Developer of Ahorn and similar tools. Using Julia professionally since 2017.
Applications written in Julia targeted at a nonprofessional audience are still uncommon, even though libraries for designing such applications have existed for years. For software to be easy to use by laypeople, a simple installation process and an intuitive GUI are essential. We have been developing and deploying such an application for over three years. This talk will focus on our experiences during that time, how the situation has improved since Julia 0.6, and what it looks like today.
