Keno shares stories behind the creation of the popular programming language Julia, as well as the development of the community and spin-off company Julia Computing over the past years with the rise of machine learning.

Julia is a modern open-source language for data science, machine learning and scientific computing that has gained increasing attention. It combines the functionality of quantitative environments such as R and Python with the speed of production programming languages like Java and C++ to solve big data and analytics problems. It has been downloaded over 3 million times and adopted by numerous enterprises, research institutes and financial organizations.
