@znmeb @peat maybe, but even there are still some sharp edges, I think Julia shows a lot of promise.@znmeb @peat oh, that's pretty recent. Should be OK to use that (pretty sure that's what I'm running on the Centos machine at work)@znmeb @peat ... Build from source (clone from github) is easy as it downloads dependencies ( on Ubuntu, anyway)@znmeb @peat may be in Fedora, but I'd recommend using a more recent release cuz its still fast moving- 0.3.6 seems to be latest release ver@znmeb @peat I'm using a Julia ML package called Mocha.jl that definitely looks like it was written by a C++ developer.@znmeb @peat also Julia style is definitely still being developed due to still smallish community.@znmeb @peat Been using Julia for some ML stuff at work. Pretty nice& performance is good, but definitely still sharp edges...Health Experts Recommend Standing Up At Desk, Leaving Office, Never Coming Back http://t.co/JIgbX6X3mZ http://t.co/ibZ250t166
