The world hardly needs yet another tutorial on statistical computing with Python, but I made one for a live demo and I might as well post it. Also, the IPython Notebook makes me happy.

In a very loose sense, the topics are:

- what packages are in the Python statistical computing ecosystem
- how to install Python packages
- generating and plotting very simple data
- ordinary least squares
- reading and summarizing data with pandas
- 3D plotting with matplotlib
- applying algorithms from scikit-learn
- resorting to R functions (if necessary) with Rpy2
