Aoslib Code Sprint at AMS 2014

Jonathan Helmus is organizing a code sprint for aoslib at the AMS 2014 Python Symposium! Here are the details from an email Jonathan sent out to the mailing list


For those of you who will be at the upcoming AMS annual meeting in Atlanta, I would like to direct your attention to the Fourth Symposium on Advances in Modeling and Analysis Using Python taking place at the meeting.

Specifically, we would like to encourage you to attend the Aoslib Code Sprint on Tuesday Febuary 4th, 3:30-6:30 pm. At the sprint, we hope to help people set up a Scientific Python stack, become more familiar with contributing to open source projects, write code for aoslib (, and to discuss Python in general. Everyone is invited regardless of programming skills. Feel free to bring your programming and Python questions and problems.

If you are thinking of coming to the sprint, it would be great (although not required) if you could let me know via email ([email protected]) so that we can have an approximate head count. Also, if you do not already have a Scientific Python stack and you would like to help us save time and bandwidth at the sprint, we are recommending installing Continuum Analytics’ free Anaconda Python distribution. Downloads for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux are available at before arriving at the sprint. On Mac OS X, installing XCode and the command line utilities through iTunes would also be helpful. For a complete list of suggested software for the sprint, please visit

Hope to see you in Atlanta,
