What's the coolest thing you've done with Python?

I've ported a ~10,000 line FORTRAN codebase used to homogenize/process the US Historical Climatology Network's surface temperature record to Python with the help of NumPy, open sourcing the code in the process and engineering it to be easier to maintain, test, and further develop.

What would you like to learn in the Python world?

In my work, performance is key, so I'm very interested in developing my accumen with NumPy, Cython, and any other tool which helps me tackle big data problems.

Any particular areas of expertise outside of Python?

Numerical methods for partial differential equations, meteorology.

Introduction

I'm PhD student at MIT working with numerically modeling processes in the atmospheric, particularly with respect to clouds.
