    TALK DETAILS
    TALK 1: How encourage teenage girl to programming
    (15m) Lately, I am teaching Python programming to a thirteen-year-old girl. She didn't know pretty much about mathematics, even matrix. However, she chose game programming for her career and her first game is finished. I want to talk about my experience and challenges to teach a teenager. Also, Shahgol (the teenager) will talk about the challenge she had faced.

    (10m) Talking python general career development.

    About Aatiya Chaudhary
    I will talk about if anyone is new to python, how can they start their career in the field. and I will also talk about career development in the field as expert. I can also talk about other topics in python if there are any suggestions from the team conducting this program.

    TALK 3: Supply Chain Security in OSS
    (15 mins) A vulnerability in Log4J, a popular open source software project, exposed critical digital infrastructure to remote code execution attacks. This prompted the US Government to engage big tech, infosec professionals, and open source organizations to come together to help secure open source software.
    What's a software supply chain and how can it be attacked. Why is OSS being targeted and what are the methods to protect it?
    I wrote a blog on this: https://cloudsmith.com/resources/blog/efforts-to-secure-oss-fired-up-after-log4shell

    TALK DETAILS
    Talk 1 : Reproducible machine learning projects with DVC and Poetry by Doreen Sacker

    Description:
    (20mins) Data Science teams live in the Python ecosystem, this means often using pip for package management and DIY solutions for data collaborations and training pipelines. The problem though is spending quite a bit of time on things that are annoying and unnecessary, such as package conflicts, missing data, and manual training processes. In this talk, I will tell you more about DVC and Poetry. Poetry resolves conflicts automatically, without you having to do it manually. DVC keeps track of assets used in projects, so we don’t have to. I want to share my experience with both tools, how it made it easier for us to work with shared data files, run training pipelines effortlessly, and let poetry handles all conflict resolution of packages.

    About Doreen
    I decided to become a data scientist while I was an intern at a big german E-Commerce company. There I met data scientists for the first time and saw the impact of their work. Algorithms repeat what they see, they are not objective but highly subjective and they at least partially represent views of the people that build them. I want to inspire women, queer people and everyone else underrepresented in tech to understand and have an impact on the code, the algorithms, and datasets that are being created.

    Talk 2: Pytch
    (20 mins) Talk details coming soon.
