If you're in Boulder next Wednesday, please join us at our monthly 
meeting of the Boulder Earth and Space Science Informatics Group 
(BESSIG).  Our topic is:

Py in the Sky: IPython and other tools for scientific computing

Monte Lunacek, Application Specialist, CU Research Computing
Roland Viger, Research Geographer, USGS

Python offers a rich toolkit that is useful for scientific computing. 
In this talk, we will introduce the IPython package and discuss three 
useful components: the interactive shell, the web-based notebook, and 
the parallel interface.  We will also demonstrate a few concepts from 
the Pandas data analysis package and, time permitting, offer a few tips 
on how to profile and effortlessly speedup your python code.  This talk 
will describe and illustrate these tools with example code.  If Python 
is not your favorite programming language, this overview might change that.

Complete information is available at our web site: 

Hope to see you there!
