I am a core developer on two projects that bring fast, interactive, and beautiful data visualization to Python: VisPy  and PyQtGraph . The scientific Python community desperately needs high performance visualization, and these projects need the community to learn about and support them. That is why I am bringing them to the SciPy 2015 conference in Austin (but not without your help).

These projects will make three appearances*: a 4-hour tutorial on PyQtGraph, a short presentation on VisPy, and a 2-day code sprint for both projects.

With your support, I will be transported hundreds of kilometers away at speeds only dreamed of for 99.9% of the history of the human race. I will bring my knowledge of blazing fast visualization and deposit it directly into the brains of hundreds of scientists, engineers, and Python enthusiasts. Most importantly, I will connect these open source projects with the audiences who need them, and the future communities who will support them.

Good news! Thanks to the combination of your donations and a scholarship from the NumFocus foundation and other SciPy sponsors, I am now fully funded to bring high performance graphics to the 2015 conference. My thanks go out to all who contributed to make this possible!

The VisPy presentation has been accepted, and although the PyQtGraph talk did not pass the first round of reviews, it may be accepted later on as some slots are expected to open up. Either way, there will also be a two-day sprint following the conference at which I hope to attract new users, developers, and community awareness to both projects.

The tutorial, unfortunately, was not accepted (but this is perhaps not surprising given that there are only 4 rooms allocated for tutorials).

Many thanks again for all who have supported these projects!
