12th PyDataLondon meetup at AHL

We’ve just had our 12th meetup – we’re fully a year old, we’ve nearly 1,500 members and now we’re planning our second conference (the Call for Proposals is open for just another 10 days!). Python Data Science has grown crazily-popular in the last couple of years!

Here’s a photo from last week’s meetup, that’s over 220 people at our new host hedge-fund AHL (they’re hiring):


Our two speakers were:

  • Slavi Marinov talking on using gensim for topic classification for financial prediction
  • Lasse Bohling talking on using statistics for football prediction at footballradar.com

Slides are linked in the meetup comments. We’ll take a break for a month to run the conference (June 19-21), then we’ll pick up again in July.
