This meeting will cover some of the latest tools for Histogramming, primarily in Python. We will cover the mpl-hep project, which is planning to add HEP utilities to matplotlib. We will cover the development of boost-histogram, a backend to Python histogram libraries that was developed on top of the new Boost::Histogram C++14 library, along with the development of the first user-focused Python library to be built on it, "hist". We will also cover the Aghast project, which provides a way to facilitate communication between histogram libraries.
