About this Episode

This week on Talk Julia, David and Randy discuss the a cuter alternative to the Iris dataset for teaching machine learning: PalmerPenguin.jl. We also dive into some awesome features of Julia's package manager — namely stacked environments — an awesome You Tube channel for learning Julia, and what the difference between using and import is when importing a package into your project.
