It's been a pretty fun week for +yt Project.

We pulled in support for non-Cartesian coordinate plotting, including spherical and cylindrical, and I also just put in a pull request for geographic coordinates -- first applied to plotting some neat tomographic models of magma plumes.

+Sam Skillman and +John Zuhone were at a workshop this week where they re-engineered the FITS frontend to manage very large datasets, and +Sam Skillman even added support for splitting along an axis to represent different fields!

+Nathan Goldbaum added non-CGS unit registries, +Kacper Kowalik loaded up our unit registry with all the planets, and Ben Keller and +Gabriel Altay keep adding awesome N-body stuff.  +Hilary Egan is doing really incredible stuff with halo finding, too.

Wow!  I'm so honored to get to work with all these people on such exciting (and fun!) stuff.

A successful half-week spent hacking with +Matthew Turk on +yt Project and PyNE at the University of Wisconsin! This time we were able to render surfaces intersections from a MOAB mesh. This notebook/video shows a fly-through of an ITER wedge. Thanks for hosting Engineering Physics / Astro. Depts!

Here is an extended version of the +yt Project render of a CT scan for the Neurodome project. The brain shows up pretty weakly in the CT scan, +Jeffrey SubbaRao  did a nice job pulling it out. +Jonathan A. Fisher +Patrick McPike

We've been doing a lot of work over at the +yt Project in preparation for release 3.0. Though the code is still in a very bleeding-edge state, many folks have been using it for analysis and visualization. 

Up until now, it has only been possible to run yt on Unix-like platforms such as Linux and OS X. A number of months ago, I took on a challenge to install yt on Windows (not because I need it in any way, but I thought it would be fun to see if I could get it to work). Using +Continuum Analytics Anaconda Python distribution, this is now possible. 

If you have a Windows machine with the Anaconda Python distribution (with Python 2.7) and you want to try yt-3.0 alpha out on it, you can go to my Binstar page for yt-3.0, or install the binary from the command line using conda:

conda install -c https://conda.binstar.org/jzuhone yt

Caution: as this version is still in an alpha state, there may be bugs and other weird behavior. Please report any issues at http://bitbucket.org/yt_analysis/yt/issues, and for documentation for this version visit http://yt-project.org/docs/dev-3.0/.

Just an informal discussion time to talk about what's going on, update each other, figure out some next steps, and maybe triage some trello boards.

This will be a sprint where we'll work on rebranding according to YTEP-0019.

Story
Tagline
Astrophysical simulation analysis and visualization
Introduction

The yt project aims to produce an integrated science environment for collaboratively asking and answering astrophysical questions. To do so, it will encompass the creation of initial conditions, the execution of simulations, and the detailed exploration and visualization of the resultant data. It will also provide a standard framework based on physical quantities interoperability between codes.

Development of yt is driven by a commitment to Open Science principles as manifested in participatory development, reproducibility, documented and approachable code, a friendly and helpful community of users and developers, and Free and Libre Open Source Software.
