How is the adoption of Julia at MIT?

My personal understanding is that Julia has a deep root at MIT. Are there a lot of guys at MIT converting to Julia from other languages? Just curious about that.

There’s enough people that you can no longer keep track of who’s using Julia and when walking into a room you can expect there’s some Julia users in there. Still not the majority, but not a rare sight.

This demonstrates a clear need for a complicated secret handshake, so that Julia users can readily recognize each other.

Not in these corona times!

A secret elbow bump, or a small dance would be safer: https://media1.tenor.com/images/751698c3e76b76f6096b0c1d2c43903b/tenor.gif?itemid=17008437

Maybe the guys from https://youtu.be/ywWBy6J5gz8 could be hired to develop a secret hello-fellow-Julian dance?

On the condition that we don’t have to wear traditional Hungarian folk costumes to Julia events.

Those things are heavy, and don’t have nearly enough pockets (I am speaking from experience).

Jokes aside. I remember there used to be a webpage about Julia’s usage in the classroom on the Julia website. I could not find it anymore.

See the bottom of the page here:
