Abstract Ondrej Certik, Mateusz Paprocki, Aaron Meurer Description SymPy is a library for symbolic mathematics (i.e., a computer algebra system) in Python. In this tutorial, we will introduce SymPy from scratch. We will show the basics of SymPy, such as how to define expressions, manipulate them, common gotchas, how to ...
Abstract Presenter: Valentin Haenel Description This tutorial is a hands-on introduction to the two most basic building-blocks of the scientific Python stack: the enhanced interactive interpreter IPython and the fast numerical container Numpy. Amongst other things you will learn how to structure an interactive workflow for scientific computing and how ...

Abstract We describe the architecture of an application designed to enhance social interactions at conference gatherings by integrating data from online social networks and from wearable proximity sensors. The pipeline that processes the stream of sensor data and provides proximity-based services is implemented in Python and Twisted, and has been ...
Abstract Web developers everywhere have heard of minifying Javascript and CSS to decrease asset sizes and make Web pages load faster. With Python we can go beyond minification using genetic algorithms to compress CSS. Using the tinycss library we can apply a bipartite algorithm to any stylesheet to beat standard ...
Abstract Pony is an object-relational mapper implemented in Python. It allows writing advanced SQL queries using plain Python in the form of a generator expression. This way queries look very concise. Pony implements the IdentityMap pattern, offers a solution for N+1 select problem, and has a visual editor for models.
Abstract **We Have, We Need** is a student-led project at the University of California, San Diego. WHWN is a supply-sharing and communication platform created for humanitarians and NGOs in disaster/crisis zones, currently targeted toward relief efforts in Haiti. Come learn how we cope with issues like frequent developer turnover, limited ...
Abstract Biomedical ontologies are large, graphical data structures that describe concepts in biology and medicine. An ongoing area of research is determining how to integrate these from different sub-domains, since they are too large to integrate by hand. This describes an elaborate approach using machine learning and distributed computing, implemented ...
Abstract No matter what type of investor you are, short term swing trader or long term fundamentalist, we all agree that data is an important element to making a financial decision. This poster will outline the details of how one can use Python and Scipy to collect and analyze data ...
Abstract This year I've reverse engineered two HTTP/Web enabled devices and written python clients for them. The Belkin Wemo [1] and the Philips Hue [2]. My poster session will cover methods materials and work. [1] http://www.issackelly.com/blog/2012/08/04/wemo-api-hacking/ [2] http://www.issackelly.com/blog/2012/11/10/philips-hue-api-hacking/
Abstract Serpint is software for controlling the GPIO pins on a Raspberry Pi over a socket or serial port. It can be used to control the GPIO pins from languages that don't already have a GPIO library, but do for sockets or serial, or from programs that expect a serial ...
Abstract The idea of having a web-configurable web/application server with virtualhosting support using the best Python-based tools to integrate into the company toolset for the development team has always been intriguing to me. This tool tries to create a complete webserver enabling easy deployment of apps on on-premises hardware for ...
Abstract For the creation of visualization programs there are a number of free and commercial tools and libraries. In a heterogeneous environment it points out that there is no universal solution that covers the specific needs in a scientific environment. GR is a framework for cross-platform visualization applications ranging from ...
Abstract Discover how in four months I went from insecure beginner to happy writer of a GUI toolkit documentation!
Abstract R has become hard to avoid when working with data; there is hardly a method in statistics or visualization that is not available, and there are many methods that are originally only available in R. The Python-to-R bridge opens the whole library of R functions, classes, and datasets to ...
Abstract edX.org is building XBlock, an open-source component architecture for courseware. It provides API's for creating course components of all kinds. Possible uses include: simple controls, new types of problems, new quiz structures, interactive simulations, and new navigation techniques. We're hoping to expand awareness of XBlock, and also to hear ...
Abstract For a recent project, I had to develop a real time diagnostics tool with a web dashboard. The goal of this tool was to assist data experts with proactive monitoring and trouble-shooting our equipment deployed in the field. So I decided to design a real time web dashboard with ...
