Let me introduce myself, I’m Praveen V - Studying 4th year masters in India. I have been following julia lang quite some time. I interested in contributing to julia lang. I’m hoping to participate in GSoC 2019 with julia. I interested in compiler optimizations, HPC and meta programming and I’m quite new to julia and it’s runtime. Could you please help me in getting started with julia and it’s compiler?
I’m familiar with C++, Python and I have deep interest in llvm and high performance computing.
I have personally learned a lot about Julia from the excellent talks at JuliaCon over the past few years. You might find them interesting and informative as well. Here are a few that might help you understand a bit more about how Julia works and how best to use (and improve!) it:
- JuliaCon 2017 | AoT or JIT: How Does Julia Work? | Jameson Nash
- JuliaCon 2018 | A practical introduction to metaprogramming in Julia | Andy Ferris
- An introduction to high performance custom arrays | Matt Bauman
- JuliaCon 2018 | Cassette: Dynamic, Context-Specific Compiler Pass Injection for Julia | J Revels
I will go through those talks
