The SciTools gang are in Nottingham for http://2013.foss4g.org/ and having lots of fun. I have found the conference really interesting so far. Well done to the Met Office for sponsoring the conference and being so supportive of the event.
Ed presented Iris and Cartopy this morning which was very well received.
We ran a workshop on using SciTools with the OSGeo tools on Tuesday, the material is available on https://github.com/SciTools/osgeolive. I thought this went really well.
Ian deserves a special mention for all his hard work on the conference organising committee: they have all done such a good job to put on an excellent conference for us.
