    Agenda:
    👉 19:00: Python Quiz (Part I)

    Presentation:
    👉 19:20: How to design more informative visualizations with Python
    👩‍🏫 Amanda Iglesias Moreno
    Amanda is an industrial engineer, data scientist, and a cool medium author: https://amandaiglesiasmoreno.medium.com

    Designing good visualizations is a fundamental aptitude for data scientists and software developers, as they allow us to rapidly communicate our findings to the audience. However, to guarantee the effective transmission of our message they have to be properly designed

    Over the last few years, we can observe an increasing interest in the visualization field with more and more publications and studies covering the topic and providing us guidelines to apply to our graphs. Additionally, as the data science field is growing, we can also observe a rapid increment of the number of libraries that allow us to create complex and even interactive visualizations using Python.

    Amanda will show us the design principles we have to take into consideration when sketching our visualizations. Additionally, with a case study using Open Data from Barcelona, she will explain to us how we can employ Plotly, an open-source Python library, to create high-quality interactive visualizations.

    👉 19:40: Python Quiz (Part II)

    Event Link:
    Will be updated on PyLadies page https://www.meetup.com/PyLadiesMunich/events/276908065/

  • PythonShow: Exploring the DNA 🧬 and Home Automation 🤖

    Online event

    The Python Show – live talks, interviews, and a lovely community chat 🎥
    Agenda:

    => Isabella Capilla (Munich): Exploring the DNA with Python 🧬
    https://twitter.com/bellacapilla
    Developer, neurobiologist, and breathtaking gamer.

    About the talk: How is it possible to apply the power of computing in modern biology? Right now, billions of cells are replicating your genome. This extremely complex process is essential to life, but how much do we even know about it? Using the bacteria E. coli as a model organism, I will demonstrate how we can find out the starting point of the DNA replication process. Perhaps surprisingly, randomized algorithms, like rolling dices and flipping coins can be applied to solve these problems.

    => Richard Kellner (Bratislava): Python and Home Automation 🤖
    https://twitter.com/RicCo386
    PyCon Slovakia organizer and OSS enthusiast.

    In this talk, Richard will introduce us to home automation and what we can do to automate (almost) anything.

    He'll show the most popular boards (where you can run Python) and show some of the incredible things that can be done.

    Once we have the appliance ready it would (most likely) produce data. We will explore the possibilities of how to collect it and automate actions. This talk is tailored to people who are interested in creating real-world appliances.

    - As always, Boosted Boris will add extra spice with his drums 🥁

    At the end of the show, everyone joins a public videochat where we ask questions and talk about everything.

  • PythonShow #7: Python _magic_ functions explained and an open-source story

    The Python Show – talks, interviews, and chat live on Youtube 🎥
    Agenda:

    - Cheuk Ting Ho (London, UK): Under and Dunder - Python secret functions
    https://twitter.com/cheukting_ho

    You may know dunder init (_init_), but how well do you know about other Python "magic" functions? Why are dunder functions not accessible? On the other hand, internal functions that start with an underscore are accessible and I think that's beautiful. Do you want to know why? Let me tell you all of these.

    - Nicola Iarocci (Ravenna, Italy): My Open-Source Story
    https://twitter.com/nicolaiarocci

    Nicola is the author of Eve framework, Cerberus and more, and will share a few hints on how to become a good open-source contributor.

    - As always, Boosted Boris will support us with his drums and crazy solo 🥁

    At the end of the show, everyone joins a public skype call where we talk about everything.

  • PyLadies Show: Luciano Ramalho [FluentPython author], Lisa Shashkova [JetBrains]

    PyLadies Munich are inviting us to their first online event! Agenda:

    - Luciano Ramalho [Author of FluentPython, Sao Paulo]: Static Typing in Python
    https://twitter.com/ramalhoorg
    https://www.amazon.de/Fluent-Python-Luciano-Ramalho/dp/1491946008/

    The introduction of the type hints supporting Python 2.7 and Python > 3.5 is one of the biggest changes in the history of Python. The best
    feature of type hints: they are totally optional. Type hints help
    detect bugs and enhance readability — but not always.

    They also introduce complexity and make it harder to leverage some of Python's most powerful dynamic features. The cost-benefit of using type hints varies from project to project. Sometimes there is value in type hinting part of a codebase but not all of it. This talk introduces type hints and discusses the pros and cons of this epic new feature.

    - Elizaveta Shashkova [JetBrains, St.Petersburg]: Python Debugger - from internals to daily use
    https://twitter.com/lisa_shashkova

    Elizaveta is a software developer of PyCharm IDE at JetBrains. She is a master in Python debugging and debuggers and the author of PyCharm's Concurrency Visualiser 🔎🐛

    🌙Late-night edition, start at 19:30. Detailed agenda:

    - Marc-Andre Lemburg (Düsseldorf), EuroPython chairman and PSF founding fellow: "EuroPython Backstage: Moving from in-presence to online"
    https://twitter.com/malemburg

    Europython was forced to move online, which created a big debate all over Europe. "But I go to meet my friends", "How about the community spirit", "Why would I pay X for an online event" - perhaps all of us had at least one of those questions in mind. This show is our chance to get answers from the primary source. Marc will tell us about the key decisions of moving online, upcoming challenges, and future plans for the conference.

    - Astra Stefania Delprete (Turin): "Open source communities and the BIG DIVE trainings"
    https://twitter.com/astrastefania

    Stefania is a data scientist and a well-known Python activist from Italy. She will tell us about one of the projects she is involved in - the BIG DIVE, an intense training program for data scientists, backed by the non-profit innovation consortium TOP-IX.

    - Miroslav Šedivý (Karlsruhe): "Python, Let's Go Home. Quickly."
    https://twitter.com/eumiro

    When your daily commute, shopping tour, or visit to family or friends offers many possible routes and real-time online navigation services are of no use for your individual mean of transport, you can still learn to find the optimal route with Python.

    - Boosted Boris 🥁

    At the end of the show, everyone is invited to join a public skype call and talk about everything off-record.

  • The Python Show #4: Python Runtime and Tracing

    Online event

    The Python Show #4 will be all about hacking the runtime. Our supercool guests:

    - Elizaveta Shashkova, JetBrains (St.Petersburg): "The Hidden Power of the Python Runtime"

    Python runtime contains a lot of interesting and useful information that's quite easy to retrieve. Let's check out the Python memory model, variables, frame objects, and what useful data they store. After that, we will discuss several powerful tools that are based on the runtime information and which can be very helpful for any Python programmer in their everyday life.

    - Emanuil Tolev, Elastic (London): "How Code Tracing Works in Python"

    It has been busy several years in monitoring and observability. As we’ve hit limits on the visibility and detail that logging and metrics provide, we’ve turned to tracing and APM (App Performance Monitoring) systems. We can now understand performance bottlenecks and see errors in our apps down to the line of code. But how do they really work under the hood? Come and find out! We'll walk through how a free APM system works - Elastic APM.

    - As always, Boosted Boris 🥁

    At the end of the show, everyone is invited to join a public skype call and talk about everything.
