I am an Aerospace Engineer at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies studying for my M.A.Sc. in nanosatellite technology in collaboration with the UTIAS Space Flight Laboratory. I have been using free and open-source software on the desktop since 2000, and installed my first Linux OS at the tender age of 17. I have been using Ubuntu off and on since Warty, and have been using it as my only OS since Dapper.

During a summer job at an Engineering firm in Ontario, I helped develop a web-based application for the local intranet that managed problem reports (bugs), scheduling, and other aspects of the hardware design process. An emphasis was placed on using free and open-source software and tools as well as generating standards-compliant output. This helped to spurn my growing interest in open-source.

The PyPE environment should allow for multiple modes of operation, including (but not limited to) exhaustive test campaigns[1], individual solution module tests (run a single problem solution), and user-input test modules (i.e. for users to test their own solutions, tracking pass/fail status and performance characte...
The problem statement may be found here: http://projecteuler.net/index.php?section=problems&id=53 In summary, the goal is to determine how many values of `n choose r`, for 1<=n<=100, are greater than 10^6. The PyPE solution to this problem uses the relation between Pascal's Triangle and binomial coefficients; namel...
