In this series of liveProjects, you’ll get familiar with the highly intuitive—and popular—programming language Julia. First, you’ll use basic Julia tools, as well as some more advanced ones, to build a simple stock tracker for a shop. Next, you’ll join the fight against a fictional global pandemic by plotting and modeling the effectiveness of several measures. Lastly, you’ll help find a cure for a (fictional) global pandemic using Longest Common Subsequences (LCS), which measures the similarity between two sequences of characters. With these liveProjects, you’ll go from beginner-level to solving everyday, real-world problems using Julia.
Imagine that you’re a programmer hired by a shop to build a basic digital infrastructure. In this liveProject, you’ll use Julia to create a simple stock tracker that implements the four steps of the shopping process. You’ll start by building a structure for your shop, then you’ll write a function to manage inventory delivery as well as one to keep track of items sold. You’ll wrap up by creating a function to handle cash transactions. When you’re done, you’ll have hands-on experience using basic Julia tools including functions, arrays, and dictionaries, as well as more advanced tools such as multiple dispatch and composite types.
In this liveProject, your task is to help fight a (fictional) global pandemic. You’ll gain hands-on experience plotting in Julia as you estimate new cases per day. You'll understand the affect of several measures through plot-analysis and basic time-series forecasting. Finally, you'll deduce what the best measures are, determine and predict their effects, and report your findings to decision-makers.
In this liveProject, you’ll help find a cure for a (fictional) global pandemic by identifying the origin of the virus. Biologists have already narrowed the list of suspects down to three animal species. Longest Common Subsequences (LCS) can help you measure the similarity between two sequences. You'll use them to compare the animal sequences with the virus’ sequence. You'll get a sense of what percentage of the sequences should be common versus what is actually common between the sequences studied, then you'll be able to identify the virus’ origin based on your findings.
This liveProject series is for programmers ranging from beginner to advanced who want to learn about Julia, how to use it, and why it’s so popular. To begin these liveProjects you'll need to be familiar with the following:
In this liveProject series, you’ll learn tools and skills that will take you from beginner-level to solving everyday, real-world problems using Julia.
