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!
