Introduction to Julia for Data Science Short course @ MIT, January 16-19, 2024

There will by a short 4-day Julia course at the MIT campus in Boston “Introduction to Julia for Data Science” - this is a for-credit class at MIT Mathematics (IAP 2024 Classes).

The course instructors have experience both in academia and industry so expect an intensive hands-on class with several practical and useful examples.

Course schedule (all times EST):

  • Day 1 (Tuesday, Jan 16, 2024)
    11:00-12:30 Your first steps with Julia
    13:00-15:00 Working with tabular data
  • Day 2 (Wednesday, Jan 17, 2024)
    11:00-12:30 Classical predictive models
    13:00-15:00 Advanced predictive models using machine learning
  • Day 3 (Thursday, Jan 18, 2024)
    11:00-12:30 Numerical methods
    13:00-15:00 Solving optimization problems
  • Day 4 (Friday, Jan 19, 2024)
    11:00-12:30 Differential equations
    13:00-15:00 Scaling computations using parallel computing

The course is organized by Alan Edelman and Przemysław Szufel.
Instructors: Michał Bernardelli, Łukasz Kraiński, Julian Samaroo, Przemysław Szufel, Bartosz Witkowski

During my visit to Boston I will be working with Julian Samaroo (@jpsamaroo) on tools for distributed processing of graphs. If anyone wants to talk on that subject or something else and wants to meet, let me know.

For people wishing to join who cannot attend MIT in person at that time we are planning an online streaming via MS Teams. People wishing to get an access to the stream should simply fill-in the form

The course materials will be published at: GitHub - pszufe/2024_MIT_18.S097_Introduction-to-Julia-for-Data-Science

Is this still planned? I filled out the form a while ago but didn’t receive any confirmation so couldn’t be sure.

Dear @Wispy Thanks for registering.
We will be sending the links to the MS Teams stream via email at the beginning of each day of the course. Hence you will get your link for the stream tomorrow.


The invitations with links to MS Teams stream have been sent out. Should someone still need a link and did not receive it due to some technical reasons (maybe invitations got to spam, email was wrongly typed etc.) please email Lukasz Krainski and he will send you the link

Thank you so much for the great sessions. Could you please provide the link to the recorded sessions?

@Shayan Some YouTube links have been just added to the course website at GitHub, the rest will come soon.


Thank you so much.

Were these recorded? Is this something we could post online to the Julia YouTube?

Yes, see the GitHub link at the first post of this thread.
On the course website, next to each agenda item there are YouTube links
Not all recordings have been uploaded yet but most are.

Would you mind if we work on re-uploading them to the Julia Language YouTube? We tend to see a lot of engagement with our course uploads. Previous MIT courses are still our most watched videos every day.


Of course! sure! any help in promotion is appreciated. Just please provide the GitHub links in a well visible place so people can easily find Jupyter notebooks for the classes.
