Date: January 9-11, 2019
PyData Miami brings together three interconnected communities: users and developers of data analysis tools, as well as researchers creating new analysis methods. The PyData conference series is anchored in open source Python 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 conference, with tutorials for novices as well as advanced workshops for practitioners and researchers.

One of PyData's goals is to increase awareness and excitement around opportunities for underrepresented groups in software engineering and data analytics. To increase diversity in scientific computing, our outreach program ranges from hosting workshops that introduce programming to young women to encouraging diversity in speakers at PyData.
For PyData Miami 2019, we are offering scholarship opportunities to those from underrepresented groups who may otherwise be unable to attend the conference.
