PyData Paris - 14-15 June 2016

What is PyData?

PyData conferences are a gathering of users and developers of data analysis tools in Python. The goals are to provide Python enthusiasts a place to share ideas and learn from each other about how best to apply the language and tools to ever-evolving challenges in the vast realm of data management, processing, analytics, and visualization.

We aim to be an accessible, community-driven conference, with tutorials for novices, advanced topical workshops for practitioners, and opportunities for package developers and users to meet in person.

A major goal of PyData events and conferences is to provide a venue for users across all the various domains of data analysis to share their experiences and their techniques, as well as highlight the triumphs and potential pitfalls of using Python for certain kinds of problems.

PyData Paris 2016 is organized by Systematic Paris Region, with the generous help and support of our co-organizers and sponsors. PyData is also one of the events of the 2016 Open Source Innovation Spring.

Previous editions

PyData Paris 2015

PyData Paris 2015 was the first edition of PyData in Paris, organized by Systematic as part of the 2015 Open Source Innovation Spring conference series. With a sold-out venue (almost 300 attendees), we consider it a major success. You can still look at the 2015 website, it contains all the presentations and links to all the videos that were filmed during the event.
