To tell someone that Julia is as easy as python, and then tell them sorry, but you also need to understand numerical precision (this isn’t really all that much to ask, but it feels like the statement “understand the tool” implies more than knowledge of a single aspect)… is a bit of a stretch. Julia is fairly easy, but this caught me offguard and I think it will get alot of people.
You can’t advertise in a way that is meant to appeal to naive scientists, and then scoff at them when they don’t understand things typical of a computer science degree. If you want to have the word “easy to use” you need to make it easy to use. And my hat is off to Julia it is very nice (I am pro Julia). I just think it could use some sort of flag on this aspect.
I didn’t mean to upset anyone with my ignorance, and I have learned alot.
