Getting started with Julia and Machine Learning
Anthony Blaom, Samuel

A three-hour introductory workshop for newcomers to Julia and machine
learning. Participants will have training in some technical domain,
for example, in science, economics or engineering. While no prior
experience with Julia or machine learning is needed, it is assumed
participants have Julia 1.7 installed on their computer.
