Python Talks about Building a Blockchain and REST API
PyData Munich is back with another couple accessible data science tutorials, once again at the JetBrains Event Space! There will be three talks: Talk 1: A lightening talk by JetBrains about some brand-new data science-oriented functionality in PyCharm. Talk 2: Let's build a Python Blockchain, by Riswan Lathif Description: The attendees would be able to understand what a Blockchain is, what it is not, and why there is so much hype surrounding it after the talk. A small prototype blockchain would be built over the course of the session with Python. No prior experience with Blockchain technology is required. Riswan is a Masters Informatics student at TUM and a backend engineer at KI Labs. He has worked with SAP Labs and DLR in the past. He is currently doing a thesis on DAG based blockchain alternatives. He likes tweaking open source projects and attending hackathons. Talk 3: "REST API" by Victor Movileanu Description: The main concepts of RESTful web services will be highlighted, as well as how to use them based on the bitcoin trading website Kraken. At the end of the talk, a trading bot for learning purposes could be created. Victor Movileanu studied Biochemistry and learned programming by himself during his masters, which he used a lot during his internships and master thesis for data analysis. Currently, he is interested in web development (Django framework, Angular 6).
