PyData Amsterdam Festival be held June 15-20. During this week-long digital event, we'll present you with an exciting mix of talks, interviews, workshops and discussions. There'll be ample opportunity to connect with the other attendees and speakers, either during the sessions themselves or throughout the week through the Discord channel. Every day will have its own dedicated theme. Yesterday, we presented the Python days, with talks by James Powell, Ian Oszvald and Chiel Peters. Today, it's time for... the Engineering day! Morning session 09:00 - 10:30 Code Breakfast: Keep the Data Flowing Lunch session 12:30 - 13:00 Sprint preparation (git, Github and how to make open source contributions) 13:00 - 13:30 Lunch chat (tba) Evening session 19:00 - 19:30 Keynote (tba) 19:30 - 20:00 High Performance Data Loss by Ondrej Kokes 20:00 - 20:30 Serving ML Easily with FastAPI by Sebastián Ramírez Code Breakfast: Keep The Data Flowing All ML pipelines make assumptions on the structure of the data being used. Once those assumptions are violated, pipelines break or models produce incorrect output. In this workshop, Madelon Hulsebos, Tomislav Suhina and Joost Boonzajer Flaes will teach you how use Great Expectations for automating data validation. During the hands-on session, you will solve a data puzzle! Talk: High Performance Data Loss by Ondrej Kokes Another PyData regular, Ondrej will be talking to us about how to do our job as data guardians: to deliver data things reliably and correctly, no matter if it’s in the shiniest new Apache tool or in Cobol, orchestrated by Ada. He'll go over a few cases, with code and examples, that display several implementation details that can lead to a large data loss without triggering any warnings or errors - and how to prevent those. Talk: Serving ML Easily with FastAPI by Sebastián Ramírez You know Machine Learning, your models are working well, the team likes the results… but now you need to “serve” them in an API so that others can interact with it (developers/frontend team/other systems). Sebastián is the creator of FastAPI, and will teach you how to easily build a production-ready web API for your ML models with very little code. Keynote In addition to the regular program, there will be a keynote on this day as well. We'll release more information soon. Tickets are €30 (excl. workshops)/€45 (incl. workshops) and all proceeds will go to numFOCUS, the non-profit charity that helps sustain Python's scientific computing ecosystem and your favorite packages, like NumPy, pandas, matplotlib, jupyter, SciPy and PyMC3.

As you all know, we can't have an in-person PyData Amsterdam this year. Over the past couple of weeks, the PyData Amsterdam team has been hard at work to figure out a suitable alternative, and today we're ready to share our plans with all of you. We call this event PyData Festival Amsterdam 2020. It's a week-long digital festival with talks, workshops, interviews, break-out discussion sessions, a programming challenge and more. We'll start Monday, June 15th with a breakfast workshop session, meet again at lunch to get started on the programming challenge, prepare for the open-source sprints and to join a panel discussion. The day concludes with a set of two talks. This basic structure will repeat until Friday and each day will have its own theme. Saturday you can join the Open Source sprints, where experienced Pandas developers will help you contribute to the library. Over the next weeks, we'll be releasing more details on the schedule. Keep your eyes on our website: https://amsterdam.pydata.org, our twitter feed @PyDataAmsterdam and of course our newsletter (https://tinyletter.com/PyDataAmsterdam). Tickets are sold at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pydatafest-amsterdam-2020-tickets-105751621948 We hope to meet you all at the festival. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy!
PyData Amsterdam Festival will take place 15th - 20th of June. This will be a week-long digital event with a mix of talks, interviews, workshops, discussions and our very first open source sprint. Each day will have its own associated theme; Engineering, Fairness, Open Source, Python and Applications. Over the next few days, we'll highlight the talks and workshops for each theme. Starting with.... Python day! Morning session 09:00 - 10:30 Code Breakfast by James Powell Lunch session 12:30 - 13:00 Sprint preparation (docs and generating documentation) 13:00 - 13:30 Lunch chat (tba) Evening session 19:00 - 19:30 Special Guest 19:30 - 20:00 Python: From Source To Execution by Chiel Peters 20:00 - 20:30 High Performance Python by Ian Oszvald Code Breakfast by James Powell James may be a familiar face to you if you've attended a PyData event before, as he has given over seventy conference talks at over fifty Python events worldwide. His two hour talk "So You Want To Be A Python Expert" is the most watched PyData video on YouTube. During our CodeBreakfast, he'll be teaching you more about Python. Talk: High Performance Python by Ian Oszvald Your Python code may run correctly, but you need it to run faster. Ian Oszvald is the author of the bestselling O'Reilly book High Performance Python, in which you gain a deeper understanding of Python's implementation and learn how significantly speed up your code. The second edition of High Performance Python was released April 2020, so there will be plenty of new things to discuss. Talk: Python: From Source To Execution by Chiel Peters Python is a high-level programming language known for its readability and ease-of-use. But have you ever wondered what happens when you execute a python program? In this talk, Chiel will dive into the internals and see how different components (parser, compiler, interpreter) work and interact. Special Guest In addition to the regular program, there will be an interview with a special guest whom we will announce soon. Tickets are €30/€45 and all proceeds will go to numFOCUS, the non-profit charity that helps sustain Python's scientific computing ecosystem and your favorite packages, like NumPy, pandas, matplotlib, jupyter, SciPy and PyMC3.

We'll make sure to get the recordings available to all attendees the same day, so you can - for example - watch the morning talks later in the day if it suits you better. Each day has its own theme. The Friday is all about applications for great causes! Morning session 09:00 - 10:30 Code Breakfast: How to build ML application with small data (using one-shot learning) by Alyona Galyeva Lunch session 12:30 - 13:00 Sprint preparation (keep your project clean with linters and pre-commit hooks) 13:00 - 13:30 Lightning Talks! Evening session 19:00 - 19:30 Making a real impact with duct tape by Thijs Suijten 19:30 - 20:00 Watching millions of trees with Python: for impact and profit by Roelof Pieters Code Breakfast: How to build ML application with small data (using one-shot learning) by Alyona Galyeva This workshop is hosted by PyLadies Amsterdam organiser Alyona and will be all about small data and one-shot learning. PyLadies Amsterdam regularly hosts great workshops, bringing real coding back to tech meetups. Talk: Watching millions of trees with Python: for impact and profit by Roelof Pieters Forests are essential to our future. They support 80% of non-human life on land and safeguard the climate by sequestering carbon. But forest fires, pests, diseases and especially deforestation lay waste to tens of millions of hectares a year. Roelof is CTO at 20tree.ai, where they monitor both urban and rural green space by applying machine learning to high resolution satellite imagery. Talk: Making an impact with duct tape by Thijs Suijten Hack The Planet is all about using their technical skills for the better. Thijs will talk about their latest project, where they developed a sensor that can detect mobile phones of poacher Ws which can help detecting patterns and predicting poaching activity. This in turn help rangers on the ground to protect elephants and rhinos that are facing extinction.
