Big PyData BBQ 2022

If you like cool talks about Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, coding or community, the Big PyData BBQ on July 7 in Mannheim was your place to be. The fourth edition of the annual Big PyData BBQ offered interesting talks and good opportunities for networking over a delicious BBQ.

KÖNIGSWEG and NEXT MANNHEIM again cordially invited to the annual BBQ of the PyData Southwest Community. The event could take place without Corona restrictions this year - this time we could welcome more than 100 participants at MAFINEX in Mannheim.

We were able to attract five great speakers - all PyLadies - for the event:

  • Jessica Greene (she/her) will talk about her work with data at Ecosia (Video)
  • Katherine Jarmul (Thoughtworks) on security (unfortunately cancelled at short notice)
  • Paula González (SPICED Academy) on analyzing the language acquisition process of a bilingual child (Video)
  • Tereza Iofciu (neuefische) on diversity and inclusion at the Python Software Foundation (PSF) (unfortunately cancelled at short notice)
  • Laysa Uchoa (Aiven) about Super Search with Python and OpenSearch (Video)
  • Vaibhav (VB) Srivastav jumped in at short notice with a talk about automatic speech recognition (Video)

Like every time, there was also great food & drinks, many more lightning talks and the opportunity to share and network.
