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.

PyData Global 2021 (GLOBAL ONLINE CONFERENCE)

Network event

Online event

The PyData Global Online Conference is where users, contributors, and newcomers can share experiences to learn from one another and grow together. PyData provides a virtual 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.

This three-day online event consists of talks, tutorials, and discussions to bring attendees the latest project features along with cutting-edge use cases.

The time span of the conference stretches beyond any single time zone, reflecting the global nature of our community. To accommodate our attendees, each session will be recorded and made available to attendees the following day. Following the Conference, all recordings will be posted to the PyData YouTube channel.

Automated Exploratory Data Analysis of Databases

Online event

Welcome to the next virtual event from PyData Edinburgh!
As always, this will last an hour, and we'll have a main talk plus a Q&A session at the end. The session starts at 18:30, use the Zoom link which will be provided in the registration email once you RSVP.

As always, let us know if you would like to give a talk in the future, whether a main or a lightning one, we're always looking out for speakers (as you know!). We've got some more volunteers for lightning talk, so if we get a couple more we'll be able to run an evening with just lightning talks, which would be great.

MAIN TALK: Automated Exploratory Data Analysis of Databases
=====================================================================

Diego will present some of the challenges of exploratory data analysis in data science and data engineering projects and how to approach them. He will show how to use the AEDA Python library (https://github.com/darenasc/aeda) developed by himself that helps with the exploration of new data sets from databases. The takeaways from the talk are: ideas and techniques to use for data exploration, how to use an automated solution to explore the content of databases and how to create a data catalogue, and also some recommendations of Python libraries for data exploration.
