PyDataLondon 4th Meetup - Data Mining for Good and High Performance Python

This is our 4th meetup, more details to follow. Pivotal continue to be lovely with the hosting, beer and pizza are provided by Pivotal (thanks!).


Ian Ozsvald "The High Performance Python Landscape" - updated talk now I've finished my book on the state of High Performance Python computing, with a view on what's convenient and maintainable that'll make your life easier

Dirk Gorissen - "How data, Python, and you can help 22.3 million people in Tanzania (almost half the population) get better access to clean water." - based on Dirk's recent travels to Tanzania working on a real-world data science problem

Matt Sundquist - "Plotly: Collaborative Python Plotting", Plotly lets you collaboratively make interactive plots with Plotly's Python API, matplotlib, MATLAB, and R. In this demo we'll look at how to build web-based 2D, 3D, and streaming graphs in an IPython Notebook

We'll have Lightning Talks as usual. After the event we'll go to the pub downstairs and discuss the Want/Need cards that are written during the night. Here's a write-up of our 3rd event.

UPDATE we're joining the London Python Usergroup folk in the pub (The William Blake) from about 9pm, if you're on the wait-list you're most welcome to join us all with the speakers in the pub. Antonio is bringing his folk over from 8pm, we'll join them when we're done so there will be Pythonistas in the pub from 8.30pm through the night. The pub is usually empty so we should be pretty obvious :-)

    The blog has related stuff like pure-web explorers, video about Benoit, discussions on higher dimensional "complex" numbers, the ebook too, errata, etc

    If you want to learn more about Taarifa, the project presented by Dirk tonight, head to http://taarifa.org or straight to the code: https://github.com/taarifa/TaarifaWaterpoints

    We're looking for people to get involved either with code contributions, user testing or general UI/design.

      I really like your talk yesterday, and as Dirk Gorissen said yesterday, there might be an strighforward application of your app to fields like epidemiology or water quality control. I have recently read a book called "Toms Rive: http://www.amazon.com...;­ about cancer epidemiology and water pollution by chemical industry (the book tells about the 1850's cholera epidemic in London you quoted yesterday). The book explain how maps can be used to look for disease clusters associated to water or air pollution. Again, great talk and amazing job! Good luck with the project!

    Got a coding test that I need to cram in (yay) and won't be able to join my fellow S2DSonians tonight (bummer).
    Enjoy everyone!

    Will these just be talks or will there also be practical elements?

    August 29, 2014

    • Ian O.

      Hi Sam. Good to meet you at euroscipy. As discussed - no practical elements, just 3 talks.

    Hi! I'm struggling with the technology to remove myself from the waiting list :-/ I think I've done it properly, but not certain.

      You've removed yourself, thanks.
