商品描述

Learn the awesome Julia programming language by building fun projects like a rocket launcher, a password keeper, and a battle simulator.

Julia as a Second Language covers:

  • Data types like numbers, strings, arrays, and dictionaries
  • Immediate feedback with Julia's read-evaluate-print-loop (REPL)
  • Simplify code interactions with multiple dispatch
  • Sharing code using modules and packages
  • Object-oriented and functional programming styles

Julia as a Second Language introduces Julia to readers with a beginning-level knowledge of another language like Python or JavaScript. You'll learn by coding engaging hands-on projects that encourage you to apply what you're learning immediately. Don't be put off by Julia's reputation as a scientific programming language--there's no data science or numerical computing knowledge required. You can get started with what you learned in high school math classes.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

Originally designed for high-performance data science, Julia has become an awesome general purpose programming language. It offers developer-friendly features like garbage collection, dynamic typing, and a flexible approach to concurrency and distributed computing. It is the perfect mix of simplicity, flexibility and performance.

About the Book

Julia as a Second Language introduces Julia by building on your existing programming knowledge. You'll see Julia in action as you create a series of interesting projects that guide you from Julia's basic syntax through its advanced features. Master types and data structures as you model a rocket launch. Use dictionaries to interpret Roman numerals. Use Julia's unique multiple dispatch feature to send knights and archers into a simulated battle. Along the way, you'll even compare the object-oriented and functional programming styles-Julia supports both!

What's Inside

  • Data types like numbers, strings, arrays, and dictionaries
  • Immediate feedback with Julia's read-evaluate-print-loop (REPL)
  • Simplify code interactions with multiple dispatch
  • Share code using modules and packages

About the Reader

For readers comfortable with another programming language like Python, JavaScript, or C#.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

透過建立有趣的專案,如火箭發射器、密碼保管箱和戰鬥模擬器,來學習令人驚艷的Julia程式語言。《Julia as a Second Language》涵蓋以下內容:
- 數字、字串、陣列和字典等資料類型
- 利用Julia的讀取-評估-列印-循環(REPL)獲得即時回饋
- 使用多重分派簡化程式碼互動
- 利用模組和套件分享程式碼
- 物件導向和函數式程式設計風格

《Julia as a Second Language》將Julia介紹給已具備Python或JavaScript等其他程式語言初級知識的讀者。你將通過編寫引人入勝的實踐專案來學習,並立即應用所學。不要被Julia作為科學程式語言的聲譽所嚇到,無需具備數據科學或數值計算知識,你可以從高中數學課程中學到的知識開始入門。

購買印刷版書籍還包括Manning Publications提供的PDF、Kindle和ePub格式的免費電子書。

關於技術:
最初設計用於高性能數據科學,Julia已成為一個令人驚艷的通用程式語言。它提供開發人員友好的功能,如垃圾回收、動態類型和靈活的並行和分散計算方法。它是簡單性、靈活性和性能的完美結合。

關於本書:
《Julia as a Second Language》通過構建現有程式語言知識的基礎上引入Julia。您將在創建一系列有趣的專案中看到Julia的實際應用,從基本語法到高級功能。在模擬火箭發射時掌握類型和資料結構。使用字典解讀羅馬數字。利用Julia獨特的多重分派功能將騎士和弓箭手送入模擬戰鬥。在此過程中,您甚至可以比較面向對象和函數式程式設計風格 - Julia支持兩者!
