What we're about

PyData Chicago is a monthly meetup to discuss all things python (or R, Julia, C++, Rust, Go, ...) and data! Our meetup is currently virtual, hosted on Zoom. We usually meet on the last Thursday of the month.

All meetups are recorded and posted on PyData's YouTube channel 1 week after the event -- unless the speaker does not want to be recorded. Presentation decks, code and other artifacts from the meeting are also shared with all attendees subscribed to the Meetup event 1 week after the event -- with the permission of the speaker.

The PyData Code of Conduct governs this Meetup. To discuss any issues or concerns relating to the code of conduct or the behavior of anyone at a PyData meetup, please contact co-organizer Rebecca BurWei via Meetup's message feature.

PyData is an educational program of NumFOCUS, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the United States. PyData provides a forum for the international community of users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The global PyData network promotes discussion of best practices, new approaches, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization. PyData communities approach data science using many languages, including (but not limited to) Python, Julia, and R.

The Bayesian T-Shirts: A Taste of Optimal Inventory

Link visible for attendees

It's time to re-order a box of marketing t-shirts. Based on a limited order history, how many of each size should we ask for? By working through this problem, attendees will get a concrete tour of how Bayesian inference and discrete optimization can power operational improvement in the real world. Intended for beginners, this talk solely uses readily available tools from the PyData ecosystem.
