Python is a modern general purpose programming language that is popular in scientific computing for its readable syntax and extremely rich ecosystem of scientific and mathematical modules. The morning section will provide an introduction to some widely used packages, including common idioms for manipulating and visualizing data. The afternoon section will cover advanced modules and techniques relevant to high performance computing.
Topics will include efficient data processing with NumPy and Scipy, data visualization, and techniques for using python to drive parallel supercomputing tasks.
