What we're about

ODSC brings together the open-source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.

The focus of this Meetup group is to allow ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open-source community.

Who is this meetup for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualization developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision-makers from data-centric startups and large companies looking to utilize open-source tools

LIVE TRAINING: Practical Advanced Pandas

Online event

This is a PAID event. Registration is required: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/practical-advanced-pandas Instructor's bio: David Yerrington, Data Science Consultant at Yerrington Consulting. At the age of 8, David began learning the BASIC programming language while living in the outskirts of Alaska. He studied music performance but found the beginning of his career building a small software and consulting company in the late 90's. David’s career spans almost 20 years including many startups as a lead engineer, building scalable data services from prototype to production. During his time at Sony/Gracenote, leading the development of a handful of prototypes were featured multiple years in the Consumer Electronics Show, spanning problems with recommender systems, content classification, and profiling type problems. More recently, David was a data scientist at a YC backed dating app company researching and building scalable recommendation pipelines. Abstract: Knowing just enough Pandas can mean the difference between exploring and understanding data from a fundamental. Knowing how to transform data, use multi-indexes, and customize Pandas' visual aspects in Jupyter Lab gives you the power to approach everyday problems confidently. In this session, you will build on fundamentals you already know to handle a more comprehensive array of data problems. This session is for anyone who already has a solid foundation of Pandas fundamentals who wants to extend their knowledge with more advanced features, including aggregation, multi-indexing, designing transformations, and customizing DataFrame output. By the end of the course, participants will be able to: - Know how to configure Python environments - Understand the fundamentals of Pandas - Understand when to use Built-in vs. ".apply()" for data transformation - Be familiar with common multi-index use cases - Understand how to select data with multi-indexes - Describe which aspects of a DataFrame can be customized - Know how to write callback functions on DataFrame aesthetics Who will be interested in this course? This course is geared to data scientists, data engineers, machine learning engineers and software engineers of all levels who wish to gain a deep understanding of Pandas and how to apply it to real-world situations. Which knowledge and skills you should have? - Grouping - Selecting rows or columns of DataFrames with .loc, iloc - Boolean Indexing - Git and Github - Installing Python environments - Jupyter Lab What is included in your ticket? 1. Access to the live training and a QA session with the Instructor 2. Access to the on-demand recording 3. Certificate of completion Use discount code - Meetup2020 - to get an extra 10% off on your pass for Virtual Conference West.

Webinar: "Azure Machine Learning Notebooks and Experimentation User Interface"

To access this webinar, please register here: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/azure-machine-learning-notebooks-and-experimentation-user-interface Topic: Azure Machine Learning Notebooks and Experimentation User Interface Speaker#1: Abe Omorogbe, Program Manager at Microsoft https://www.linkedin.com/in/abeomor/ Abe Omorogbe - He is a Program Manager at Microsoft. He works within the AI Platform Group specifically on Azure Machine Learning - building exciting Machine Learning tools that make Data Scientist and ML Engineers more productive. Speaker#2: Shané Winner, Program Manager at Microsoft https://www.linkedin.com/in/shan%C3%A9-winner-0aab47117/ Shané Winner – She is a Program Manager at Microsoft on the Azure Machine Learning platform team focused on improving the user experience and productivity for Data Scientists doing Machine Learning. Abstract: The enhanced notebook editor in the Azure Machine Learning Studio enables members of Azure ML workspace to edit, share and collaborate on the notebooks in the same environment that contains their ML experiments, metrics, models, datasets, and more. With the new Studio Notebooks, Data Scientists are one link away from collaboration. We believe this simplicity of sharing will be especially welcome in today’s world of mandatory remote work. The new notebook editor is based on an open-source interact project and provides full compatibility with standard Jupyter. The editor also brings some best-in-class code editor features from VS Code that our customers know and love. For the first time, Data Scientists can use advanced features like full IntelliSense and inline error highlighting directly in their Jupyter notebooks. The Experiments UI in the Azure Machine Learning Studio enables users to inspect, analyze and troubleshoot their runs in the Azure ML workspace. With the new Cross-Experiment Run Comparison, Data Scientists can analyze their runs by graphically comparing and visualizing runs on the charts across some or all their experiments in a workspace. Users can also monitor their run progress, status and compare run performance which are essential tasks for both administrators and data scientists performing machine learning tasks. The new Custom Views allow users to customize their run analysis views and more effectively organize and keep track of their runs. The simplicity of sharing Custom Views allows for enhanced collaboration across colleagues and data scientist teams.
