Description

The Nobel prize in economics recently went to Paul Romer, a convert from proprietary software like Matlab over to Python and the SciPy stack. Paul said, “The more I learn about proprietary software, the more I worry that objective truth might perish from the earth.”





That's quite the statement. But what if your organization is deeply committed to proprietary software such as Matlab? Don't despair because Peter Kazarinoff, a professor at Portland Community College is here to share his experience converting his courses over to Python and JupyterHub.
