The Name

Cassiny is a misspelling of Giovanni Domenico Cassini, an astronomer who discovered the four moons of Saturn and noted the division of its rings. Cassini is also the name of a NASA/ESA/ASI mission, specifically the Cassini-Huygens mission, Cassini being the name of the probe and Huygens the name of the lander. The mission was started in 2004. Mission Objective: to study Saturn and its moons.

Our Mission

To help you, your team, your company and/or group to analyse data, conduct reproducible research and experiment with notebooks. Use to inspire and implement solutions using data to make the World just that little bit better.

Go further

If there were one phrase which described us perfectly it would be "Go further": we cultivate and strive for curiosity, to make the apparently impossible (or, perhaps, just very hard!), possible, and consider everything a draft so as to avoid being bogged down by pernickety perfectionism.

We believe in Open Source

Cassiny is freely available on github under the Apache 2.0 license.


If we do the same things everyday, how can we expect to mature? How can we challenge ourselves if we constantly face the same situations? Nature knows this well, and teaches us that there is no evolution without diversity. At Cassiny, we don't just hope for diversity, we actively seek it out.

Intelligent Stubbornness

If we decide to do something, we go for it - no excuses, no complaints, and no delays. If the situation evolves, we stop, reflect and adapt, and if we fail, we start the process again, improving on what we did before.


People have too many choices to make these days: not to say that we dream of a communist market, or that we think people are too dumb to make choices for themselves - but, rather, that choosing requires mental effort (check this Ted talk), and avoiding useless complexity can only make our life simpler. At the end of the day, we truly believe that "Just enough is more".

Enjoy what you do

Have you ever had the feeling that you would rather stay in bed under your duvet than start working? We have our duties, things we have to get done, and sometimes pain-in-the-ass issues to resolve, but overall, work ought to be enjoyable on a day-to-day basis (taken directly from Let My People Go Surfing).
