Details

Hi everyone! It's time to plan the October meetup.

Luckily, Zendesk has kindly invited us to their awesome office, again. They will also sponsor a variety of food and soft drinks.

Now we just need to find two speakers! If you have something cool to share about anything Python related, please reach out to Martin Brochhaus here on meetup.com or via Facebook.

Agenda:

7pm: Meet & Greet

7:30pm: NLTK and Friends by Liling Tan

The talk will be a basic crash course to Natural Language Processing (NLP). We will try to build a simple application in 30 minutes using NLTK and friends (Scikit-Learn, SpaCy, Gensim and maybe, just maybe PyTorch).

Liling is a data geek that works mostly with text processing and machine translation. He contributes to NLTK and seeks help from StackOverflow whenever he works with Pandas dataframe.

8:00pm: Introduction to AWS Lambda with Python by Maximilian Jackson

Max is a regular visitor of our monthly user group meetups and has been an active member of the Python User Group and an organizer of PyCon APAC and PyCon Singapore for years. He has recently had the need to figure out how to deploy Python functions to AWS Lambda and would like to share his findings with the community.
