SciPyCamp Syllabus

Document Actions
The outline of SciPyCamp, the follow-on week to Advanced PyCamp. The organization of topics in which you will apply Python to scientific problems. This organization is unique compared to other course outlines. Rather than rote recitation of techniques before applying them to problem solving, you will learn the Pythonic way of programming by examining solutions to common programming problems.
