Julia Programming Language:-

Julia is a high-level, high-performance, dynamic programming language. This language started in 2009 by Jeff Bezanson, Stefan Karpinski, Viral B. Shah, and Alan Edelman. In 2012, Julia was officially launched on the internet, And it grows up to 13,000,000 downloads. Julia Language implemented in three languages C, C++, Scheme, LLVM. Now talking about its usage

Usage:-

  1. Machine Learning
  2. Computational Biology
  3. Statistics
  4. Image Processing
  5. Physics

Reason Why Julia is Great?

  1. Speed, Performance
  2. Easy to Use
  3. Open Source
  4. Solves two language problem

Do companies use Julia?

  1. NVIDIA:-

Worldwide company NVIDIA is also using Julia Language Nowadays. They announced that “The availability of the Julia programming language as a pre-packaged container on the NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) container registry with NVIDIA stating Easily Deploy Julia on x86 and Arm Julia offers a package for a comprehensive HPC ecosystem covering machine learning, data science, various scientific domains, and visualization”.

2. NASA:-

Yes, NASA is also using Julia language for there scientific calculations. Majorly they are working with three languages Julia, Python, C++.

Python Programming Language:-

As you are knowing that Python is very popular in today’s scenario. Basically this language is made for the kids. So they can understand the programming well. But Nowadays this language is very popular. FAANG(Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Alphabet-Google) is also using this programming language nowadays.

This language is used by these companies because If they use this language there program’s LOC(Line Of Code) is less than JAVA.

Usage:-

  1. Web Development
  2. Data Science
  3. Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence
  4. Neural Network
  5. RPA (Robotic Process Automation)
  6. Game Development
  7. Desktop GUI

Reasons for Choosing Python:-

  1. Compactible with Major System
  2. Robust Library
  3. Simplify Software Development
  4. Open-Source Framework

But in the end I will say that both programming languages are best. Because Julia can do the Task that Python can’t and Python can do the task which Julia can’t. So every language is useful for the companies to achieve their goal.
