Scientific Swift (talk)


(Matthijs) #1

Here’s a great talk by my online friend hyperjeff about using Swift for scientific programming, notably the fact that using emoji can make code look very natural in the domain of math-based problems: https://www.dotconferences.com/2019/01/jeff-biggus-scientific-swift

It would be cool to take advantage of these Swift features.

Yeah, that’s a great talk. He goes a bit overboard with unicode which could be off-putting for some people, but it’s a great example of the sorts of things you can do with Swift that few people realize.

This is one of the most exciting things I have seen in so long! I’m an old school scientific programmer and now a beginner in Swift. This talk perfectly sits on the intersection and makes me want to explore the language even more.

Thank you for sharing it.
