    Hey, thanks for setting this up! I was talking to some of you in the Chesterfield room and I mentioned the free O'Reilly webcasts (e.g. intro to d3.js or intro to Python's Pandas). Here's the links to the webcasts. Hope it helps:

    Wondering about Python development environment pros and cons, e.g., Windows vs. Linux (CentOS). Any thoughts?

      Centos is very stable, but a bit behind on lots of stuff. Outside of .NET development, I hate to be stuck on a windows machine.

      i've had good luck with this 100% debian based distro, aptosid.com, can write *iso to a usb stick and use it to boot and run to try it out.. has everything to shrink current, create new or whatever your disc's current partitions and install.. start it or whatever you've got with grub2... could make you 19% happier.. rolling releases.. multiple new *iso a year.. etc..

    Hi all, as an FYI, you will need to show ID to security at the front desk and then they will issue you a daily pass. Please come up to the 11th Floor.
