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/
• Sarah will talk about the Zappa library ("serverless" Python web services on AWS)
• Gary will talk about Continuous Integration in GitHub using Circle CI
• Trevor will talk about the best rejected PEPs
• Marcus will talk about UMAP (Uniform Manifold Approximation and Projection) for dimension reduction for drop-in replacement for scikit-learn's t-SNE visualization and for non-linear dimension reduction
• Bring one and surprise us or comment below!
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
This talk is aimed at folks who are comfortable working in an Anaconda environment. If that’s not you then that’s ok! You will still be able to appreciate the power of interactive visualizations and how Python creates those visuals. What you will walk away with is the ability to get started on programing up your own Dash Apps.
Blair is a Galvanize Data Science Alumni with an interest in consulting, visualization, and creating access to Machine Learning. He currently works in the Admissions team within Galvanize. When he’s not doing Data Science projects he probably either cuddling with his cats, wandering a history museum, or playing some dorky video game (any Crusader Kings fans out there?).
