    The post-presentation discussions were lively and informative thanks to the creativity and expertise of the participants. Future sessions will have guest speakers and hands-on coding.

    I like the idea of a task-focused meeting, but we need a lower barrier to getting going (such as instructions for using ipython notebook if that's what you intend, or use a room with machines already setup). Or perhaps do everything on paper and give groups a bit more focus towards a goal.
