October 2016 has seen the launch of my second course on the Coursera massive open online course (MOOC) platform. Whereas my first course dealt with the statistics used in healthcare research, this one teaches the new Julia language for scientific computing. You can find it here.
As with other Coursera offerings, you can pay a nominal fee to get a verified certificate from the University of Cape Town, else you can audit the course for free. Remember, though, that it is always possible to state that you do not have the financial resources to pay for the verified certificate and Coursera will waive the fee and you will still get your certificate.
You can also learn more about Julia from their home page. Let me know what you think.
Before I forget, the Jupyter notebooks for the course are available on GitHub.
