April Meetup

Join us for the monthly Python Users Group meetup! Whether you are a beginner or an advanced user, come and meet others and learn and share what you know.

Enthought is our sponsor this month's general meetup! Enthought is the maker of the Python software packages for scientific computing Canopy and Canopy Express. More details on Canopy Express can be found at: https://www.enthought.com/products/canopy/features/



Presentation 1:

Speakers: Mike Pan and Rise Riyo

See http://molecularviewbook.org/

Mike is the co-auther of the soon-to-be released, _Mastering Blender Game Engine_ :


Presentation 2:

Speaker: Kurt Smith from Enthought

Kurt has been using Python in scientific computing for nearly ten years, and has developed tools to simplify the integration of performance-oriented languages with Python. He received his B.S. in physics and applied mathematics from the University of Dallas, and his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His doctoral research focused on the application of fluid plasma models to astrophysical systems, involving the composition of high-performance simulations of plasma turbulence.

Topic: Canopy Express

    Looking forward to the talks. Thanks to Enthought for sponsoring! Regarding Enthought: I'd be interested in hearing more about the advantages / disadvantages of Enthought's EPD_free compared to PythonXY and Anaconda with respect to scientific computing. I am familiar with Numba, Blaze, etc., but these are a bit too early in their development for me to be focused on them - what is Enthought's advantage over PythonXY or Anaconda for general scientific computation?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
