Julia Astro

Julia Astro coordinates the development of community astronomy and astrophysics software packages for the Julia programming language. Julia has a growing user base in astronomy research, and Julia Astro is building up some of the basic libraries necessary for common tasks in the analysis of astronomical datasets. Currently, this includes packages for the widely used FITS file format, world coordinate system (WCS) transformations, and computing cosmological distances, among others. Development and coordination takes place on GitHub: http://github.com/JuliaAstro.
