What's a lightning talk? Lightning talks are 5-10 minutes long, on any topic of interest to other Python people. It doesn't have to be about something that you wrote, it can be something that you learned, or a technique you think other people will be interested in. For more info about what makes a good lightning talk and ideas, go to https://us.pycon.org/2018/events/lightning/talks/

The Theater (#136) at UAT on Baseline Road in Tempe.
NOTICE: I am exploring the possibility of changing locations, if you or your employer has a space that would be convenient and fit 30+ people please contact me. Otherwise this will be held at UAT in a classroom upstairs, 201 most likely.
PyQt is a UI framework designed in C++ and ported to Python. In fact you don't necessarily need to use Python to utilize the Qt library. But today we'll be using Python as I find it easier to create the application quickly. Today we will be building a game using this framework. The game is blackjack. I'll go over the rules today and then we will begin building the application.
My name is Nicholas Finch, I am a Software Engineer over at USGS. I've spent 2 years now working on an application dedicated to helping scientists analyze rock samples from Mars. This application of course is designed in PyQt, which I will be teaching today.
NOTICE: We've moved to a classroom upstairs, 206/207.

I am going to revisit my Pandas presentation this month. Maybe make some improvements and share it again at our Downtown location.
"Python pandas is an open source, BSD-licensed library providing high-performance, easy-to-use data structures and data analysis tools for the Python programming language." Visit http://pandas.pydata.org/ or come to the meeting for more details.
This will cover the basics of Pandas and some introductory NumPy material including:
Pandas Data Structures - Series, DataFrame Basic Operations * Plotting
