Blaze, BLZ, and dynd

Date Time: Travis Oliphant

dynd is a C++ library for dynamic, multi-dimensional arrays. Blaze is an out-of-core library for doing array-oriented computing on a large disk with an eye toward distributed computing. This sprint will be for those interested in helping with the next generation NumPy. Continuum Analytics developers will be available to help people interested in working on 1) the extensible type-system to replace dtypes, 2) adding more Blaze Functions (like generalized ufuncs but deferred), 3) working on the persistence layer (BLZ), and 4) fleshing out the distributed array layer.
