What we're about

Python Ireland is a group for anyone interested in learning more about the Python programming language. We aim to hold a meetup every month on a variety of topics from Computer Science, finance, research, big data and more, with a focus on Python-related technologies.

It is suitable for all levels and new people are always welcome.

Due to Covid-19, we are trying to keep the community even more united and engaged so we have been running some extra online events independently and on a consortium-base, if you wish to talk, please send us an email on contact@python.ie or find us on twitter as @PythonIreland.

We also have an annual conference in November called PyCon Ireland. If you are interested in hearing more about this conference, or our group please check out our website at http://python.ie/ (http://python.ie).

John Curry
==========

Optimization (Linear & Mixed Integer Programming) for Pythonistas
=================================================================

Most Pythonistas these days are fairly aware of what Machine Learning can do for them. Even if you don’t use it in the day-job, you are likely to have at least read the blogs and maybe tried your hand at a Kaggle challenge or a CNN to recognize your cat. We frequently use ML in our AI practise at Last Mile, but we find that many business problems we encounter don’t fit that mould. A fair number of these are best represented as combinatorial optimizations. In the last few years, the Python community has developed software like PYOMO and Google/OR that allow you to set up these problems and solve them in a really intuitive, Pythonic way. There’ll be a bit of maths but not a lot. Mainly, the talk will be about how to model a problem as an optimization, design a Python program, develop it and get to an optimal solution.

John has been a Data Scientist for 10 years now and was a systems analyst (developer who draws lots of diagrams) before that. He founded lastmile-ai.com in 2019 with the aim of building AI based products. Our motto is ‘Don’t be incredibly evil, just enough evil to make some money’.

============

Orbit Modelling Using Symplectic Integrators in Python.
======================================================

This short talk, based on my Final Year Project, discusses the differences between symplectic and nonsymplectic integration techniques and how symplectic integrators may be applied to spacecraft orbit modelling. The talk also describes how symplectic propagator functions modelled using Python may be interfaced with NASA's General Mission Analysis Tool (GMAT) in order to augment its in-built selection of propagation functions.

I'm Ben McKeon, I'm 22 years-old and a freshly-minted graduate of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Limerick. I'm a self-confessed space geek and will begin a Master's degree in Space Science and Technology at UCD this coming September. I hope to carry forward the work I've done as part of my Final Year Project and conduct research into Spacecraft Flight Dynamics.
