10-30 minute talks round 2
Victor Jakubiuk - DataNitro: Python offers state of the art scientific and mathematical libraries, while Microsoft Excel provides a familiar interface for tabular data. In this talk I will demonstrate how to effectively analyze data with Python and Excel using DataNitro. I will show how to programmatically handle workbooks, integrate Numpy into Excel and display Matplotlib charts in spreadsheets. Practical examples will be provided.
Andrew Hill (@andrewxhill) is the Senior Scientist at Vizzuality (http://vizzuality.com/) & CartoDB (http://cartodb.com/) where he works on mapping technology, data visualization, and other fun topics. Recent work he has been involved in include the PLUTO Data Tour (http://andrewxhill.github.io/cartodb-examples/scroll-story/pluto/index.html) and Living Cities (http://here.com/livingcities/). At the Data Wizards meetup, Andrew will talk about his work with CartoDB and his ideas about the relationship between data visualization and storytelling.
Jonathan Roberts - Clean.Data: We all spend hours of our time cleaning data: parsing PDFs, changing formats, understanding why lines of a file are all NaN. Clean.Data is a non profit initiative to solve this problem, and we'll be presenting at the White House Energy Datapalooza in the fall.
