The Macintosh Programming SIG is meeting this coming Saturday, at 10:30, in the main room at the Ludington Library.
Walt Mankowski will share his adventures in understanding scientific computing in Python. Per Walt:
NumPy and SciPy
are a collection of packages for scientific computing in Python. NumPy provides a set of routines for fast vectorized operations on arrays, and SciPy is a collection of mathematical and scientific algorithms built on top of NumPy. Together they extend Python into an open source data processing and prototyping environment many scientific programmers are choosing to use instead of expensive, proprietary commercial systems such as MATLAB. At this month's meeting, Walt Mankowski will present an introduction to NumPy and SciPy and show you how to get started using these packages in your own work.

. It's at the main intersection in Bryn Mawr, Lancaster Ave (rt 30) & Bryn Mawr Ave, so easy to get to. And there is a train stop a block away.
The Mac Programming SIG meets the 1st Saturday of each month at 10:30 for about 2 hours (discussions sometimes go a bit past that). We usually skip the July & January meetings because the 1st Saturday is too close to the 4th of July and New Years, respectively, so that is about 10 meetings/year.
We talk about stuff that relates to Mac programming, but that can include stuff that also runs on the mac or how to make a living programming the Mac.
