Tutorials Day 1: Advanced NumPy

The advanced track tutorials kicked off today with Stéfan van der Walt's advanced NumPy tutorial, "Kittens and Dragons".

Among other things, he gave an "under the hood" introduction to the numpy.ndarray object, broadcasting and indexing tricks, an introduction to profiling Python code and visualizing your profiling results, a crash course in speeding up your code with Cython, and an example of using the array interface to expose foreign memory to NumPy.

His slides and code examples are now online.
