Julia and Its Entities blog post


#1

Occasionally it seems that people are confused about Julia and some of the various groups that surround it, so I’ve written a blog post explaining and clarifying what some of these are:

Hopefully it helps answer questions people might have about the subject. If you’ve got questions or comments about this post, you can ask/post here.

Thanks, this is great!

How does Julia Computing fund itself and pay its employees? Is it mainly through donations or the via consulting services? You don’t have to answer this question if you don’t want to :slight_smile:

Nothing secretive about this answer. We have spoken about this in bits and pieces online on our blog and our website.

Julia Computing offers consulting services and training commercially. We also respond to RFPs for government contracts and competitive research grants. In addition, we have received funds from foundations - Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Going forward, we are focussing on a scalable product oriented business with JuliaTeam and JuliaRun, so that it is easy for companies to adopt Julia. A strong business will help make the Julia ecosystem stronger.
