Hi everyone... interested in knowing more about your activities? Can anyone let me know what is the main purpose of this room?
Hey @evaristoc, it's one of several ways to get in touch with the course creators/maintainers to ask questions
There's a forum on our openedx platform at openedx.seas.gwu.edu that supports math typesetting but doesn't send notifications, so sometimes it's easier to get our attention here
And the course itself is an introduction to numerical methods for discretizing and solving partial differential equations using Python
@gforsyth Thanks for your quick answer! I didn't know about numeric-mooc. Found it listed in Gitter for people with interest in DataScience topics. It seems that the project is of free access ( :+1: !!). I hope you won't mind if I explore it? I just quickly registered in order to go through the content and decide whether it suits my personal interest and resources. Please let me know in case that was inappropriate?
Sounds an exciting revision/new topic MOOC by the way...
Hey @evaristoc -- yep, it's all free and open. The github repo has a series of modules, each consisting of a pile of jupyter notebooks and the idea is that you can learn Python and numerical methods in tandem. The course has no end-date, we just keep it running. We do also teach a "traditional" course in the Fall and that's often when we add new material to the course. Definitely explore and use it! That's what it's for! If you have any questions or problems, let us know. Do ping us here if you post on the forums so we know to come and answer.
I am reading the material but I am quiet confused with those equations , and all those things are too much to digest.
PSA: the folks at gryd are opened up a free tier for students (seems to require .edu emails). https://gryd.us/ .
Hello all! I am new to gitter forum - I'm about to lay down some info about myself for the purposes of being led in the right direction, so please bear with me :)
I have a minimal education in computer science (associates) and am a law school graduate - I am completely obsessed with blockchain developments. What might be an entry-level coding environment to start out with regarding non-relational databases? Mainly for the purposes of compiling and pulling relevant info to expedite regulatory reporting requirements (ouuu exciting ;))
I am unfamiliar with database functions as they operate on the blockchain.

You’re posting in the wrong place. This Gitter is about a course in numerical methods with Python.
Hello I am trying to find the minimum for a function, but the inputs are in ranges not continuous, so ranging from 0-1. So something like gradient descent won't work, is there a method that can cope with this ?
