Check out the installation page on this website which was copied from the MIT course Computational Thinking, or just watch the following video to learn how to set up Julia and Pluto – two pieces of software you will need to run the course materials on your own computer.
We used several Pluto.jl notebooks in this lecture. Here are three rendered ones:
|Variables||click for notebook|
|Functions||click for notebook|
|Arrays||click for notebook|
|SIR Model||click for notebook|
Please run the 01-fast.jl notebook on your own computer for the benchmarks! 🏎️
In this section we want to understand why julia is a good choice for computational tasks - for Economists and others.
