What we're about

Seattle PyLadies is a Python programming group that welcomes members from all over the Puget Sound region.
PyLadies is an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Our mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events and social gatherings.
PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world. Anyone with an interest in Python is encouraged to participate!
All are welcome at our meetup events! We appreciate our allies.
Please note: We highly discourage solicitation from recruiters unless explicitly invited or are sponsoring an event. We are here to learn, to hack, and support women in the Python developers' community.

Session 1: Building Data Orchestration for Big Data Analytics in the Cloud
Abstract:
Originally developed from UC Berkeley AMPLab as research project "Tachyon", Alluxio (www.alluxio.io) implements the world’s first open-source data orchestration system in the cloud. Alluxio creates a unified access layer for data-driven applications in bigdata and ML, enabling Spark, Presto or TensorFlow and etc to transparently access different external storage systems while actively leveraging in-memory cache to accelerate data access.
In this talk, the speaker will present
- New trends and challenges in the data ecosystem in cloud era
- Effective Data engineering in the cloud world with data orchestration
- Production use cases of using popular stacks like Presto/Alluxio/S3

πŸ’– Speakers

🌷🌸 Jasmine Wang is the Head of Community and DevRel at Alluxio. She is a former national debate champion who turned into a traveling yoga teacher with a strong passion in building teams and being the bridge at early startups in Silicon Valley. Previously, she worked as the Head of Global Talent Acquisition and Operations. Currently she is building the Alluxio open source community, responsible for community, developer relations, developer experience, and cross-community collaborations at Alluxio.

🌸 🌼 Dr. Shouwei Chen is a core maintainer and product manager of open-source Alluxio. Before joining Alluxio, Shouwei received a Ph.D. degree from Rutgers University. Shouwei’s research focuses on the codesign of the memory-centric computing frameworks with in-memory distributed file systems in large-scale environments.

πŸš€πŸ€Ÿ Koushik Krishnan is a Site Reliability Engineer at Yugabyte. Talk: Notebooks as Functions
Jupyter notebooks are a wonderful environment to write code for both beginners and experienced individuals. The hard part comes when you want to take your notebook and productionize it. That's where Jupyrest comes to the rescue. Jupyrest is a tool that can turn Jupyter notebooks into HTTP functions. It's a serverless platform for Jupyter notebooks. I created Jupyrest at Microsoft and open sourced it earlier this year. In this talk I'll demonstrate how to use Jupyrest to productionize your Jupyter notebooks.
