PyDataLondon 4th Meetup - Data Mining for Good and High Performance Python
This is our 4th meetup, more details to follow. Pivotal continue to be lovely with the hosting, beer and pizza are provided by Pivotal (thanks!).
• Ian Ozsvald (http://ianozsvald.com/) "The High Performance Python Landscape" - updated talk now I've finished my book (http://ianozsvald.com/2014/06/23/high-performance-python-manuscript-submitted-to-oreilly/) on the state of High Performance Python computing, with a view on what's convenient and maintainable that'll make your life easier
• Dirk Gorissen (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dirkgorissen) - "How data, Python, and you can help 22.3 million people in Tanzania (almost half the population) get better access to clean water." - based on Dirk's recent travels to Tanzania working on a real-world data science problem
• Matt Sundquist (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/matt-sundquist/30/800/752) - "Plotly: Collaborative Python Plotting", Plotly lets you collaboratively make interactive plots with Plotly's Python API (https://plot.ly/python/), matplotlib, MATLAB, and R. In this demo we'll look at how to build web-based 2D, 3D, and streaming graphs in an IPython Notebook
We'll have Lightning Talks as usual. After the event we'll go to the pub downstairs and discuss the Want/Need cards that are written during the night. Here's a write-up of our 3rd event (http://ianozsvald.com/2014/08/08/pydatalondon-3rd-event/).
UPDATE we're joining the London Python Usergroup (http://www.meetup.com/The-London-Python-Group-TLPG/) folk in the pub (The William Blake (https://foursquare.com/v/the-william-blake/5092e9e5d86c24afaa50b41a)) from about 9pm, if you're on the wait-list you're most welcome to join us all with the speakers in the pub. Antonio is bringing his folk over from 8pm, we'll join them when we're done so there will be Pythonistas in the pub from 8.30pm through the night. The pub is usually empty so we should be pretty obvious :-)
