PyLadies Monthly Meeting - SCIENCE!!!

The topic of this month's Meetup will be on using Python in the math and science research space, specifically, using the reknowned "MatPlotLib" and "SciPy" libraries!  We'll cover:

  • Importing data from data files (the biggest pain of them all in science!)
  • Plotting graphs, histograms, and 3d graphs
  • Some of the basic data processing topics as we have time: filtering data, peak detections, and identifying clusters of data!

PRE CLASS PREPARATION:

1. In order to get down and dirty into all this as soon as possible, if you don't already have MatPlotLib and SciPy installed, please please please make it easy on yourself and just install the Canopy package (or at least download it before the meetup).  The Canopy package is a pre-packaged version of Python 2.7 and 120 common Python packages that the folks at Enthought developed because they were tired of installing Python packages.  It can be downloaded here for Mac, Linux, or Windows:

https://www.enthought.com/downloads/

Once you download the file to your desktop, double click it to run the installer.

2. Sneek preview of the code snippets we'll be using will be located here (will be posted evening of 12/10):

    Does anyone having problem starting Canopy? When I try to launch it, nothing happens.

      Can you make it early? If so, I'll try to help you bug fix.

    I was gonna come one last time before moving to Europe, but unfortunately I have to cancel (too much moving stress...). Just want to say: Jennifer and Margaret, you are awesome! I'm very impressed with how you've built this group.

    I am sick and might not be able to make it-- will there be another science related one soon?? Please say yes

      Unfortunately, that is not likely unless someone else volunteers to present on the topic. However, the slides and code will all be online.

    Sample code and data for downloading beforehand is now up here:

    I'm very excited to show you all the stuff my favorite language + one of my favorite timesaving libraries can do. Forget Matlab and Excel! If anyone has any questions beforehand they can email me at

    If you're using a Mac and want to install all of these tools, this pack seems to have done the job for me: http://fonnesbeck.github.io/ScipySuperpack/ Just download the zip file and run the script included.

    Perfect!! Was waiting for something exactly like this
