The programming language Julia has entered the coveted top 20 of the TIOBE Index for the first time. The historic accomplishment represents a significant turning point for Julia, a programming language that has been around for just over ten years.
Julia is known for its uses in data science and mathematical computation, but the fact that it made the top 20 begs the question of what makes it special and whether it can stand up to more seasoned competitors. There are valid reasons for Julia’s quick rise to the top of the TIOBE index.
The language stood out for its exceptional speed, making it a tough opponent for programming languages like Python, R, and MATLAB.
