starting to learn julia

That aside, I’ve forked the Shapefile.jl repo and put in some goals to further Julia’s spatial analysis capabilities. I don’t know what the community ethics/practices are for Julia, but I’m always slightly nervous about being the first fork on a repo that hasn’t been touched in a few months. I can’t really explain why. Maybe it’s just a concern that my preference for private repos and anonymous contribution makes my github page look sparse. I don’t know. Regardless, we’ll see where I can go with broadening Julia’s spatial analysis toolset, either through pysal or around it. Maybe I can even pitch this as a GSOC instead of the proposal I’ve been working on…
