    [Blog] Entrepreneurial Geekiness: Slides for High Performance Python tutorial at EuroSciPy2014 + Book signing!

    Yesterday I taught an excerpt of my 2 day High Performance Python tutorial as a 1.5 hour hands-on lesson at EuroSciPy 2014 in Cambridge with 70 students:

    IMG_20140828_155857

    We covered profiling (down to line-by-line CPU & memory usage), Cython (pure-py and OpenMP with numpy), Pythran, PyPy and Numba. This is an abridged set of slides from my 2 day tutorial, take a look at those details for the upcoming courses (including an intro to data science) we’re running in October.

    I’ll add the video in here once it is released, the slides are below.

    I also got to do a book-signing for our High Performance Python book (co-authored with Micha Gorelick), O’Reilly sent us 20 galley copies to give away. The finished printed book will be available via O’Reilly and Amazon in the next few weeks.

    If you want to hear about our future courses then join our low-volume training announce list. I have a short (no-signup) survey about training needs for Pythonistas in data science, please fill that in to help me figure out what we should be teaching.

    I also have a further survey on how companies are using (or not using!) data science, I’ll be using the results of this when I keynote at PyConIreland in October, your input will be very useful.

    Here are the slides (License: CC By NonCommercial), there’s also source on github:

    [Blog] NixonMcInnes: Weekly improv drop in classes at NixonMcInnes – every Friday lunchtime.

    Thanks to Poster Boy on Flickr

    It’s clear that in the 21st century, businesses and individuals need to be present, flexible, responsive, confident and aligned to a core purpose more than they ever have.

    These are some of the guiding principles of improvised comedy – being in the moment, listening, responding quickly and with clarity, working in teams and producing something beautiful – all with a single goal of creating something together, in the moment.

    These are skills that can be learned through improv workshops and these are skills I will be sharing here at NixonMcInnes every Friday lunchtime at midday. This, as well as an opportunity to come together, laugh (a lot) and share knowledge.

    Anyone is welcome to join us and over the coming weeks and months, some of the themes we will be looking at are:

    • Agreement
    • Listening
    • Commitment
    • Team work
    • Creativity
    • Saying Yes
    • Resilience
    I will also theme workshops if there are requests for specific skills to be worked on.

    The format will be a fun, immersive improvisation workshop – taking key improv theatre, comedy and stagecraft tactics and drawing out applications that can be applied to groups and organisations in the world around us. I also hope that people will find them personally fulfilling and provide a creative release!

    We’d love it if you can join us – just let us know via twitter or drop Matt an email on matt.matheson@nixonmcinnes.co.uk so we have an idea of numbers.

    There is no fee, we just ask you to come with an open mind and an open heart :)

    So come down, drop in and find out why improvisation is one of the most important skills we’ll need in the world around us now and in the future.

    [Blog] Richard Mitchelson illustrator, animator, tea drinker...: The Homeward Round


    A year ago I started running.

    With a young family the amount of time I had to cycle vast distances suddenly disappeared and I was also entered into a half marathon so thought some sort of running would be a good idea. I was able to get a lot of lung busting exercise out of not a lot of time which was a real bonus. With such stunning hills and views on my doorstep I soon found I loved the early morning run out onto the South Downs, the freedom of just grabbing a pair of shoes and exploring the local trails and nooks and crannies of my local area was [still is] really addictive.

    I love to document my runs with a photo or two. My thought were that if I think this is breath taking some one else might... and they did. So much so that I decided to take the plunge and invite a group of friends from the real and digital world [all with a passion for running and the outdoors] on a guided 13 mile ish run around and over each of the hills I can see from my bedroom window. The Homeward Round was born.

    It's not a race, it's free, no one ever get's left behind. We are a group of friends who run to enjoy the journey not how fast or brutally we smash it... [that's for other days]

    I also used the chance to come up with some sort of logo and branding. All the photos are taken by me out on the trails or hills of Sussex. The logo was something I wanted to be as simple as possible, the square being home, and the dotted line the route we would take around it. That's it. I'm really pleased with it and peoples response has been fantastic.

    The first Homeward Round went really well, have a read of Becca Langton's write up here. The second one is currently in the works, with the hope some new faces will pop along as we hit Stanmer Park and other Sussex woodland. I'm saying October... But watch this space for the actual date.
