Python for Scientific Computing Webinar

We are trying something new at Enthought. I’m going to host the first Enthought Webinar on Scientific Computing. This webinar is free for people interested in showing up. You should plan to come with a bit of patience as we may not have all the wrinkles worked out of the technology and what it means for having a discussion.

I want to spread the word about all the very cool tools that the Open Source community has produced for using Python in Science. The first webinar will be on Friday at 3:00pm CDT. You can attend via your computer by registering at the following link: Python for Scientific Computing Webinar. I will be talking about NumPy, structured data-types, and memory mapped arrays (and how to use them for reading data quickly from files). I will also be showing off Chaco for 2-d interactive visualization and Mayavi for 3-d visualization. Come with questions as you will have the opportunity to ask them if you would like.

We will start 15 minutes early for people who want to get help setting up with the Webinar technology from GotoMeeting. If you have never attended a Webinar before, you may want to come and try it out. I look forward to seeing many of you online this Friday.

    Since python is pretty much open-source and has a fair following on linux, and since Enthought supports linux distribution of its software (at least RedHat), it would have been nice if you had chosen a web meeting platform that allows linux users to participate. GoToMeeting does NOT, and only recently supports the Mac. This seems to be rather limiting for your company which aims for a broad marketplace.

    Your comment about the web meeting platform is appropriate and well taken. We are just getting started in this endeavor and are open to suggestions about a web meeting platform that is more inclusive.

    Do you know of other web-meeting platforms that allow participation for linux users?

    Like Christian, I won’t be able to make it. 2 days’ notice, and I only found out about it this morning, is a little light. Maybe okay for a test run, but I would love to see the content at some point. Will you be offering recorded versions, or running the webinar again at some point? Thanks much, looking forward to it.

    I think this webinar is a great idea. I am a scientist working in structural biology, and numpy, scipy, pymol, biopython, etc. are my main tools.
    I will not be able to attend the webinar, because I use Linux (Ubuntu) as my main platform, and the announcement didnt give me time to clear some of my schedule.
    I would be very interested in a recording, and also any future sessions, maybe Linux accessible, and with more advanced notification.
    until soon, and keep it up!

    Please try to find a meeting solution that works on linux.

    I have used Webex that supports all the systems. It is not bad but probably expensive.

    Please try to use something compatible with linux next time. I’ve used WebEx in the past and works ok. Maybe is expensive…
