For the the begining of fall, we are proposing subjects ranging from open data, to SciPy and Django, walking by Docker and finally Go-lang. What a program for one evening.

Before that we'll have Rory presenting the module of the month pyp and Brice Salmon will come present how E-180 is using Python.

Please, also, don't hesitate, if you have anything to announce or present, just come, we are always happy to give you your chance !

As usual, the evening will continue with our friends at the Benelux, it's your chance to meet the Python Community in Montreal.

Flash Presentations (5-10 minutes each):

  • Rory Geoghegan: Module of the month: pyp

  • Patrick Picher: Python and E-180 - Brain dates for learning humans

E-180 est une entreprise sociale montréalaise qui se spécialise dans la création d’outils web et mobile de jumelage, connectant des gens aux intérêts similaires intéressés à apprendre les uns des autres, en personne et un-à-un. Cette courte présentation a pour but de montrer ce que nous faisons ainsi que de balayer notre stack technologique utilisant, entre autres, le langage Python

Main Presentations:

  • Guillaume Pratte: "Les efforts d'importation des données ouvertes de la Ville de Montréal"

The city of Montreal recently authorized the entry of its open data into OpenStreetMap. The challenge is the data is in mutliple formats (ShapeFile, KML, even CSV). This presentation goes through the process of converting the data to a format appropriate for OpenStreetMap using Python.

  • Eleyine Zarour: "Automating microscopy data analysis using Django and Scipy"

Eleyine will be demonstrating how she used Django coupled with Scipy to automate microscopy data analysis tasks during her undergraduate research project in biology.

  • Rory Geoghegan and Luis Rojas: How to get your python services running in docker

  • Alexandre Bourget: Golang for Pythonistas
