This page is my "blog".
It's just a place to leave some thoughts and things that are going on. Some will be about software, some about humans and some about both. I'll try not to post about the brand of my new toothbrush unless it's really important :-)

I just spent a weekend in Paris, to attend the fourth European Scientific Python conference.
- A very nice and talented crowd of roughly 160 people. It was very well-organised, many thanks to the team who made it happen.
- Python has come a long way. I learned that Python detected the latest, scientifically sensational, Supernova explosion and will command an on-board camera in a robot on Mars in 2016.
- I presented my simulation framework Nicessa on a poster and decided to give a short lightning talk about this vision of independent layers which seem to evolve in this community (Nicessa can be the middle layer):
- On the train ride back, I happened to sit next to Ralf Gommers, one of the few major SciPy contributors, by coincidence. Pretty interesting, not only because I actually started using SciPy in a research project very recently.
