PyData London (Feb 21-23 2014)

PyData is coming to London, this’ll be the first PyData in Europe. The conference will focus on Python for Data Analytics, quite like SciPy and EuroSciPy but with a bit more of a focus on business rather than science (but only a bit, I rather like the science).

170 videos from past conferences are available free online, all the content from this conference will go online afterwards. Obviously a big part of the conference is meeting people in-person, it’ll be held in Level39 in Canary Wharf at One Canada Place.We’re looking for talk submissions – the timeline is short so please respond to the Call for Proposals by the end of Jan (that’s 2.5 weeks away). Submissions around data analysis, “big data” (“interesting data” is more what I’d like to see) and visualisation would be ace, tools like numpy, Pandas, Cython, Numba, IPython, Vincent etc obviously are all very relevant.

Sponsorship for a London event is rather reasonable, if you’re looking to hire or raise your profile to London data/Python people then contact Leah via the Admin address on the sponsorship page, you’ll get good exposure for less than the cost of hiring a recruiter and you’ll have direct access to people who help write the tools that we all use.

Ian is a Chief Interim Data Scientist via his Mor Consulting. Sign-up for Data Science tutorials in London and to hear about his data science thoughts and jobs. He lives in London, is walked by his high energy Springer Spaniel and is a consumer of fine coffees.
