Data-Science stuff I’m doing this year

2014 was an interesting year, 2015 looks to be even richer. Last year I got to publish my High Performance Python book, help co-organise the rather successful PyDataLondon2014 conference, teach High Performance in public (slides online) and in private, keynote on The Real Unsolved Problems in Data Science and start my ModelInsight AI agency. That […]

My Keynote at PyConIreland 2014 – “The Real Unsolved Problems in Data Science”

I’ve just given the opening keynote here at PyConIreland 2014 – many thanks to the organisers for letting me get on stage. This is based on 15 years experience running my own consultancies in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. (Small note  – with the pic below James mis-tweeted ‘sexist’ instead of ‘sexiest’ (from my opening slide) […]

Python Training courses: Data Science and High Performance Python coming in October

I’m pleased to say that via our ModelInsight we’ll be running two Python-focused training courses in October. The goal is to give you new strong research & development skills, they’re aimed at folks in companies but would suit folks in academia too. UPDATE training courses ready to buy (1 Day Data Science, 2 Day High […]

Second PyDataLondon Meetup a Javascript/Analystic-tastic event

This week we ran our 2nd PyDataLondon meetup (@PyDataLondon), we had 70 in the room and a rather techy set of talks. As before we hosted by Pivotal (@gopivotal) via Ian – many thanks for the beer and pizza! I took everyone to the pub after for a beer on out  data science consultancy to […]

High Performance Python manuscript submitted to O’Reilly

I’m super-happy to say that Micha and I have submitted the manuscript to O’Reilly for our High Performance Python book. Here’s the final chapter list: Understanding Performant Python Profiling to find bottlenecks (%timeit, cProfile, line_profiler, memory_profiler, heapy and more) Lists and Tuples (how they work under the hood) Dictionaries and Sets (under the hood again) […]

7 chapters of “High Performance Python” now live

O’Reilly have just released another update to our High Performance Python book, in total we’ve now released the following: Understanding Performance Python Profiling to find bottlenecks (%timeit, cProfile, line_profiler, memory_profiler, heapy) Lists and Tuples Dictionaries and Sets Iterators and Generators Matrix and Vector Computation (numpy and scipy) Compiling to C (Cython, Shed Skin, Pythran, Numba, […]

New High Performance Python chapters online & teaching a 2 day course on HPC

The last month has been crazy busy, not least because I got to run my first High Performance Python 2 day tutorial at a university. I was out in Aalborg University teaching a PhD group, we covered four blocks: Profiling (CPU and RAM) Compilers and JITs Multi-core and distributed Using less RAM, storage systems and […]

2nd Early Release of High Performance Python (we added a chapter)

Here’s a quick book update – we just released a second Early Release of High Performance Python which adds a chapter on lists, tuples, dictionaries and sets. This is available to anyone who has bought it already (login into O’Reilly to get the update). Shortly we’ll follow with chapters on Matrices and the Multiprocessing module. […]

High Performance Book almost ready for Early Release preview

Our first few chapters of High Performance Python are nearly ready for the Early Release on O’Reilly’s platform, we’ll be releasing: Understanding Performance Python (an overview of the virtual machine and modern PC hardware) Profiling Python Code (for CPU and RAM profiling, lots of options) Pure Python (generators, the guts of dicts and the like) […]

High Performance Python at PyDataLondon 2014

Yesterday I spoke on The High Performance Python Landscape at PyDataLondon 2014 (our first PyData outside of the USA – see my write-up). I was blessed with a full room and interesting questions. With Micha I’m authoring a High Performance Python book with O’Reilly (email list for early access) and I took the topics from […]
