Announcing a new Meetup for The New York Python Meetup Group!

What: SciPy + NumPy - Travis Oliphant - WEDNESDAY 20

When: Wednesday, October 20,[masked]:00 PM

Where: AOL Ventures
770 Broadway 6th Floor
New York, NY 10003

Hey all, happy October!

This month, we're very lucky to have Travis Oliphant presenting! Among other things, Travis is one of the co-authors of SciPy. Per usual, we'll also have lightning talks, job/other announcements, and we'll head out for drinks afterwards. I've attached a detailed bio of Travis below. This is a meeting you won't want to miss!

NOTE ABOUT THE TIME/PLACE - this month we'll be at AOL, on WEDNESDAY. It's not our normal time, but it's what we needed in order to work with our guest and host. And - it'll be worth it. I'm looking forward to seeing you there!


Travis has worked extensively with Python for numerical and scientific programming since 1997. He was the primary developer of the NumPy package and the author of the definitive Guide to NumPy. He was an early contributor to the documentation for the Numeric package and in 1999 released Multipack for Python. In 2001, he folded Multipack into SciPy as one of the original co-authors of that package. He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from Brigham Young University in Math and Electrical Engineering, and he received a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the Mayo Clinic in 2001. From December 2000 to August 2007 he worked as an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Brigham Young University where he also directed the Biomedical Imaging Lab and taught courses in inverse problems, signal processing, probability theory, and electromagnetics.
