Prof. Barba gave keynote at SciPy 2014
The Scientific Python conference was held in Austin, TX, July 6–12, with around 500 attendees. SciPy is a community dedicated to the advancement of scientific computing through open source Python software for mathematics, science, and engineering. The conference this year had two specialized tracks: scientific computing in education, and geospatial data in science. Prof. Lorena Baba gave the opening keynote, addressing the pedagogical value of interactive computing in engineering education.
