Wes McKinney: Announcing Ursa Labs: An Innovation Lab for Open Source Data Science


Wes McKinney builds the future. He's the creator of pandas, and has spent the past several years working on Apache Arrow. This article is a bit about his journey, but more about what he's building next: Ursa Labs. In short, Ursa Labs' goal is to build an entire data science ecosystem on top of Arrow. Pretty freaking ambitious.

I'll leave it to him to explain the details. I find Wes's vision of the future to be very compelling. Apparently Hadley Wickham does too; he's signed on as a technical advisor.
