I’m going to give a talk to students with experience in Python and R about the advantages of Julia. I already have most of the talk but would like to have an argument related to existing Julia packages.
I know Julia is young and doesn’t have as many packages as Python. However, I think a good argument could be that there are things that are difficult to do in other languages, for instance because there is no suitable package. For example, Jupyter notebooks can be used in both Python and R, but only Julia has Pluto.
Are there more examples of Julia packages with no equivalent in other languages? Other ideas on the advantages of Julia packages are welcome. (:
