If you're interested in learning more about scientific programming in Python, and want to compete in a Pacman capture-the-flag tournament, join us for the next Advanced Scientific Programming in Python summer school in St. Andrew, UK!
The faculty line-up includes developers of well-known scientific libraries for Python (e.g., Francesc Alted of PyTables fame). The program covers advanced topics in numerical programming (advanced NumPy, Cython, parallel applications, data serialization, ...) and modern techniques for writing robust, efficient code (agile programming, test driven development, version control, optimization techniques, ...). Most of all, the school is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and have fun writing Python code together! Participation is free of charge, and you can apply online.
