February Presentation Night: Football, Cycles, Red Line

Tonight we have three talks, sponsored by WorkMob.

Bill Mill, Choosing Your Fantasy Football Team with IPython.  Want a winning football team?  Analyze the stats to assemble the best players, using IPython notebook.

Edmund Jorgenson, Shortening your dev-cycle time with Python.  Edmund has tools and workflow he uses to reduce the time to develop his software.

Allen Downey, The Red Line problem. Allen uses statistics and Python to predict the time until the next train arrives, based on the number of passengers on the platform.

Pizza will be provided by WorkMob.  Afterwards, we'll head to Meadhall for drinks, sponsored by Zefr.

    The sunflower pattern animation I ran before the meeting started is here: http://www.tiac.net/~sw/2014/02/Meristem

    Both the PyProcessing source code and Processing applet with source code (hand-converted from Python) are there. Interesting links within the source code, too.

    Hi! So I signed up to the waiting list and I wanted to know how I would know if my spot is confirmed, and when I might expect to know.

    Thank you!

      You will get an email from meetup.com if you are moved into the Yes category. People often change their RSVP in the last day before the event, so don't despair! :)
