You should use Julia over Python because of the JIT compilation makes it faster, as long as you aren’t constantly writing code and running it a single time. Also as long as you are able to keep your REPL open for days at a time. It takes several minutes to load some popular plotting packages in Julia (because of the JIT), so it will take you some time to adjust your workflow to leaving your REPL open all the time.

But the Juno IDE is just as good as Jupyter notebooks or RStudio, and there are probably high quality libraries for whatever you’re doing, unless you work in one of those niche areas.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
