Hello all Python users:
I am pleased to announce the beginning of a free Webinar series that discusses using Python for scientific computing. Enthought will host this free series which will take place once a month for 30-45 minutes. The schedule and length may change based on participation feedback, but for now it is scheduled for the fourth Friday of every month. This free webinar should not be confused with the EPD webinar on the first Friday of each month which is open only to subscribers to the Enthought Python Distribution.
I (Travis Oliphant) will be the first speaker at this continuing series. I plan to present a brief (10-15) minute talk on reading binary files with NumPy using memory mapped arrays and structured data-types. This talk will be followed by a demonstration of Chaco for interactive 2-d visualization and Mayavi for interactive 3-d visualization. Both Chaco and Mayavi are open-source tools and part of the Enthought Tool Suite. They can be conveniently installed using the Enthought Python Distribution. Topics for future webinars will be chosen later based on participant feedback.
This event will take place on Friday at 3:00pm CDT and will last 30 to 45 minutes depending on questions asked. Space is limited at this event. If you would like to participate, please register by going to https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/422340144 or by clicking on the appropriate link in the attached announcement.
There will be a 10 minute technical help session prior to the on-line meeting which you should plan to use if you have never participated in a GoToWebinar previously. During this time you can test your connection and audio equipment as well as familiarize yourself with the GoTo Meeting software.
I am looking forward to interacting with many of you this Friday.
