It is our great pleasure to announce our first PyData Zurich Meetup and finally get started building our PyData community here in Zurich! We are planning to host a monthly meetup in the mid of each month.
9 November, 6.30pm
• Becoming an Open Source Developer
by Jaime Fernández del Río
Jaime is NumPy and SciPy core developer and currently works at Google Zurich
• Deep Learning Hardware and Libraries:
What you need to know to get serious about deep learning
by Tim Dettmers
If you google for 'deep learning hardware', Tim's blog will be the top hit. He spent last summer at Microsoft Research and at the moment his main interest is computational natural language understanding.
If you would like to participate in shaping PyData - i.e. suggesting a speaker or helping organize a coding sprint, etc. - you can start by participating in our GitHub repo, which we use to organize ourselves.
