What we're about

ODSC brings together the open-source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.

The focus of this Meetup group is to allow ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open-source community.

Who is this meetup for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualization developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision-makers from data-centric startups and large companies looking to utilize open-source tools

Model Development and Lifecycle Orchestration with SAS

Online event

We want to invite you to participate in the FREE ODSC Webinar “Model Development and Lifecycle Orchestration with SAS in an open analytics ecosystem”! These are great times for being a data scientist. At SAS, we see companies of all sizes and industries turning towards model-driven business models as this provides competitive advantages. But often organisational structures are not keeping pace. Friction arises where production IT meets the analytical space and deploying an analytical model becomes a challenge, causing severe delays and high costs. In the area of software development these issues are well known and DevOps has proven to be a good response. Enter ModelOps, the adaption of DevOps to analytics. This session demonstrates how SAS can be used to realize the key idea of ModelOps: to put the developer into the driver's seat by giving more control on the model lifecycle. ModelOps is all about automation and toolchains. Git, Jenkins, Docker, Kubernetes typically are the building blocks of these toolchains. We will demonstrate how SAS Model Manager in SAS Viya can be used to fully orchestrate the model lifecycle in open analytical ecosystems. Using SAS and non-SAS scoring models as an example we will cover registering, deploying and monitoring SAS and non-SAS models in Docker containers on a Kubernetes cluster. Date: October 21 Time: 2:00 - 3:00 pm BST To access this webinar, please register here: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/model-development-and-lifecycle-orchestration-with-sas-in-an-open-analytics-ecosystem The webinar will be presented by Tamara Fischer - Principal Solutions Architect, Analytics at SAS and Hans-Joachim Edert - Principal Business Solutions Manager, Global Technology Practice at SAS. Tamara is a graduate statistician, has been working for many years in the role of Principal Solutions Architect, Analytics, at SAS. In this role she is implementing solutions along the entire analytical lifecycle from model development to model deployment. Hans has been supporting SAS customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as a Presales consultant and Solution Architect since he joined SAS in 2002. Currently he is working in an international team of architects and developers which takes care for the EMEA region. His work is focused on enterprise architectures, Kubernetes and cloud technologies.

LIVE TRAINING: Animating Data: Turn any Matplotlib plot into an animated GIF

This is a PAID event. Registration is required: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/animating-data-turn-any-matplotlib-plot-into-an-animated-gif Instructor's bio: Max Humber, Distinguished Faculty Member of General Assembly. He is the creator of gazpacho and the author of Personal Finance with Python. Abstract: In this course, Max will help you turn any Matplotlib plot into an animated visualization with just a couple of extra lines of code. Whereas animation used to be something that required fancy tooling, Max will show you how to use simple Python decorators to stitch together multiple plots like frames in a movie. By the end of this session, you’ll be able to capture interest and make an impression with any presentation or spot of data analysis! What will you learn? - When and why to use motion inside of a visualization - How to turn any Matplotlib into an animated plot in just two steps - How to format and save plots as animated gifs Who will be interested in this course? - Data Scientists / Data Engineers - Those that work with data that has a temporal dimension - Those that find Matplotlib endlessly frustrating and confusing Which knowledge and skills you should have? - Required: Experience with Python - Required: Some experience with Matplotlib What is included in your ticket? 1. Access to the live training and a QA session with the Instructor 2. Access to the on-demand recording 3. Certificate of completion Use discount code - Meetup2020 - to get an extra 10% off on your pass for Virtual Conference West.
