Previously, he completed a postdoc in Computational Genetics at UCLA and taught Computer Science at the Naval Postgraduate School. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois. Kevin has been interested in Julia since its first public release and was an early contributor to the language.
PackageCompiler.jl has become the de facto method for creating standalone Julia applications. In this talk, we will demonstrate the use of
PackageCompiler.jl to produce shared library bundles. This functionality was added recently and allows the easy creation of location-independent dynamic libraries which can be linked to and called from C, C++, Rust, or other languages which can link to and use C libraries.
The ability to create shared library bundles was recently added to
PackageCompiler.jl. In this talk, we will discuss the technical details of the implementation and give in-depth examples of using the resulting shared library bundles from C and Rust.
