Fernández-Villaverde to Speak at Becker Friedman Institute

To those readers affiliated with the University of Chicago:

The economist Jesús Fernández-Villaverde, University of Pennsylvania, a leader in the field of computational economics and co-author of the paper that motivated my switch to Julia, is speaking at the Computational Economics Colloquium, Becker Friedman Institute, on Thursday at 5pm.

The title of his talk is Massively Parallel Programming for Economists: Challenges and Opportunities. (My tutorial on parallel programming in Julia is available here.)

Hope to see you there.
