​Writing gufuncs in Cython seems a quite advanced​ topic for a workshop,
but an interesting one indeed.  Numba also supports creating gufuncs (
http://numba.pydata.org/numba-doc/dev/reference/numpysupported.html), so
this perhaps may work as a first approach before going deeper into Cython.

​Not a message in particular, but perhaps it would be nice talking about
the temporaries removal ​in expressions that Julian implemented recently (
https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/7997) and that is to be released in
1.13.  It is a really cool (and somewhat scary) patch ;)

​It would be nice to attend and see you again, but unfortunately I am quite
swamped.  Will see.​

​Have fun in Barcelona!​
