BrisPy: Monthly Meeting - Q&A, Lightning Talks

Hello all,

Today we released PyCon Australia's schedule, and I'm very proud of some of the local names that the paper committee (at arms length from me) picked. Check out the full schedule at http://2014.pycon-au.org/programme/about and let me know if you have any questions about the conference at all.

We're due for our monthly meeting next week, but since I'm neck deep in conference organiser land I haven't organised a talk, so we're going to be doing Q&A. Please bring along your Python questions and news about any new libraries you've been using.

Please remember to RSVP so our (BrisPy and PyCon!) sponsor Netbox Blue can cater appropriately.

thanks all,

    Last night we discussed ( at the other end of the table ) pandas http://pandas.pydata.org/. Python Data Analysis Library. This is installed with Anaconda Python along with numpy. The referenced text is Python for Data Analysis ( http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920023784.do).

    Is there any interest in a talk on this library, possibly included D3 for graphics? I can prepare something for next meeting if there is reasonable interest.

      Yes, my interest is strongly in the technical data analysis area. I already use pandas, but it's always interesting to see how others are using such an interesting package.

      Clinton, if you're up for it, I can see if there's interesting in hosting a BrisPy at Red Hat next week. Montreal Python did that during the PyCon US sprints, and it seems like a good way to help convert interest in the conference into interest in the user group.

    Thanks to Caleb suggestion I tried Anaconda Python
    http://continuum.io/downloads

    Sanity in my python environment prevails.

    Nice distro. I'd recommend it for anyone using a Mac for dev.

    I removed all pip packages and removed macports and installed homebrew. http://brew.sh/ Very nice.

      Every so often, you just "conda update conda" followed by "conda update anaconda" to upgrade the packages in the distribution. This "just works" on Windows, Mac and Linux, and on windows in particular, all the packages with C extensions are already supplied as binaries so you don't have to set up a build environment, which is turns out to be difficult than you might expect depending on the particular versions of C/C++ and FORTRAN compilers required for the different versions of python.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
