The talk could be to present your current work, a topic that you just learned, the reason why you are attending PyData Bristol. As an example, these is a small list with the most mentioned topics from PyData Bristol community: machine learning, data visualisation, python, data science, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, deep learning, neural networks, business, to mention a few. Thanks in advance for your time! :)

What is PyData?

PyData provides a forum for the international community of users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The global PyData network promotes discussion of best practices, new approaches, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization. PyData communities approach data science using many languages, including (but not limited to) Python, Julia, and R.

Ovo Energy

Details We'd like to thank our hosts OVO Energy for providing the venue and Coefficient AI for sponsorship of the pizza and refreshments. Expect a pre-meet-up workshop, two 30-minute talks, two 5 minute lightning talks, community announcements and then the all-important networking over beers. ** Note: talks start at 7pm ** 1. Levi Wolf on "PySal" 2. Chris Mussel on "Agile and DevOps for Data Scientists" 3. James Yarrow on "TBC” If you would like to speak at a future event- please fill out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/8lsz1WA1986Ahbbs1 PRE-MEET-UP BEGINNERS WORKSHOP: ** From 5PM- bring a laptop! ** First Steps with pandas: Learn the basics of using Python to work with data. We will focus on pandas, a powerful and easy to use tool for data analysis and manipulation. You will learn how to load data, drill down and segment, aggregate up, pivot, visualise and write it out again. 📊 TALKS ========= 1. Levi Wolf on "PySal" Description coming soon! Levi is a geographic methodologist, focusing primarily on Bayesian spatial econometrics & psephology. He did his doctoral training in the southwest United States and is now an American expat living and working in Bristol. His dissertation focused on the process of gerrymandering, manipulation of electoral boundaries in pursuit of political advantage, which was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Doctoral Dissertation Enhancement Grant. Levi also consulted for startups in San Francisco and Brooklyn as a spatial data scientist, statistician, and data engineer. He is a political believer in free and open source software and works mainly in Python and Julia. He serves as co-maintainer of the Python Spatial Analysis Library, and lead author of Python cyberinfrastructure in geovisualization, exploratory data analysis, and Bayesian statistical modeling. Levi now works at University of Bristol as Senior Lecturer in Quantitative Human Geography and is continuing to improve and develop methods for spatial social modeling, statistical analysis, and spatial data science. 2. Chris Mussel on "Agile and DevOps for Data Scientists" This presentation is a crash course in what I've learnt from exploring the concepts of Agile Software Development and DevOps, and I'll aim to explain how each can help enhance a Data Science Team to develop and deploy quicker and more reliably, and ultimately spend more time doing Data Science! Chris is a former academic with a background in Chemistry and Computer Science from the University of Bristol, and has been working in data science/engineering for the last 10 years. He is passionate about Python, life long learning, solving problems, and building things that add value for others. And he is currently working as a Data Scientist at Malvern Panalytical, who are a leading provider of scientific instrumentation for the measurement of various chemical and elemental properties. ⚡️ LIGHTNING TALKS ===================== 1. James Yarrow on “TBC” 2. TBC 🕖 LOGISTICS ============== Talks kick off at 19:00 sharp; then beers in The Knights Templar pub from 21:00. If you realise you can't make it, please un-RSVP in good time to free up your place for your fellow community members.
