June EPD Webinar: Parallel Processing with iPython

We see our EPD Webinar sessions as a great venue for us to provide subscribers with personalized support. Is there a particular challenge you’ve encountered while using EPD? Do you feel like it would be helpful for us to walk you through a process? We encourage you to submit your questions ahead of time so that we can prepare materials and demos to meet your needs.The webinar format enables us to respond to your questions (either by chat or VOIP, depending on your preference) and share our screen to provide examples and demonstrations. We feel that this could become an invaluable channel of communication for EPD users, and are excited to see how it progresses.July’s webinar will be held next Thursday at 1pm to accomodate Independence Day weekend. We plan to give an overview and demonstration of parallel processing with iPython, as we’ve seen the tremendous utility of this EPD feature overlooked in the past. Once again, however, if you have a special topic that you’d like to have addressed, feel free to write us an e-mail to tell us what content you’d like to have covered in Thursday’s session.
