26 April 2014 - 21:09PyDataLondon Meetup Number 1 (June – JS, NLP, Kinects)

Our first PyData London Meetup will occur on June 3rd at Pivotal in Shoreditch. At our first night we’ll have:

  • Pete Passaro talking on javascript and natural language processing using Python
  • Emlyn Clay on Matlab and Python for science
  • Chipp Jansen on auto-sculpting with a Kinect
  • Ian Huston on Pivotal’s open source tools (I had no idea they supported Redis and so many other tools!)
  • <1 more, TBC – submit an idea if you’re interested>

After this we’ll head to a local pub. Details will be announced via @pydatalondon. I haven’t run an event since the Five Pound App nights down in Brighton, I’m rather looking forward to getting data-focused Pythonistas together for interesting talks and good beer :-)

This new meetup will occur every month, it builds on the success of our PyData London conference back in February, we had over 200 people and a lot of rather superb presentations. My time to run the PyData London meetup is supported by my new ModelInsight Data Science consultancy.
