Topic: Python Fundamentals
Presenter: Joey Bernard
Python is growing in popularity, both as a teaching language and in scientific computing. Come find out about the basics of Python, including some of the uses that it is being put to. Also, we'll take a look at ipython, a great tool for playing around with Python when trying to figure out a solution to a problem.
Joey Bernard works as a high performance consultant, helping research do computational science. This requires being a jack-of-all-trades in terms of programming languages and software utilities. He also writes a monthly column for Linux Journal on scientific software, and writes occasional tutorials for Linux User and Developer.

Note that the examples in the slides are written using Python 2.x.
Joey prefers to use the earlier version is that the third party modules that he uses have yet to be rewritten for 3.x.
