[IPython-dev] Fwd: [SciPy-User] PyData NYC 2012 Speakers and Talks announced!
Fri Sep 28 16:10:27 CDT 2012
Speaking of signs of a healthy project: don't forget to mention the fact
that many of the sessions at PyData will likely use the ipython notebook
as a teaching tool. I know that will be the case for the two tutorials
I'm preparing on matplotlib and scikit-learn.
While we're on the subject, I want to say a huge thank-you to all the
folks who have worked on the notebook project. It's an incredible
contribution to the scientific python community.
