Slides from my NYCPython meetup talk last night, "A look inside pandas design and development". Lot of fairly gory but important technical details about how many performance-critical operations are implemented. Will probably produce some follow-up blog articles going into more detail / exposition on these topics. Enjoy

New blog post on recent high performance database join work in pandas to be part of the upcoming 0.7.0 release. Very impressive numbers compared with various R packages and SQLite3.

Posted to Hacker News, but the upvotes don't count if I link to it here :)

Awesome new "What's New" page in the pandas documentation linking new features to GitHub issues/pull requests and relevant sections in the documentation. Thanks to +Adam Klein for helping me put this together, going to try to keep it updated going forward with all the upcoming releases. Still a ton more (v)benchmarking to do

PyData workshop, March 2012, Santa Clara

The estimable +Julie Steele, +Peter Wang, +Wes McKinney and +Travis Oliphant have banded together to create a two-day workshop for data scientists interested in Python, and Pythonistas interested in data.

It's the perfect Python+Data sandwich, as we've timed the event to continue after Strata Santa Clara http://strataconf.com/strata2012 and over the weekend preceding PyCon 2012, also in Santa Clara https://us.pycon.org/2012/.

Google are generously hosting the event, and there's space for 50 attendees. It's sure to be popular, so sign up soon! Fri-Sat March 2-3. Check out the link below for the program.
