Python meets science at UQÀM on the 25th of February for our 35th monthly mini-conference, nicknamed Serpentine Symbology. We’re immensely honored to host a broad array of speakers on diverse topics:

  • Jonathan Villemaire-Krajden: Using NLTK
  • Mahtab Ghamsari-Esfahani: PyBrain, a modular machine learning library for Python
  • Marianne Corvellec: Transforming Lena with scikit-image
  • Julia Evans: Intro to Pandas with IPython notebook
  • Pablo Duboue: Hunter Gatherer, a 1-click search summarizer
  • Derek Ruths: Using Python for large scale network analysis
  • Dan Mazur: Python for high performance and scientific computing

Our regular features, Module of the Month by Rory Geoghegan and Person of the Month by yours truly, will also be part of the program. I’m particularly pleased to see the participation of Python ladies slowly increasing in our events and organization team.
