• Monitor your data's health with Andy Dang

    Online event

    Healthy data is of utmost importance. In this era of microservices, decentralized ML architectures, and complex data pipelines, data quality has become a bigger challenge than ever.

    When data is involved in business decisions, bad data can, and will, affect the bottom line.

    But ensuring data quality across the entire data pipeline can be both costly and cumbersome, and data monitoring is often fragmented and performed ad hoc.

    Join us in April when Andy Dang of whylogs will discuss some common patterns in data engineering pipelines and how to approach monitoring data health using whylogs, an open-source standard for data logging, and a lightweight data profiling library.

    He will walk through examples using Pandas and pySpark, and discuss how you might use this technique in data science workflows.

  • Parsing Files: An Overview of Tools, Tips, and Tricks to Gathering Data

    The second Wednesday of every month, we're meeting on Discord to learn something new!

    This month, Brian Cohan will show off a few different ways to get data from a variety of formats. The goal is to touch on a variety of tools that are good to have in your toolkit rather than go into depth on any particular tool. He'll discuss how to use some simple string methods, pulling data from websites (requests, beautifulsoup, and pandas), regular expressions, the parse library for using inverted f-strings, and more advanced parsers like Lark.

  • Your (Jupyter notebook) code on other People's computers

    Do you have code that would be useful for someone else to run, but you don't know how to send it to them?

    Would you like custom command-line scripts to make it easier to run your code?

    This month, Chris May will be showing us a few helpful tips to:
    - turn your python code into a proper package
    - hook into Python's tools to create custom scripts
    - create a standalone program for your coworkers to use with a graphical user interface

  • PYnative Exercises

    Online event

    Join us for our monthly coding night!

    We've noticed a few members expressing desire to cover some of the basics of python. PYnative has some free exercises to work through to cover anything from the absolute baiscs to databases, matplotlib, and OOP.

    Not sure where to start? We'll suggest the functions, lists, dictionaries, and sets exercises.

  • Build and deploy your own (discord) bot

    Online event

    Do you have a workplace in Slack or Discord that would benefit from a customized bot?

    In January, Mason Egger will be joining us to show us how to build and deploy a bot using DigitalOcean's App Platform.

    Mason will be joining us from Texas, where his business card says he's a developer advocate for DigitalOcean. But what you'll find out from talking with him is that he's a teacher at heart.
