On Countries, Escapees, and the Power of ❤️: An Analysis of Helicopter Escape Attempts and Success Chance

Hello everyone,

I’ve been learning Julia on the side, and I thought “why not complete the helicopter escape project again but with Julia?”

And now it’s complete. It was not easy, especially considering the already high cognitive load from doing Dataquest as well. Plus, juggling two programming languages made me prone to use the wrong syntax in Python and Julia i.e. using Python syntax when writing Julia and vice versa. (Side trivia: Julia uses 1-based indexing)

I’m very blind to my flaws, so I appreciate if people can identify and suggest how I can fix the inevitable mistakes and weaknesses in my project. And it’s likely you are not familiar with Julia, so thoughts on the non-code aspects are also very appreciated.

Thank you for your attention.
