5 September 2014 - 12:20Fourth PyDataLondon Meetup
Many thanks to @GoPivotalEMEA for hosting us.
We had 3 speakers and 1 lightning talk.
Here are my slides on “The High Performance Python Landscape”:
Next Dirk spoke on Data for Good and datamining water sources in Tanzania including some very honest thoughts on how to (hopefully) leave behind working systems that local teams can maintain. Dirk’s talk is built on a project called Taarifa (and source) that our Florian helped build.
Finally we had Matt from Plot.ly over from San Francisco, he gave very compelling reasons to investigate the online visualisation (and data sharing) system for plot.ly. The matplotlib 1-line converter was particularly nice.
We’ve got a growing collection of Offer/Want cards which help connect folk in the pub afterwards, we’ll keep building these up:
Our next event is on October 7th, be sure to follow the @pydatalondon twitter account and join the PyDataLondon meetup group to see the forthcoming announce. The RSVPs for the 4th event were filled in 2 hours of the general announce!
