Canopy v1.2 is released. We've added Python Tools for Visual Studio (PTVS) integration, Mavericks support, Qt tools and lots of fixes and other tidbits: http://bit.ly/K2xY2J
Author: Jason McCampbell. Canopy 1.2 is out! The release of Mac OS “Mavericks” as a free update broke a few features, primarily IPython, so we held the release to try to make sure everything worked. That ended up taking longer than we wanted, but 1.2 is finally out and adds support for Mavericks ...

Nice article. For the "how" I recommend py.test. It allows Python tests to be written without creating a class with methods, just functions with a simple naming convention.

Check it out:

Kurt Smith's recent advanced Cython webinar is up on the Enthought blog: http://bit.ly/18KH3VX. How to use the new typed memoryviews.
Author: Kurt Smith Webinar_screenshot. Typed memoryviews are a new method for accessing memory buffers, such as NumPy arrays, without any Python overhead. This makes them very useful for manipulating memory in Cython functions as there's no call into C APIs, just direct memory manipulation.

PyMC3 looks intriguing: http://bit.ly/1adcqq8
In this blog post I will talk about: How the Bayesian Revolution in many scientific disciplines is hindered by poor usability of current Probabilistic Programming languages. A gentle introduction to Bayesian linear regression and how it differs from the frequentist approach.

I decided I wanted to buy a Honda Fit. Looking online, the reviews seemed better for Howdy Honda, so I headed over. Andres Mendez met me at the door and helped me test drive a Fit in exactly the style I wanted. Then he got my old Honda appraised, choose a color and options. For the deal itself I worked with Thano, the sales manager. He was quite personable and, probably sensing it's what I wanted, we got straight to the numbers and worked something out pretty quickly. Thano was very nice to work with. Then Andres helped me work through the rest of the process: paperwork, contacting the insurance company to get the new Fit on the policy, making sure the car (just arrived at the lot that morning) was ready and offering to help me clean out the old van. He was great to work with. So, Howdy worked really well for me. Lots of selection, straight-forward bargaining and a smooth process overall. I'll send my friends there if they are looking for a car.
