[Numpy-discussion] [numfocus] Growing the contributor base of Numpy
Sun Apr 7 16:40:01 CDT 2013
I have prepared a preliminary proposal
Roughly, after ensuring everybody knows how to build numpy from
sources in a dev-friendly way, I was thinking about
- describing the source code tree organization
- talk about the main data structures (array + dtype), and how they
relate to the python runtime
- more details about dtype: use basic array operations to describe
the whole mechanism, and how to create a simple one (using wrapping
float128 as an example)
I also intended to give a few tips regarding tools (e.g. how to track
a python call to its core C implementation).
Stéfan Van Der Walt agreed in principle to contribute, but his
participation is still very conditional.
