SciPy.org the Site
scipy.org is a community site. The term "SciPy" means different things depending on the context. Here are some of the representations and various (at times, concurrent) meanings:
SciPy.org (or scipy.org):
- Scientific Python:
Python library by Konrad Hinson not related to SciPy, but having similar goals. See the home page for more info.
About the scipy.org domain
The scipy.org domain is owned and hosted by Enthought, Inc., who supports and promotes the development of several Open Source initiatives. The original site was launched February 19, 2001--before Enthought was even founded--as a first act of a fledgling entity and its collaborators. Other subdomains hosted at scipy.org are for projects promoting scientific work in python. Enthought's contribution to these projects is limited; from simple hosting of their web site to interested observation. All these projects (much like SciPy, now) are the products of their respective authors and community:
ipython.scipy.org: The python interactive shell--accept no substitutes.
mpi4py.scipy.org: Python MPI implementation]
neuroimaging.scipy.org: or NiPy, as it is known--functional imaging data analysis tool.
numpy.scipy.org: The Official NumPy site.
pyxg.scipy.org: Python interface to Apples XGrid.
sage.scipy.org: Mirror site for the excellent SAGE project (Software for Algebra and Geometry Experimentation).
swc.scipy.org: Software Carpentry site with excellent course material for an "intensive introduction to basic software development practices for scientists and engineers."
wavelets.scipy.org: Libraries for wavelets-based algorithms in Python.
