“Labrador makes it easy to understand electronics – the software is responsive and user-friendly and transforms engineering tools into affordable and smart solutions.”Chris Esposito, a recent electrical engineering graduate from the Monash University, announces his latest invention, EspoTek Labrador, a device that can transform a personal computer into a feature-packed electronics lab. With splendid features, such as oscilloscope channel, multimeter, logic analyzer, power supply and arbitrary waveform generator, Labrador just weighs 10 grams, is 31mm x 38mm in size and costs only $25.From a final year University project to commercial market, Labrador has come a long way.

For those who are working in data sciences and computational fields, some of the commonly used programming languages would have been Python, R, Scala, Java etc. However, most of these languages are far away from C program in terms of performance. If one were to make heavy-duty computations by not compromising on performance, julia could be the immediate choice. Despite being a dynamically typed language, julia offers performance almost close to a C program. Julia is a free, open source programming language whose core implementation is licensed under MIT license. It is relatively young and evolving. Some of the key features of the language are described below.
