We have a meetup next week in Zurich, where I give a talk and hands-on intro to Julia:
(make sure you read the instructions before coming)
I suspect this might be less interesting to people on this forum as most are Julia users already. But if you are new-ish, there will be some interesting bits.
PS: it looks like this will be our most popular meetup to date with already 9 people signed up. Record thus far was six, I believe.
