More details about the talks: Jacob Hallen on PyPy - introduction to the project, including recent progress on the JIT etc. Magnus Lyckå on error handling in Python - what works and what doesn't? presentation and discussion. Andrew Dalke on "What's Python doing inside?" - Python has a lot of hooks and debugging flags which let you watch the import process, memory use, and run-time evaluation. I'll describe many of them and explain how they can be useful. Oscar Lindberg - Introduction to NumPy NumPy is an Python extension for large, multi-dimensional arrays and matrices. The talk will explain how to use it and when to use it. Some examples using OpenGL and some using a WebCam feed will be shown. Your organizers, Emily Bache and Andrew Dalke
