Lately I was reading about two languages that looks of high value:
Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for numerical computing. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library.
Syntax is some how easy similar to Python, and performance comparable to C.
systems programming language. won first place for "most loved programming language" in the Stack Overflow. It is designed to be a "safe, concurrent, practical language". Rust is syntactically similar to C++, but is designed for better memory safety while maintaining performance.
Based on that I could see that Julia could be of much value in developing Bioinformatics tools supporting both high performance and short developing time. also Rust could support better memory usage.
Do anyone have experience in either of these language?
Is it encouraged for beginners to learn Julia instead of Python?
Is there a possibility for bioinformaticians to migrate from Python to Julia?!
