    This looks like a beautiful course. I wish I had time to take it.

    It looks like they’ve committed to computational notebooks. It’s really the only reasonable way to run a class like this. But wow, the first notebook:

    When running this notebook for the first time, this could take up to 15 minutes. Hang in there!

    I guess it’s the overhead of setting up the project on Binder first.

      The lengthy warmup is kind of a meme within the Julia community. https://discourse.julialang.org/t/roadmap-for-a-faster-time-to-first-plot/22956

        Oh yeah - that’s a mega thread. hah. So there is no scripting solution in Julia yet because of the slow startup times, I take it?

        I used to work at Nextjournal. They have robust Julia support and it was never 15 minutes. It’s pretty clearly a case of Binder allocating resources for the notebook in the background.
