Project Night at Yelp

Oct 16, 2019 · San Francisco, United States of America

Into Python and want to experience how cool the Python Community is? Register at https://ti.to/sf-python/project-night-yelp-october-2019 and join ~150 Pythonistas at SF Python's Project Night on 10/16!

The format is similar to an un-conference. We start with a free food and drink reception from our generous sponsor Yelp. After formal introductions, Pythonistas join up with like minds to:

- enjoy our featured tutorial
- learn, share, and contribute at planned and spontaneous Special Interest Groups (SIG)
- hack on your own projects

Who should attend?
===================

- Anyone interested in our planned tutorial or SIGs
- Anyone who want to hack on your work, personal or open-source projects
- Experienced devs who want to lead a regular or spontaneous discussion group
- Anyone interested in mentoring others

The plan:
-------------

* 6:00p Begin check-in
* 6:50p Introductions: tell us about your project and/or the kind of help you seek
* 7:00p Make yourself comfortable and start hacking, or attend one of the tutorials or SIGs
* 7:30p Door Close
* 9:30p Wrap up / Hard Stop

Tutorials offered
================

Asyncio & Asynchronous Programming
------------------------------------------------------

Speaker: David Saccon

This talk will look broadly at the concept of asynchronous programming and how it differs from synchronous programming, along the way covering some key definitions and terminology. We'll examine the types of programs that could benefit from being written asynchronously. We'll look at the tools available in Python for writing asynchronous code and then dive into Asyncio, Python's powerful library for writing high performance concurrent applications. The second half of the talk will be a hands-on demo where attendees can follow along on their laptops

Machine Learning 101
------------------------------

Speaker: Tyler Suard

Machine Learning is everywhere. As the most popular form of Artificial Intelligence, it's used in everything from self-driving cars to Siri and Alexa. But what is ML really, and how does it work? Come learn the basics of what Machine Learning is, what it does, and how to do it yourself! This is for everybody with:

- Some coding experience(Python)
-High School-level Algebra and Statistics

Special interest groups
======================

Biocommons SIG
---------------------------------------------------

The biocommons software packages help genetic testing companies map patient sequence variation to reference genomes.

Software: https://github.com/biocommons/
Docs: https://hgvs.readthedocs.io/en/stable/intro.html
Gitter Group: https://gitter.im/biocommons/devs

Join us to hack on the installation docs, improve our test coverage, or pick your own issue to solve. (All skill levels are welcome!)

Pydata SIG
----------------

The PyData SIG brings together people interested in statistics, machine learning, and deep learning to share ideas and learn from each other. The focus will be Python's scientific stack - NumPy, SciPy, Pandas, scikit-learn, PyTorch, TensorFlow, Keras, and related packages.

Beginner SIG
-------------------

Just getting started learning Python or programming in general? Come to the beginner SIG and work to up your Python skills.

## This event is produced by

SF Python, a volunteers-run organization aiming to foster the Python Community in the Bay Area. Please check out their flagship event, [PyBay2019](https://pybay.com), and consider joining their 5th Annual Regional Python Conference in SF in August2020.

Food, drinks, and venue is through the generosity of Yelp

Yelp sees 89 million mobile users and 79 million desktop users every month. Keeping everything running smoothly requires the best and brightest in the industry. Their engineers come from diverse technical backgrounds and value digital craftsmanship, open-source, and creative problem-solving. They write tests, review code, and push multiple times a day. Come out and talk to them.
