I started using Julia when I began as a Software Engineering Intern at NASA. Since then, I have gone on to Intern with Julia Computing on the PumasAI project, win a new Julia Language contributor award for 2019, and authored a few small packages. The Julia programming language and community are incredible. I am looking forward to helping more in the future.
I've been programming for 47 years, always focusing on performance. I love learning both computer and human languages, my favorites are Scheme, CLU, and now Julia. I respect C as a great tool over the years, now I want to learn Rust to complement Julia, which I've been using 100% of the time (professionally & developing open source packages) for over 5 years, since version 0.3. I am the creator of the JuliaString.org GitHub organization
Co-founder and Chief Scientist of TriScale innov, a startup dedicated to technical and scientific computing. I have been using Julia routinely for the past few years, and try to contribute back by being involved in the development of a few packages.
