**Array programming with NumPy—the NumPy paper**
(via)
The NumPy paper is out, published in Nature. I found this enlightening: for an academic paper it’s very understandable, and it filled in quite a few gaps in my mental model of what NumPy is and which problems it addresses, as well as its relationship to the many other tools in the scientific Python stack.

**Pyodide: Bringing the scientific Python stack to the browser**
(via)
More fun with WebAssembly: Pyodide attempts (and mostly succeeds) to bring the full Python data stack to the browser: CPython, NumPy, Pandas, Scipy, and Matplotlib. Also includes interesting bridge tools for e.g. driving a canvas element from Python. Really interesting project from the Firefox Data Platform team.

**Super Fast String Matching in Python**
(via)
Interesting technique for calculating string similarity at scale in Python, with much better performance than Levenshtein distances. The trick here uses TF/IDF against N-Grams, plus a CSR (Compressed Sparse Row) scipy matrix to run the calculations. Includes clear explanations of each of these concepts.

**Python in the Scientific World**.
Python continues to make strides in the scientific world—and the Hubble Space Telescope team have been using it for 10 years!
