[SciPy-Dev] [Probe] How amongst you are pro devs working for scipy ?
Sat Jun 9 07:14:16 CDT 2012
First I would like to tell you that I am a somehow satisfied scipy user,
even if I feel it lacks official recognition.
First, my question is concerning the scipy developers. I would like to
know, amongst you, who is working on scipy as paid-job, or only on its
spare time. Basically it makes the developer community divides in two
parts : the first is the community of hobbyists, the second the
community of profesional developers.
Knowing grossly the proportion of pro and hobbyist, I would have a
second question, related to the first : who uses scipy in business
related project (I mean, no academic, that is to say, any work that is
not included into a public research project).
I feel that scipy is a very big project, and must have a lot of
maintainers, and I am wondering if this project is actually used by real
people out there, apart from PhD student (including myself) and researchers.
I know that scipy, in its field, may encounter two great concurrents
(for the least), namely matlab and octave, even if the goal of scipy may
be slightly different.
Well, any developer or member of the community that could answer this
question or give some hints on the related topic would be very nice.
