Issues with the Julia Language

Similar to a previous post on the problems of the R programming language (here), in this post, I will make a collection of Internet articles on several issues about the Julia language.

This post was inspired by Why I no longer recommend Julia, written by Yuri Vishnevsky, an influential Julia user and developer, in which he explains why he no longer recommends Julia: most notably, the "correctness" of the language is a major concern.

The post by Yuri is definitely insightful, and I was immediately reminded of the collection of articles on "why R is terrible" that I previously made. Although I do have a strong bias for Julia and against R, I believe it is only fair that I make a similar list for the Julia language.

Indeed, apart from Yuri's original post, I have also included several discussion threads and responses from the Julia community (obviously due to my personal bias).
