    I enjoyed analyzing the Numpy module and reviewing some points of comparison between C and Python.

    Well, we spent the better part of two hours going through some of the Numpy source, written in C, very fascinating! I rewrote one of the C functions in Python just to demonstrate the semantics of what it was doing, but for the most part, we had to take the comments at face value. I did learn a little bit about Numpy as we were going, but next time I think I'll stick to source code written in Python as the main focus. I hope everyone else got a lot out of it.

    Hey Aaron, I made an outline of the dataframe code, grouping some methods and adding a few notes, this might be useful to give a general overview and select the more interesting methods to look at. http://pastebin.com/9ZSxpPM8

      Cool, that looks useful for our Sunday DataFrame discussions. We'll use that next Sunday to review.

    I'm going to plug into the big screen and I'll take any questions as I freestyle through source code and elaborate on it! Any special requests?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
