Some talks and presentations, in reverse chronological order (don't be
surprised to find repeated material/slides as the topics do overlap):
`IPython & StarCluster: Scalable Cloud Computing for the rest of us(a Qiime
illustration) <1204_nih_cloud_ipython.pdf>`_
Short slides introducing a demo presented at the NIH cloud workshop.
`IPython: Python at your fingertips <1203_ipython_pycon.pdf>`_
Talk delivered at the PyCon 2012 conference in Santa Clara, CA. It
combines a rapid overview of the IPython project with hands-on demos using
the new HTML notebook interface. This is the full video:

`Ten years of (interactive) scientific Python <1108_euroscipy_keynote.pdf>`_
August 2011, the slides for my keynote presentation at EuroSciPy (I don't
have video available). Many thanks to the awesome organizing team, in
particular `GaĆ«l Varoquaux `_ and `Emanuelle
Gouillart
`_
for the invitation, hospitality, and amazing work they've done with
EuroSciPy and Scientific Python in general.
`Python: a view from the floating-point side <1103_uwashington.pdf>`_
March 2011, a talk presented at the `Sage Days 29`_ workshop, on the use of
python for numerical work, with some historical personal background.
William Stein recorded the talk and posted it online, as well as posting
`some pictures from the last day`_ (for those who have asked, the anecdote
about how I unplugged Colombia from the internet when I was a physics
undergrad is from 0:11:20 to 0:14:12):

`Reproducible software vs. reproducible research <1102_aaas_reproducibility_fperez_slides.pdf>`_
February 2011, a talk presented at the panel_ titled *The Digitization of
Science: Reproducibility and Interdisciplinary Knowledge Transfer*, during
the 2011 annual meeting of the AAAS. An `extended abstract`_ is available
that spells out some of the ideas I presented in the talk; I hope to
complete this writeup into something a little more formal soon.
