PyData Miami is a data science conference happening January 9th-11th, 2019
. The PyData conference series is organized by NumFOCUS
, with regional events happening across dozens of cities internationally. The conference is anchored in Python data packages such as NumPy
, and scikit-learn
but also includes approaches to data analysis and visualization in other high level numerical languages such as R
We aim to be an accessible, community-driven event, with tutorials and talks for students, practitioners, and researchers.
