Pablo Galindo Salgado: Nobody expects the Spanish inquisition

In this talk I will go into some interesting stories of how (C)Python is made. We will go through a journey that will show you how Python is developed, who works on it, interesting battles against the most obscure of bugs and lots of unexpected situations and things to learn and to reflect on.

Abigail Dogbe: Python in a world of Pan-Africanism

image
The use of Python in Africa is widely spread daily. In this talk, I will take you on a journey of what Python means to us in a Pan-African setting, lessons learned from organizing PyCon Africa, the people behind it, challenges we are facing and reflections on what works in our ecosystem.

Claudia Comito: Connecting Communities: the Helmholtz Analytics Framework and the making of Heat

HPC, Scientific Big Data, co-design, Python: beneath the buzzwords,
bringing together academics from the most disparate research fields to work on a common product is no easy feat. What worked, what didn't, and lessons learned from the Helmholtz Analytics Framework experience.

Dr. Kimberly Arcand: Our Universe through Sight, Sound & Touch

image
Information of our Universe doesn't have to be just a two-dimensional snap shot. We can transform these data to be able to listen, feel, or (virtually) move through cosmic objects. Listen to the debris from an exploded star, walk through the core of our Milky Way in virtual reality, feel vibrations of a stellar nursery, and experience our universe anew.

David Beazley: No, not typing. Types.

While biking through the forest preserve on a dark December morning, I found myself suddenly staring face-to-face with Bambi. Picking myself off the ground with a broken wrist and an assortment of broken fingers, I embarked on an unexpected journey of discovery. Then the pandemic hit. In this talk, I provide a trip report.

Joannah Nanjekye: Python the Bad Parts

image
Python is great but it definitely has faults too.In this talk, I will talk about some of the Python challenges as a language, and the current efforts in the community to alleviate them. I will also talk about how I plan to engage scientists and academics during my time on the PSF board, to highlight some of the research we are working on as a community.

Conference Booklet

Our designer Jessica has created a beautiful conference booklet for you to refer to during the conference and keep as a memory afterwards. It details all of the information regarding the schedule, talks, workshops and sponsors as a single PDF file.
