- Community Meeting at PyCon CZ 2019
Join us at a PyData community meeting during PyCon CZ 2019. Let’s discuss how to improve and expand Czech PyData community. Have your say in future topics, speakers, what other types of events we could organise or which cities we can spread to. Let’s come together and share ideas. The exact meetup location at the conference venue will be announced after lightning talks end on Friday 15th at 19:00. Get tickets for PyCon CZ with a whole-day-long PyData track before they sell out at https://cz.pycon.org/.
- PyData Prague #2 - Optimized Elasticity
We are happy to announce the first meetup in 2019 (and the second overall). This time, we move to a more academic environment (with big thanks to the Czech Technical University!). The doors (main entrance of the Faculty of Architecture) will open at 6PM, the talks will begin at 6.30PM and will last approximately 90 minutes. See https://en.mapy.cz/s/3lX4g for directions. **Both talks will be in English.** Food and drinks will be provided by our generous sponsors, we'd like to thank Avast, LMC, Showmax, and Keboola for supporting our event. *** The how and why of Elasticsearch *** Elasticsearch is an open source distributed datastore, we will see what makes it tick, how to use it from Python and try to draw some conclusions as to where it might fit in in your organization. Honza Král is a principal consulting architect from Elastic and a long-term core committer to Django. *** Optimizing numerical calculations in Python *** Jakub Urban, a senior Pythonista from Quantlane with rich experience in scientific computing and modelling, will show various possibilities for making your (mostly) numerical calculations in Python fast. He will cover optimization and parallelization using Numpy, Numba, Cython or Dask. You will learn that Python can be as fast as Fortran with a very little effort. In case it cannot, you will see how to seamlessly turn Fortran/C/C++ into a Python module. The limit is set to 120 participants. Please, RSVP here and unregister if you know you are not able come. If you have any questions regarding the venue, our topics, timing, or anything else, don't hesitate and send us a message.
- PyData Prague - 1st Meetup - Open Source and Open Communities
We are excited to announce our first PyData meetup in Prague! We'll meet at Avast right next to Pankrac metro station, doors will open at 6PM, the talks will begin at 6.30PM and will last approximately 90 minutes. **Both talks will be in English.** Food and drinks will be provided by our generous sponsors, we'd like to thank Avast, LMC, Showmax, and Keboola for supporting our event. We're thrilled to have two excellent speakers: Ian Ozsvald, a London-based data scientist with 15+ years of experience, he co-founded PyData London, one of the largest PyData communities in the world. Ian will introduce PyData, NumFOCUS and the community behind these initiatives. He'll then talk about successfully delivering a data science project. Štěpán Roučka, a contributor to the SymPy project, a computer algebra system widely used within academia and industry, both as a standalone tool and as part of other scientific packages. Štepán will give a brief overview of SymPy's functionality and will show you a few examples, which may motivate you to add SymPy to your data science toolbox. If you have any questions regarding the venue, our topics, timing, or anything else, don't hesitate and send us a message.
