of just using R!
I would like to use EconDatasets.jl which give a rave review for Julia:
The first code given here is wrong:
"Pkg.add(“EconDatasetsing EconDatasets” (sic)
The notebook is not given but the code is and I got the odd result that what seems to be a date range has ":day " stuck in the middle see below which fails in Juila. See several blocks down at:
dates = Date(1960,1,1):Date(2014,7,20)
[OUT] 1960-01-01:1 day:2014-07-20
Here are some of the other errors:
WARNING: requiring “Dates” in module “Main” did not define a corresponding module.
Please could you run this code and tell me what I need to do. I think that usch bugs are a turn-off and now wish I hadnt bothered.
