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