I've been at the KITP Galaxy Clusters workshop today and yesterday, and after chatting with people here about a few fun ideas, I have started to realize that a very useful thing we could do is make it easier to call external, pre-existing analysis codes. To that end, last night I wrote up some very simple documentation that walks you through the idea of calling a C library using Cython. I wanted to throw it out there and see if anyone had any feedback. This is just a simple example, but I think it is pretty demonstrative.
Anyway, I will probably write more later about this workshop; talking to some of the participants has been very informative and energizing. I'm presenting an intro/tutorial on yt this afternoon, as well, so hopefully that will garner some good feedback and ideas.
