Steve Johnson maintains an excellent resource for using Julia in the classroom at MIT.
The Julia and IPython teams have collaborated to
develop IJulia, which
provides a powerful graphical notebook interface to Julia.
Julia binaries are available for
Mac and Windows. It is also easy to build from
source on Linux, Mac, and
