Pure and Julia are cool languages worth checking out

By Mark Gibbs, Network World |  Software, julia, programming

I'd love to see Julia implemented on Parallela, a Kickstarter project I was amped about last year, that succeeded in raising almost $900,000 on its goal of $750,000. Described as "A Supercomputer For Everyone," this $99 board, which runs Linux, will support a performance of 26 GFLOPS and should be perfect for a language like Julia.

Enough of the rarified stuff: Here's something that may make you more productive in 2013 ... Mindjet Tasks.

I wrote about Mindjet last May when the company released Mindjet Maps for iPad and Android and for iPhone.

I still think that these apps ... which are free! ... are indispensable planning tools. Late last year, Mindjet released another iOS app that's related to mind-mapping: Mindjet Tasks.

Mindjet Tasks allows you and your team to set up dashboards for projects so you can coordinate planning from wherever you have a cell signal. If you do have some kind of connection, then Mindjet Tasks allows you to make on-the-fly task assignments with real-time updates and team postings. It will also auto-prioritize tasks and can share data with MindJet on OS X and Windows.

I've always been an admirer of Mindjet and Mindjet Tasks looks like a very slick addition to their product line. I'll give it a Gearhead rating of 5 out of 5!

Gibbs is geeked out but organized in Ventura, Calif. Your resolutions to gearhead@gibbs.com and follow him on Twitter and App.net (@quistuipater) and on Facebook (quistuipater).
