Why I SciPy
SciPy is many things to many people. It can be an opportunity to learn about the newest technologies or maybe old ones that you should have been using. It is a chance to learn about new and exciting features of the packages you use the most. SciPy is also a chance to reconnect to old friends and meet new ones. For many, it is also an opportunity to develop your skills as a scientific software developer and become a better scientist overall.
So what makes you SciPy? We are looking for a short paragraph explaining the reasons why you SciPy. Including specific instances or reasons why the conference has had a positive impact on your science are the best! For example,
I SciPy because it is a place where I can learn about new python packages I can leverage in my science and old packages I should have been using. I go to learn about new and exciting features of the packages I use the most. It is also about developing my own skills as a scientific software developer, learning about best practices and new ways to make my own work more effective. I of course go to see old friends and make new ones. Most of all, I SciPy to become a better scientist.
Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to Twitter or G+ using the hashtag #whyiscipy. We'll post the best submissions of the week to future mailings.
Looking forward to hearing your story!
