Python Ireland February meetup

Hi all,

Fergal Reid will be giving a talk this month. The location will be confirmed shortly, but most likely will be the Science Gallery from 6:30pm followed by a pub meetup in O'Neills at 8pm.

Title: Introduction to basic bayesian methods, from first principles, using Python.

Description: This talk will introduce the basic principles of bayesian statistics, starting off from scratch.  We'll start by introducing the simple ideas behind the bayesian approach, and quickly develop these ideas to the point where they can be used to do simple AB-testing.  Full Python code will be provided at every step, so that its easy for programmers to understand.

If the talk goes well, you'll come out with a good overview of the basic ideas of bayesian statistics. Depending on time and interest we might even see some code for more advanced ideas like MCMC methods.


Looking forward to seeing you there.


Venue thanks to The Science GalleryThe Science Gallery is a world first. A new type of venue where today's white-hot scientific issues are thrashed out and you can have your say. A place where ideas meet and opinions collide. --

We would also like to thank Intercom for sponsoring our group.

    Thanks to all those who cam along, it was great to see so many people given the slightly windy circumstances. Want to see what I'm organising or planning, I have a google calendar on I'm open to suggestions on what else to run, and when.

    As Diarmuid mentioned, PyConIE Call for Sponsors will be launched this weekend.

    Python Ireland has an open call for speakers for our upcoming talks, open slots from June onwards. So don't be shy, everyone! ;-)

    Gonna re-iterate this on a PyIE blog post because "Everything is Awesome!!!" -- if you have seen The Lego Movie, you know this song.
