Monthly Python Users Group
The next meeting of the Python users Group will be Thursday, December 12 at 1244 Blossom
street, Room 320 from 11am to 12pm. This month's speaker will be Ben Torkian, RCI's
Application Scientist. Mr. Torkian will be giving an overview of Anaconda and some
associated utilities like Pandas, Matplotlib and Numpy.
The Python programming language is used by academia and industry in a diverse range of disciplines- including bioinformatics, engineering, language processing, visualization, computational science and and finance. The Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCI) group manages several high performance computing clusters offering iPython environments that add sophisticated science, math, engineering and data analysis capabilities. The users group meetings will provide a platform for python users, from novice to expert, to interact and discover resources to enhance their Python knowledge. Over the coming months, RCI will also host presentations, provide training sessions, and schedule advanced workshops for other Research and Technology topics.
All faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend and participate.
