We expect 400 participants for PyCon.DE 2018 Karlsruhe.
The conference will last 3 days and include about 60 talks, tutorials
and hands on sessions.
Python is a programming language which has found application and
friends in many areas. Due to its popularity in science, Python
has experienced a meteoric rise in the data science community
over the past few years. At the conference, we expect a broad
and interesting mix of Pythonistas including roles such as:
- Software Developer
- Data Scientist
- System Administrator
- Academic Scientist
- Technology Enthusiast
PyCon.DE 2018 will be held at the Center for Art and
Media in Karlsruhe. Karlsruhe as a city and a decisive IT region
in the south-west of Germany and the ZKM as a venue represent a
perfect match for the conference.
In Germany and across Europe, Karlsruhe occupies top positions in research,
technology and innovation. The region has a well-known reputation among universities
and research institutes. The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology is a national
collaboration between the national research center Karlsruhe and the local university
and sets the standard worldwide for innovating technologies. In the city and region, approximately 3,600 IT
companies with more than 36,000 jobs exist and continue to grow and thrive. The industry is integrated
into the cyberforum IT company network and is part of a "software cluster"
recognized and sponsored by the federal government.
The conference will include a PyData track:
PyData brings together both users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The goals are to provide data science enthusiasts, across various domains, a place to discuss how best to apply languages and tools to the challenges of data management, processing, analytics, and visualization.
