This article briefly describes a new programming language Julia and a new innovative Finite Element Method (FEM) solver JuliaFEM. We selected an easy to understand example of a linear elasticity problem as a method for this introduction. We go through the example step by step and provide a detailed explanation of the different phases of the solution steps. The main result presented here demonstrates the scripting possibilities of JuliaFEM, both pre- and post-processing.
