The tutorial and breakfast, sponsored by Eurex, will be Friday morning from 8:30 - 11:30 am. The Interactive Financial Analytics with Python and IPython session will be taught by Yves Hilpisch and will include examples based on the VSTOXX Volatility Index. Please see the abstract for important background and technical requirements.
There is no additional charge for this tutorial, but you do need to register for it. The previously scheduled PyData tutorials will begin at 12:00 pm, immediately following lunch.
One of the goals of PyData is to increase awareness and excitement around opportunities for women and underrepresented groups in software engineering. To increase diversity in scientific computing, our outreach programmes range from hosting workshops to introduce programming to young women, to encouraging diversity in speakers.
For PyData London 2014, we are offering scholarship opportunities to women and those from other underrepresented groups who may otherwise be unable to attend the conference. Generous donations from the Python Software Foundation and NumFocus have made these efforts possible.
To apply for a scholarship, please fill out our application.
PyData has gone global! Welcome to the first PyData site for an event outside of the US. We are excited to be holding PyData London, February 21-23, at Level39 in Canary Wharf.
Early registration is open until 2/1/14.
