I already know Python, for one

This is the biggest factor.

Also Julia’s ecosystem is in infancy in comparison.

Not as many libraries and other tools for it.

Why use Julia when Rust is so much better?

wargreymon@sh.itjust.works on 19 Jun 2024 06:12 collapse

Rust code is lot more verbose and much harder to learn bc ownership 🤷

I’m happy with Scala3 - whose syntax is easy to read like python, but compiler and tooling now smart, fast and safe, and also compiles to JS for the web.

In what ways do you see Julia as better?

Better for what?

wargreymon@sh.itjust.works on 19 Jun 2024 04:32 collapse

every aspect

Your reply is a lazy and uninformative answer that I’m inclined not to take seriously.
