JuliaCon 2023

The Slack thread that would not die

A handful of Julians get nerdsniped into a ridiculous benchmarking spat with all the other languages.

After a 1000+ slack thread that defied numerical stability, common sense and message quotas, our intrepid Julians won nothing but a few lost days of productive heckling.

It was beautiful.


Nothing about this benchmark makes sense, but we all had a kick of fun participating in it.

Hopefully you will as well from this whimsical little gem of a corner of the Julia community.

I try to do physics, Julia, and Rust, both in english and in spanish.

Ask me about the REPL, spanish intensive Julia courses or for corporate trainings on how to learn Rust.
