Many people looking at Julia are coming from Python, and already have a sizable codebase.
Our fund started rewriting performance-critical parts of our Python codebase in Julia, getting 10x-30x speedups. I'll go over how to start migrating Python code to Julia using PyCall and PyJulia, some gotchas to avoid, and where you're likely to see the biggest benefits.
