Re: [PhillyPUG] Talk on NumPy & SciPy at the Ludington Library, Bryn Mawr, this Saturday at 10:30

Hi Maneesha,

Tomorrow's talk on SciPy & NumPy is absolutely free!  No registration!  We'd be delighted to have you (& any other pythonistas) there!

Walt did this talk on Wednesday for the Linux group so it is pretty platform independent.  I think there are some Mac specific bits about how to install on a Mac, but I think Walt will be keeping the stuff about how to install on Linux, since a lot of us know & love both.

Hi -

I have a couple of questions.

Is this event free/open to the public?  Is registration required?
Is there anything Mac-specific that will be going on? (I'm on ubuntu.)

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

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.


Get directions to the Ludington from their home page:  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.
