It looks like this is going to be a busy week. First up Noelle Sio, Alexander Kagoshima and I are presenting a webinar on Tuesday about our traffic analysis and prediction work. We talked about this topic at Strata Santa Clara but this webinar will take an extended look at the data, the challenges and the technology we used. You can sign up on the Pivotal website and the recording will be available afterwards.
On Wednesday I am heading to Amsterdam to talk at the second Data Science Amsterdam meetup. The organisers of this meetup are branching out from their highly successful Data Science London event which regularly has hundreds of data scientists on the waiting list for each meeting. My talk on Wednesday will be about how to do massively parallel processing using familiar Python and R packages using the procedural languages PL/Python and PL/R.
On the subject of PL/Python, the video of my talk at PyData London is now available. Thankfully the video was edited to remove five minutes of me banging on the keyboard as my laptop crashed half way through my talk! In Amsterdam I will be talking about PL/R as well as PL/Python so hopefully this time the laptop holds up.
And finally, the PyData London conference was such a success that Ian Ozsvald and other organisers are starting a regular PyData meetup in London. We’re very excited at Pivotal to be hosting the first event in our London office on June 3rd. The meetup page is now up and places are filling up fast.
