- Warp 10: Combining the strengths of Python and Java to leverage time series and geo time series datasets :
Warp 10 is a time series database with optional geo support written in Java. One of its key differencing factor is WarpScript, which not only is a query language, but is also a full-fledge programming language tailored to ease time series processing. In this presentation, we will explain how Python and WarpScript can interoperate efficiently, using bridges built between both the Python and Java ecosystems by libraries such as Py4J, Pyrolite and PySpark. We will see the benefits of doing so through examples and Jupyter notebooks.

- Et voilà! From Jupyter notebooks to standalone web applications and dashboards:
The goal of Project Jupyter is to improve the workflows of researchers, educators, and other practitioners of scientific computing, from the exploratory phase of their work to the communication of the results.
But interactive notebooks are not the best communication tool for all audiences. While they have proven invaluable to provide a narrative alongside the source, they are not ideal to address non-technical readers, who may be put off by the presence of code cells, or the need to run the notebook to see the results.
In this talk, we will present voilà, a new dashboarding tool built upon Jupyter protocols and standard formats meant to address these challenges and bridge that gap in the Jupyter ecosystem.

Bios :

- Jean-Charles Vialatte, Ph. D., works as a machine learning engineer at SenX. On December 2018, he defended successfully his thesis on "Convolution of Graph Signals" and "Deep Learning on Graph Domains" at IMT Atlantique. He obtained its engineering degree from the same institution in 2015.

- Sylvain Corlay is the founder and CEO of QuantStack. He holds a PhD in applied mathematics from University Paris VI.
As an Open Source Developer, Sylvain is very involved with Project Jupyter and is a steering committee member of the Project. He was honored with the rest of the Jupyter Steering Council with the 2017ACM Software System Award for Jupyter.
Beyond Jupyter, Sylvain contributes to a number of scientific computing open-source projects such as bqplot, xtensor, and voila. Sylvain founded QuantStack in September 2016. Prior to founding QuantStack, Sylvain was a Quant Researcher at Bloomberg and an Adjunct Faculty member at the Courant Institute and Columbia University.
Besides QuantStack, Sylvain serves as a member of the board of directors of the NumFOCUS foundation.
