What we're about

PyLadies is an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Our mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events and social gatherings. PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world. Anyone with an interest in Python is encouraged to participate!

Pyladies Berlin are regularly meeting once per month, every third Tuesday of the month. There is usually a talk and a hands on session over a python topic. Anyone is welcome to propose topics that wishes to learn and give a talk. For more checkout our website http://berlin.pyladies.com/

We expect all participants to our events and community to abide to this code of conduct. http://www.pyladies.com/CodeOfConduct/

[Limited Seats] IoT Workshop by WATTx

WATTx Office

In this workshop, we’ll get to prototype with MicroPython and the ESP8266. The first few tasks are intended for participants to get familiar with the devices and tools they’ll be using and will have more guidance than the latter exercises. By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to build a sensor based application, that captures, relays and analyses the data generated by the sensors and acts upon it. The number of seats is limited because WATTx is ordering us kits for this workshop, so please make sure to keep your RSVPs updated. • Audience level: All • Host WATTx • Installation requirements Non • Miscellaneous Snacks and drinks will be available. • Gender policy We believe knowledge is for all and at the same time our events aim primarily to empower women tech community. We request non female attendees to be aware of this situation and make their presence discrete. Eg. by coming with a female plus one to ensure gender balance, avoiding to be heard more than the rest of the attendees in discussions and question sections. • Photography / video consent We take photos and videos during the event to use for documentation and in social media such as here in Photo albums, Facebook, Twitter, etc. By coming to the meetup, you willingly give consent to take photos and videos of you. If you do not want to give your consent, please let us know at check-in. • Contact Interested in speaking at one of our events? Have a good idea for a Meetup?

Building and Implementing a Deep Learning Speech Classifier in Python

omni:us (former SearchInk)

Curious to learn about working with audio data or machine learning? In this workshop we learn about how to prepare audio data for machine learning and apply learning algorithms to it. We will lightly cover the background of sound/speech and neural networks such as convolutional neural networks and long short-term memory networks. Our main goal, however, is to get a hold of speech data, prepare it for training, train models, and finally to test the models on new speech. While some of the code is a bit complex, this **workshop is meant for everyone**. If you are new to Python, we will walk through the code together and there will be people there to help! You will walk away with new Python tricks and a perspective into fun projects using Python so please don't shy away. • Audience level: Intermediate (Familiarity with basic Python and Machine learning concepts to get most out of it, Beginners mostly welcome, preparation material will be announced soon) • Speakers Aislyn Rose https://github.com/a-n-rose Aislyn's official education is based in research. She earned a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in clinical linguistics, which is basically the study of how language works in the brain. She focused on human learning of new languages, specifically how the brain handles more and less complex acoustic information. For example, does hearing new words from a variety speakers (not spoken the same time!) help new language learning? Or is it better to hear new words from just one speaker? When Aislyn was 25, one professor introduced her to programming, which she hated at first. Eventually she started having fun with it and actually shifted career directions. She now pursues a career implementing both development and research. To her delight, a hot-topic in current research is the application of deep learning models to sound and speech. Note: deep learning was not a topic covered in her academic education. That she gained through self-study. A child and a few years of self-study later, she dedicates her skills to opensource projects and teaching Python. She is currently a developer for the opensource project NoIze (due to begin this March). NoIze aims to improve hearing aids and noise processing with the implementation of artificial intelligence. https://twitter.com/prototypefund/status/1085548025286721537 • Host omni:us - Supercharging insurance with AI https://omnius.com/ • Requirements TBA - stay tuned • Miscellaneous Drinks and pizzas will be available. • Gender policy We believe knowledge is for all and at the same time our events aim primarily to empower women tech community.
