- March 2013
- I was awarded the 2012 Award for the Advancement of Free Software for the
creation of IPython and my contributions to the Open Source Scientific Python
ecosystem. UC Berkeley also put out a more detailed release.
- March 2011
- I’ve finally gathered the slides for our minisymposium on Python for
Scientific computing at the SIAM CSE 2011 conference
(blog post and
- March 2011
- The Sage Days 29 workshop was a success on multiple fronts, and in
particular for IPython we made a ton of progress.
- February 2011
- During the 2011 AAAS annual meeting I spoke at a symposium titled The
Digitization of Science: Reproducibility and Interdisciplinary Knowledge
Transfer organized by Columbia’s
Victoria Stodden. I have put up a short `blog post`_ about the event as
well as my slides and an extended abstract.
- February 2011
- I’m thrilled to have been invited to present the keynote at this year’s
EuroScipy conference. I haven’t had a chance yet to attend the European
version of the SciPy conferences, so I’m very much looking forward to it.
- December 2010
- My recent trip to Scipy India 2010 was a very interesting experience; I’m
really impressed by the Indian government’s vision with their FOSSEE.in
project. Here are the slides for my invited talk and some general
pictures_, but I have yet to write a proper post summarizing things. Stay
- July 2010
- Our paper Double dissociation of two cognitive control networks in patients
with focal brain lesions is out in PNAS (PDF version).
- January 2010
- I’m very excited to visit Colombia for a month, to teach an intensive course
on scientific computing using Python and a practical, modern and hopefully
useful approach. I’ve created a section on Teaching with these
materials, including a detailed page on the planned course.
- December 2009
- Some notes on how to configure InDefero on a
shared hosting account to host your own Git repositories for private
collaboration (e.g. co-authoring of grants and papers using Git, something
you may not want to do on a public site).
- November 2009, how this site is built
- I’ve added a section with the tools used to build this
site, which several people have inquired about.
- November 2009, a discussion with Guido van Rossum
- At our informal Berkeley Py4Science seminar, the November 4
session was a very interesting discussion with Guido van Rossum, the creator
of the Python language. Read more...
- September 2009, PyDy
- At our meeting series, Luke Peterson from UC Davis gave a very interesting
talk on PyDy, a project under the SymPy umbrella to symbolically describe
mechanical systems and derive their equations of motion. (video link).
- September 2009, decorators
- Some notes about decorators for controlling execution
from a September 2009 talk at the Berkeley Py4Science group.
