PyCon US 2013: Big data? How about PyData!

Big data

You know what's better than one huge conference? One huge conference, and another on huge data!

(Sorry, I couldn't resist)

Today, I am proud to publicly announce a new development for PyCon / PyCon 2013 - we're partnering and working with the awesome team behind the PyData Conference to bring PyData Silicon Valley to the Santa Clara Convention Center during the sprints - that's right, come for PyCon, stay for the sprints and PyData!

PyData Silicon Valley will happen in the same building as the PyCon 2013 Sprints:

  • PyData Tutorials: Monday, March 18, 2013
  • PyData Conference: Tuesday-Wednesday March 19-20, 2013
A bit more about PyData:

The PyData conference and workshop is a semi-annual event for scientists, engineers, and data analysts in the Python community. The conference focuses on techniques and tools for management, analytics, and visualization of data of different types and sizes with particular emphasis on big data.

Python is already the de-facto language for many areas of science and technology. Come join the conversation about its future in data science and analytics, and learn about all the great tools Python offers!

This is great news for both conferences - we are even looking at having our talk selection committee recommend talks submitted to PyCon 2013 for the PyData event if we run out of room, or see a better audience fit.

The PyData event is excellent - this years New York City event completely sold out - videos from that event to give you a taste are at http://vimeo.com/channels/pydata.

The PyData team really wants to hear from startups and teams within startups and other companies that are solving cool data problems with Python, so submit a talk proposal to pydataconf@continuum.io. They also to work with the community to get more talks & tutorials from women in the field - definitely reach out to them!

PyData is put on by the excellent team at Continuum Analytics (a PyCon 2013 sponsor) and the non profit NumFocus foundation. You can follow @PyDataConf on twitter for more info as it comes available.

Tickets to PyData Silicon Valley are on sale now through Eventbrite. Note that PyCon registration(s) and PyData registrations are separate! However, you can book your room for the extended stay if you're coming to PyCon through the PyCon registration system.

And of course, as always - we're still looking for PyCon 2013 sponsors!
