What we’re about
PyData Pittsburgh is a community for data scientists, machine learning practitioners, and all professionals, students, researchers, and enthusiasts working with Python and data in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is an emerging tech hub, with world-class research universities, outposts of major technology companies, a dynamic ecosystem of homegrown startups, and a burgeoning robotics sector. Let's connect these dots to share ideas, learn from each other, and grow the local technology community.
Our members include researchers and tech professionals with decades of experience, novices who have yet to write their first line of code, and everyone in between. If you're interested in learning more about amazing, cutting-edge work happening with Python, data, and related technologies in Pittsburgh, you're in the right place, and you'll find a welcoming, supportive community of like-minded folks.

The global PyData network promotes discussion of best practices, new approaches, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization. PyData communities approach data science using many languages, including (but not limited to) Python, Julia, and R.
