Details

Come join PYPTUG at out next monthly meeting (May 29th 2018) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also a tool that no expert would do without.

The meeting will start with a back to basics introduction on lists, arrays and other similar data types.

Then on to the main talk:

"Exploratory Visualization of Data and Text"

by Francois Dion

Abstract:
What can you learn from visualizing your data? What techniques should you use for a given scenario? If you've missed the presentation at the Renaissance Computing Institute last month, you have another opportunity to learn about various tools. As an extra bonus we will touch a little bit of machine learning.

Lightning talks!

We will have some time for extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration. If you'd like to do one, some suggestions of talks were provided here, if you are looking for inspiration. Or talk about a project you are working on.
