Talk Monday

The Astropy Project is a community effort to develop a single core package for Astronomy in Python and foster interoperability between Python astronomy packages. In this talk I will give an introduction to the project, including an overview of progress so far, and I will outline our current plans for the future. I will also describe the Astropy coordinated and affiliated package ecosystem, which is formed by Python packages that are not part of the core package but integrate with Astropy, and are maintained by the Astropy team and the wider community.
