Advanced Julia Programming and Parallel Computing


Course Number: JUL-104

Duration: 2 days (13 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

Advanced Julia Training Overview

This Advanced Julia training course teaches attendees how to leverage the power of the Julia language to manage challenging computational jobs. Students learn how to harness Julia's robust compilation processes and how to scale across many threads, GPUs, processes, and machines.

Location and Pricing

This course is taught as a private, live online class for teams of 3 or more. All our courses are hands-on, instructor-led, and tailored to fit your group’s goals and needs. Most Accelebrate classes can be flexibly scheduled for your group, including delivery in half-day segments across a week or set of weeks.
