“Data Science Delivered” (a collection of notes on getting stuff shipped)

Over the last year I’ve given a collection of keynotes and talks around shipping and supporting data science products with Python. I’ve started to gather up my notes into a document – they’re hosted on github as Data Science Delivered, currently its around 5 pages of A4. I put the rough form together after my […]

“Featherweight” data science API to publish Python functions on the web

One of the challenges I’ve encountered when coaching data science teams in smaller organisations is the difficulty of publishing proof-of-concept data science products via web calls, when the team doesn’t know anything about web programming. My preference is to use Flask (and flask-restful and maybe Swagger docs) but that’s an awful lot of learning to […]

Opening Plenary at BudapestBI Forum 2015

I’ve just given my final talk for the year – I’m “at my other home” in Budapest (I’m half-Hungarian) and have had the honour of opening Bence and team’s BudapestBI Forum 2015. This conference has both an open-source-day and (tomorrow) an enterprise-day, all around analytics and with lots of Python and R. This talk is […]

“Ship Data Science Products!” at PyConUK2015

PyConUK2015 is over, it was another year of happy Pythonistic hobbitness in Coventry. I spoke on shipping data science products on the new Science track (organised by Sarah): It was nice to hear some polite-abuse being thrown at folk stuck on Python 2.x reminding them that it is high time to upgrade to Python 3. […]

EuroSciPy 2015 and Data Cleaning on Text for ML (talk)

I’m at EuroSciPy 2015, we have 2 days of Pythonistic Science in Cambridge. Next year will be in Bavaria, you can sign-up for announces. I spoke in the morning on Data Cleaning on Text to Prepare for Data Analysis and Machine Learning (which is a terribly verbose title, sorry!). I’ve just covered 10 years of […]

PyConUK and the Science Track

PyConUK is in its 9th year and this year it’ll host its first Science Track aimed at scientists (not “data scientists” but real lab-coat-wearing scientists). I’m speaking in that track, yay (“Ship Data Science Products!“)! This track is part of the main conference, it all runs during September 19-21. Here’s a tiny reminder from the […]

PyDataLondon Conference 2015 Call for Proposals now OPEN (yay!) for June 19-21

PyDataLondon 2015 will take place June 19-21 at Bloomberg’s HQ in Central London, we’ll have 300 people, multiple tracks and a very solid set of speakers and teachers. You should come. You should probably speak and share your knowledge. In fact – you should submit a talk to our Call for Proposals, it opens this […]
