• Tech Talks: Sharing Your Knowledge

    Klarna Bank

    We welcome you for another PyLadies meetup! PyCon Sweden is coming up at the end of October and if you want to practice your talk we have a stage for you to try. If you don't have a talk but think, "I would like to present something but I just don't know how to get started preparing one": perfect! Let's go through the basics and break it down into small bits and pieces that get glued together in a 5-minute presentation. If you're not interested in presenting a talk but want to learn more about public speaking, Python, or just spend time with other rad PyLadies, this event is for you too! We'll start off with a talk on "How to Give a Tech Talk (and Why You Should)" by Jessica Shortz from PyLadies, then Derek Homer from Klarna will talk about lightning talks and how to give a great one. Jyoti Rawat is going to present her own lightning talk on "Data Science as a Python Beginner," and we'll finish up with some brainstorming about talks that *you* might give or would like to see. This event will be generously hosted by and at Klarna! Please let us know if you have any food allergies/preferences, and sign up as soon as possible. Hope to see you all there!

To just start somewhere we will go through different machine learning types and train a decision tree model from the scikit-learn library to help us with data classification. The goal of this workshop is to gain a basic understanding of approaching this kind of data analysis questions and how we can use python to get an answer." -> prerequisites: know some Python, be somewhat familiar with Numpy and Jupyter -> beforehand install: jupyter, numpy, pandas and sklearn OR Anaconda This will be an informal meetup, so whatever your level (complete beginner to accomplished Pythonista) bring your laptop and let's get coding!

    Epidemic Sound

    PyCon Sweden 2018 conference is approaching (12/12/2018)! Whether you're going or not you'll get a taste of it with two speakers of the conference: Lorena Mesa (http://twitter.com/loooorenanicole) and Éléonore Mayola (http://twitter.com/eleonoremayola). Lorena is on the board of directors of the PSF (Python Software Foundation). She's also an organiser at PyLadies Chicago and a data engineer at Github. She'll be visiting from the US to give the opening keynote at PyCon Sweden 2018 and she'll talk to us about her work at the PSF! I'm Éléonore, a co-organiser at PyLadies Stockholm and former organiser at PyLadies London. I work as a developer for Journalism++ and as a freelancer. I will be rehearsing my talk on my experience working with data journalists. I hope you look forward to our last event of the year :)

  • ETL Jobs with Airflow, Security, and more at Detectify

    We're back for the first meetup of the fall! Eveline Visee from Volumental will talk about building ETL jobs in the cloud using Airflow and Cloud Composer. Data pipelines today are so much more than a script and a CRON job. We will explore how we can integrate Python with external tools (such as those on Google Cloud Platform) to build modular data processing pipelines in a scalable monitored environment Afterward, Martina Janevska from Detectify will talk. Martina started with Detectify as a junior developer fresh from school and has since worked her way up to being one of Detectify best developers and a regular speaker around the tech scene. In her talk she'll tell us about what the OWASP vulnerabilities mean and how learning about them made her a better developer. She'll illustrate this by showing examples of how security thinking made her write better code. We'd like to thank Detectify for hosting us and providing food and beverages for the evening!

    Expresso House

    Whether you feel ready to give a talk or not, come have a fika! We can brainstorm talks ideas, share advice and give each other feedback on talk proposals :) I've given 3 tech talks before including one at PyCon Sweden 2017. The deadline to submit a talk proposal for PyCon 2018 (pycon.se) is around the corner (16/10) hence the rush. If you aren't available on Saturday 13 afternoon [masked]), I can meet up on Monday 15 evening [masked])!
