  • Cython is a superset of the Python language which, when translated to C and compiled, can be loaded as an extension module into the standard CPython interpreter.

    The Cython language is essentially Python with optional typing and a bit of low-level C thrown in. One can use it to:

    - Wrap C and C++ libraries. Whereas some other tools (SWIG) offer 1:1 API translation, Cython is more about conveniently writing a high-level Python interface on top of a low-level library.

    - Speed. Cython is very popular in scientific Python in order to do number crunching.

    I'll provide a general introduction with some examples both from calling a C library and from number crunching, and then we'll be able to dive into the usecases of the group present and see if Cython is a good fit for your particular problems.

    Sorry to hear Dag! Hope you feel better soon... and look forward to the event being rescheduled.

    Sorry folks, but I have to cancel this meetup because our speaker is sick (nothing serious, but you wouldn't want to catch it!). We'll be rescheduling for another time in the near future.

  • Dag Sverre S.

    Sorry all, but I've become sick and won't be able to give the talk tomorrow.

    I'd be delighted to give the talk some other time (e.g., Thursday February 21, 1900?)

    Just to be sure: no pizza supplied, but can we bring some sandwiches and eat at the Finn office?

    • Anton T.

      No! You're not allowed to eat any food Cyrille! :)

      But you're right - my employer can't sponsor with pizza at this venue. Sorry!

  • Robert S.

    Everybody please note the VENUE CHANGE. We'll now be at courtesy of Rune Halvorsen.

    We can use the cantine, or one of the bigger meeting rooms, here at Finn if you like. It's in Grensen, so very central. Another alternative is to book The Scottsman. Apparently they don't charge for such events.

      Rune, Can we take up your offer of hosting at Finn? Try to change the meetup location yourself. If you can't manage it I might need to fiddle with the permissions.

      Hey, didn't see your comment until now. Should be fine, will confirm tomorrow morning

    Hi folks,

    I'm looking for a venue for this. I was contacted with an offer, but I can no longer get hold of the person who offered.

    I can host the meetup here at Roxar in Lysaker (with pizza!) if nobody has a better or more convenient offer.
