Python and Scientific Computing in Open-Source

with one comment

Students and faculty are invited to an interactive tutorial to learn about Python. This tutorial will introduce you to Python and scientific tools built around it for many years. It is an easy to learn, open-source and free programming language. Python provides tools for scientific computing, including but not limited to data analysis and visualization, mathematical calculations, web-based interfaces, communication between other computer languages, and powerful parallel processing capabilities.

Attenders of Physical and Applied Sciences will discover how Python would be applied to their fields. This tutorial will also give a fast tour demonstrating the benefits of using open-source scientific tools and development environments.

Everybody from different disciplines and backgrounds are invited to join. While we will provide a limited number of laptops, participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops, and install PythonXY [http://www.pythonxy.com] or EPD [http://www.enthought.com/products/epd.php] distribution for their system. Alternatively, Sage Notebook [www.sagenb.org] could be used throughout the session to get most out of this tutorial. Participants will be also be walked through an installation at the beginning of the tutorial.

The tutorial will be lead by Gökhan Sever, graduate student in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences.

Where: Badlands Room, 2nd Floor Memorial Union
When: Wednesday 10 March, 1pm
Duration: 1hr -1.5hrs
