I'm speaking at MongoDB Boston. My talk is about visualizing weather data using Python, MongoDB, and other open source tools. Here's some links if you saw my talk and want more information.

NumPy: The fundamental data format for scientific computing in Python:

SciPy: A huge collection of fast algorithms for analyzing NumPy data:

MatPlotLib: A charting library of vast capabilities, works great with NumPy arrays:

Monary: This is a high-performance driver that queries MongoDB and stores the data directly in NumPy arrays:

Our Example App: All the code for loading and analyzing NOAA's weather data:

Postscript: near my hotel, Boston's Trinity Church is absurdly juxtaposed with The Hancock:

Trinity Church and The Hancock

It reminds me of Christ Church Cathedral in Montréal, which I photographed six years ago. It's similarly dominated by a glass box:
