Data Preparation and the Importance of How Machines Learn
Machine learning is the ability of a machine to perform a task without being explicitly programmed. In this talk, I will cover how to manipulate data into a state that a machine can understand and make accurate predictions, and introduce a Python library that makes this easier.

Software Security
There are many ways to secure software. In this talk, I will explain some of the different techniques used to prevent introducing security vulnerabilities into your software, using threat modelling, automated testing and dependency validation.
