Wednesday was geophysics day at SciPy 2014, the conference for scientific Python in Austin. We had a mini-symposium in the afternoon, with 4 talks and 2 lightning talks about posters.
All the talks
Here's what went on in the session...
- Matt Hall — Modelr seismic models
- Patrick Cole — PyGMI grav-mag modeling
- Joe Kington, Chevron — 3D seismic viz in Python
- Leo Uieda, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro — Fatiando poster preview (full 2013 talk)
- Rowan Cockett, UBC and 3pt Science — SimPEG poster preview
- Karl Schleicher — Prototyping geophysical algorithms
The talks should all be online eventually. For now, you can watch my talk and Joe's (awesome) talk right here...
- Here's a 31 TB file on the Internet, a dark matter simulation containing 1 trillion particles... that you can read from arbitrarily with a few lines of Python.
- There is so much interactive plotting awesomeness coming to Python: Plotly, Bokeh (right), mpld3... And collaboration is here too in the Jupyter coLaboratory.
Last thing... If you use the scientific Python stack in your work, please consider giving as generously as you can to the NumFOCUS Foundation. Support open source!
