Statically Sized and Typed Data in Julia

I will describe my experience working with and developing highly efficient data structures in Julia which leverage statically known information - such as the type(s) contained in a collection, or the predetermined size of an array. Julia's combination of efficient code generation and metaprogramming capability make it an ideal language to implement data structures which are both convenient to program with and lightning fast in execution.plan to describe the various metaprogramming approaches which are useful for implementing containers of known size or having inhomogeneous elements - by using traits, pure functions, generated functions, macros and recursion. I will touch upon the successes and failures of packages like StaticArrays.jl, Switches.jl and TypedTables.jl, and hope to preview work on a more flexible yet strongly-typed tabular data structure than currently provided by TypedTables.

I currently work at Fugro Roames on the intersection of machine learning, geodesy and big data. Beginning with detailed, large-scale scans of the physical world, we deduce intelligence for our clients that would be expensive to acquire directly. Previously, I worked in academia as... Read More →
