 * Development frameworks (should be painless):
   * kdevelop for KDE
   * Anjuta for Gnome
 * Is Octave really usable? The main differences or missing features with respect to Matlab should be documented.
 * Easy and simple tools to plot data.
   * gnuplot
   * python is good at that
 * Necessity of a good Fortran integration

The goal for this page is to collect material around the ideas discussed at [[Helen Faulkner's talk http://dc5video.debian.net/2005-07-17/Using_Debian_for_science_research-Helen_Faulkner.mpeg]] at [wiki:?DebConf5Talks ["Debconf5"]].

Some ideas emerging from Helen's talk

(please complete)

  • We could settle a [http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/HOWTO_start_list [dedicated mailing list]]. debian-science ?

  • DebianScience could also be a [wiki:CustomDebian [CDD project]].

  • It could also be turned into a ["LiveCD"].
  • Development frameworks (should be painless):
    • kdevelop for KDE
