Upcoming events (5+)

Livestream: New York Python Meetup - Workshop On Public Speaking

This event will be Livestreamed: https://livestream.com/accounts/23925505/events/8582136 SPEAKER Dan Abrams spent the last five years running a video production company specializing in corporate livestreams. He spends much of his time directing executives unaccustomed to appearing on camera or giving a presentation to large crowds. ABSTRACT This workshop is unlike any you’ve likely taken before. No one will tell you to “don’t say ‘um’” or “don’t turn your back to the audience.” The goal instead is to help you become comfortable in front of an awesome and keep you from getting lost in your head. Using techniques borrowed from acting and improv comedy, you’ll get on your feet and learn how to remain calm, comfortable and in command of the audience.

Machine Learning on Source Code

Metis Seattle (Kaplan International English - Seattle)

Please sign in at the front door. ABSTRACT source{d} is building the open-source components to enable large-scale code analysis and machine learning on source code. Their powerful tools can ingest all of the world’s public git repositories turning code into ASTs ready for machine learning and other analyses, all exposed through a flexible and friendly API. Michael Fromberger will show you how to run machine learning on source code with a series of live demos. BIO Michael Fromberger is the Language Analysis Lead at source{d}. Prior to source{d}, Michael was a software engineer at Google, and technical lead/manager for the Kythe open source project (internally named Grok at Google).

Transitioning from PyData stack to PySpark with Big Data

Metis Seattle (Kaplan International English - Seattle)

Python is the de facto language for data science and machine learning, but the PyData stack (Pandas & SKLearn) can limit projects. Apache Spark is a world-class engine for transforming and modeling arbitrarily large data sets, and is largely based on the Pandas and SKLearn workflow. Even better, the PySpark interface allows for complex, big data workflows while still coding in Python. Join us to learn more about expanding your toolset, and learning about when big data on Spark might make sense for your workflow. Brendan Herger enjoys bridging the gap between data science and engineering, to build and deploy data products. He is a Senior Data Scientist at Metis. Brendan brings a unique combination of machine learning, deep learning, and software engineering skills. In his previous work at Capital One and startups, he has built authorization fraud, insider threat, and legal discovery automation platforms. In each of these cases he's lead a team of data scientists and data engineers to enable and elevate his client's business workflow (and capture some amazing data). When he's not knee deep in a code base, Brendan can be found traveling, sharing his collection of Japanese teas, and playing board games with his partner in Seattle.
