        Hi all,
<br><br>we wanted to give you all some absolutely fantastic news regarding
<br>IPython that we just received...  This also partly explains my silence
<br>during much of this semester, as I was focused on looking for
<br>long-term funding for IPython.
<br><br>We are proud to announce that we&#39;ve received funding from the Alfred
<br>P. Sloan foundation (<a href="http://sloan.org" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" link="external">http://sloan.org</a>) that will support IPython
<br>development for the next two years.  Thanks to this $1.15M grant,
<br>Brian Granger and I will be working roughly 3/4 of our time on
<br>IPython, Min Ragan-Kelley will be our lead project engineer, and Paul
<br>Ivanov and Thomas Kluyver will be working as postdocs on the project.
<br>Furthermore,  Matthew Brett and JB Poline of Nipy fame will be working
<br>part-time on the development of notebooks for applied statistics in
<br>collaboration with Jonathan Taylor from Stanford (these materials will
<br>be used by Jonathan in the teaching of his applied stats course, the
<br>STAT 191 course - <a href="http://www.stanford.edu/class/stats191" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" link="external">http://www.stanford.edu/class/stats191</a>).  While
<br>Brian is at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo,  the rest of our team will be
<br>located at Berkeley (with frequent visits to Stanford for the
<br>statistics work with Jonathan).
<br><br>This will also give us resources to support two annual all-hands
<br>development sprints at Berkeley where I hope all our core developers
<br>will be able to attend, as well as funding for cloud resources so that
<br>we can provide paid support for our CI hosting and nbviewer beyond
<br>what the free plans allow (and further services that may arise over
<br>time).
<br><br>We&#39;d like to particularly thank Josh Greenberg, our program director
<br>at the Sloan foundation, for the phenomenal guidance and support he
<br>provided during the grant proposal preparation and detailed review
<br>process.
<br><br>Needless to say, we are extremely excited about these news.  We&#39;ll
<br>have more announcements to make over the next few weeks, but now I
<br>need to get a lot of administrative wheels in motion quickly, as the
<br>funding officially starts Jan 1, 2013!
<br><br>All the best,
<br><br>f
