Macs in Chemistry

Insanely Great Science

Scientific Programming

Apple have just highlighted the science and medicine section of the WWDC that takes place June 8-12 2009.
There are two session that you might want to put into your diary.
Lunchtime Session
Come hear Dennis Wingo of the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) discuss their use of Mac OS X technology to save our Space Race heritage

Science Coding Project
WWDC will feature a Science Coding Project for anyone interested in showing off what they’ve learned at the sessions with a fun, hands-on project. Come to the Coding Project area during session breaks to work with your peers on implementing the latest Mac OS X technologies to increase the performance and power of our open source project. You’ll get a chance to contribute your own coding expertise and implement your newly-found insights in a hands-on environment.

For those scientific programmers around Cambridge, UK you might be interested in this lecture at the Cavendish lab.
