This group is a regular gathering of Python users and developers in the Canberra area. We discuss Python and related open source technologies. It is a networking forum for meeting other locals interested in Python and exchanging news and ideas.
If you do any kind of Python development, or have done, join the group! We'll keep you posted about our regular meetups. PyLadies (or potential pyladies) are particularly welcome to come and connect to the community.
If you'd like to give a talk at the next meetup, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doing data science in python? Struggling with large datasets? Learning a bit of Dask can help you work more efficiently. Dask extends existing tools you love: Pandas, Scikit-Learn, Numpy in a way that enables advanced parallelism across threads, processes and compute nodes of a distributed cluster. Dask gives you tools to scale your existing data workflows with minimal rewriting.
Dr. Kirill Kouzoubov has been using Python since 2.4 days, initially for data visualization tasks and for numerical compute prototypes (with C++/OpenCL being final implementation targets), these days using Python full-time for “data plumbing” and scientific compute.
