                        Intro on Using Python for Big Data

 An overview of the Python scientific computing stack, with a focus on
 working with very large datasets.  I'll try to introduce the most widely
 used libraries for scientific computing, Numpy and Scipy, discuss
 techniques for using them with big data, and touch on some of the machine
 learning techniques (and possibly libraries) for reducing large data into
 something manageable.  Then I'll go over how to make some of the most
 common data visualization tasks (plotting a time-series or mapped data
 using matplotlib) dynamic and web-based. 

 More Information: 

   * SciPy

   * matplotlib

 About Hannah Aizenman:
 Hannah Aizenman is working on a PhD in Computer Science at The Graduate
 Center, CUNY.  Her research is in using machine learning to make sense of
 and visualize large, mostly climate, datasets, and she's spent the past two
 summers writing related web apps.  Hannah's also a sometime NYLUG
 workshop/hacking society coordinator.

 Meeting Location:
     Please note that this meeting will be held at Google Chelsea Market Office
     at 75 Ninth Ave, 2nd Floor, NY, NY 10011.

 Swag (Give Away):
   During/after the meeting... unusually terrific swag may be given

   After the meeting ... You may wish to join up with other NYLUGgers
   for drinks and pub food.  This month we are trying McKennas Pub at
   250 West 14th Street.

 Coding Workshops/Hacking Society:
   This is a group of people that wants to learn about and work on coding
   in Python, Smalltalk, Ruby, C++, LaTeX, and other languages, and hack on 
   There will also be help given for those who wish to install Linux for the
   first time.
   Hardware hacking projects are also welcome, and we can also teach people
   the basics of hacking with Arduino and other open source hardware.
   Sometimes they go out to eat afterward.

   Bring something to show off and discuss!

   The workshops meet every other Tuesday, at the NY Public Library,
   Hudson Park Branch.  66 Leroy St. NY NY from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
   Next meetings are September 11, and September 25.
