Ladda ner (mp3)

We chat with Stefan Karpinski, creator of the Julia programming language, live on stage during Øredev 2014. Topics include deciding to build a new language, the interesting unsolved problems of numerical computing, concurrency solutions, developing with and on LLVM, handling deprecation nicely, things (possibly) in the future for Julia and why Swift is exciting for Julia and other languages.
