AGENDA

<< Talk 1 >>

Michael Gat will be presenting "Beyond Moore's Law: What happens to Pythonistas when the greatest truth of our lives ends?"

He will go over the root issue (slowing of hardware development cycles), a bit of generic solutions (the "crappy computers" and some other ideas) then get into specific ideas and programming solutions (how might we in the Python community adjust our expectations and our focus), while also pointing out that all these are probably the right things to do in any case.

Michael Gat is a Pythonista and data architect who is currently focused on big data initiatives using AWS. He writes occasionally at http://www.michaelgat.com. Follow him @michaelgat everywhere.

<< Talk 2 >>

Kyle Penner will be presenting "Astronomical data analysis using
Python"

"Gauss derived ordinary least squares and the normal distribution to
solve problems in astronomy. 230 years later, about a decade from
now, the Square Kilometer Array will generate "many" petabits per
second of raw data. I will give an overview of the technical aspects
of astronomy---data transformation; statistical analysis; and
prediction---and of the tools astronomers use to accomplish these
tasks."

Kyle got his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona and was a
postdoc at CEA Saclay and then at the National Radio Astronomy
Observatory.

<< Lightning talk >>
Mish Lee, QA Software Engineering Manager at Nativo, will be giving a lightning talk about iPython extensions!
