PyLadies Demo/Project Night

This is a casual environment for PyLadies of all levels to demo what they are working on. NO PROJECT IS TOO SMALL. If you don't have a project, come to work through some tutorials or get help starting a project. This is one tutorial that gives you a sampling of what you can do with python + data vis, python + APIs, and python + web scraping:

Olga Musayev | Neo4j

Kat Chuang | TBA

    @Priya: Thanks for walking us through how you initially framed the problem, how you adapted the scope later, and next steps (alternatives to D3 cloud, clustering?). +1 also for outlining technical difficulties you faced.
    Demo: subreddit discovery
    Tools used:
    PRAW (Python Reddit API Wrapper)
    google app engine
    D3 cloud

    @Olga: I couldn't have asked for a better presentation to introduce graph databases. Thank you for including clear code snippets! For those who want to learn more about graph dbs, Olga suggests dumping your Facebook connections into neo4j to get started.
    Demo: introduced the notion of a graph database by thinking about things in terms of nodes and edges instead of as entity-attribute relationships, in the context of analyzing product copurchases
    Tools used:
    neo4j
    Py2neo
    scipy

    Excited to see you tonight! We'll be in the Pivotal conference room from 6:30 - 8:30. Bring your laptop and come write some python codez.

    I'm starting to put my demo together and was wondering, should I talk more about high level things like designing an app and the workflow for developing, django vs flask web frameworks, or go into technical detail with the actual code and deploying on heroku or google app engine? I made 3 hobby projects within the last year that I could talk about:
    http://blooming-forest-4284.herokuapp.com/
    http://puertorico.herokuapp.com/
    http://style-buzz.appspot.com/

    I'm aiming for a 4-5minute talk and want to make sure I highlight stuff that you would be interested in. Can any of you who RSVP'd chime in on what you would like to learn about? Thanks!

      great suggestions, thanks!

      i was worried that there's too much content to cover, so including links to the other lectures is a great idea.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
