Community Standards

Please take a moment to read the Julia Community Standards. We expect that your participation in any Julia related forum, online or offline, respects these standards.

Diversity and Inclusion

The Julia Community is committed to continuing to foster an inclusive and diverse culture. Read more about how we are doing this on our diversity page.

2019 Julia User and Developer Survey

We conducted the first annual Julia User & Developer Survey in June 2019, and presented the results at JuliaCon. Download the survey findings.

Official Channels


We use GitHub for the development of Julia itself. There we host our source code, track issues, and accept pull requests. We use the issue tracker for bug reports, feature requests, and proposed changes. For support and questions, please use Discourse.


The primary online discussion venue for Julia is the Discourse forum. Discourse is the right place to do any of the following:

For Chinese users a Simplified Chinese version discourse is also hosted by the community. Please click this Julia中文论坛 link.

The Discourse forum replaced the Julia mailing lists, the largest of which were julia-users and julia-dev, at the end of 2016. Those lists are now read-only but you may like to search them to see if your question has already been raised.


For casual conversation and quick, informal questions, we have an official Julia Slack. Slack is also a good place to start if you think you need help but aren’t quite sure what you should be asking or where to ask it. To join, please visit to agree to the community code of conduct and receive an invitation.

The JuliaCN community has a QQ group: 316628299


All the JuliaCon videos and other videos of general interest in the community are uploaded to the Julia Language YouTube channel.

Other channels

On Twitter, tweet with the #julialang hashtag.

Julia also has a presence on Stack Overflow under the julia tag, and on Stack Overflow en Español under julia.

For those who prefer IRC to our official forums, there is a #julia channel on Freenode. We also have an unofficial Gitter channel. There is a small Julia subreddit for casual discussion. As an open source alternative to Slack, we have a Julia Zulip organization which you can get an automated invite to at this link.

International Community

The Julia community is global, with meetups all over the world and resources in a variety of different languages.
