What is PyData Chicago?

PyData Chicago is a gathering of users and developers of data analysis tools in Python in Chicago. The goals are to provide Python enthusiasts a place to share ideas and learn from each other about how best to apply our language and tools to ever-evolving challenges in the vast realm of data management, processing, analytics, and visualization. We're here to learn together, grow together, and build together.

How can I hear about PyData Chicago events?

Easy! Join our Meetup and get notified about upcoming events or follow us on Twitter at @PyDataChi.

What kinds of events does PyData Chicago host?

PyData Chicago presents a monthly speaker series, called Elocutionist Evenings, where community members present 45-minute talks on a PyData-related topic. If you are a community member interested in giving a talk, please fill out this form. PyData Chicago also presents a monthly project night, called NumFOCUS Nights, where community members are welcome to contribute to open source data tools.

How can my organization support PyData Chicago?

If you're organization uses pandas, matplotlib, Jupyter Notebooks, Julia, R, or any other NumFOCUS projects as part of your workflow we would love it if you could support the ongoing development and community around these tools. Your organization can choose to either sponsor an event (food and venue) or send a speaker for our monthly speaker series. If you are interested, please contact organizer Safia Abdalla in order to find out how you can support PyData Chicago.

Why do we need a PyData in Chicago?

Chicago is full of talented developers who are building open source data tools, talented data scientists who are using open source data tools, and people who are a mix of both. PyData Chicago not only aims to develop the open source community in Chicago, we are working to develop better programmers and better data scientists in the city through shared growth and development.

Do you have a Code of Conduct?

Yes, of course! At PyData Chicago, we value the safety and comfort of each of our members. We follow the NumFOCUS Code of Conduct .
