Creating Data Apps using Pure Python

Building Custom Apps using Streamlit
Have you always wanted a flexible & interactive visualization that is easy for others to work with without handling all the Javascript libraries? Or do you want to build a user interface for your Machine Learning Model? This talk has you covered with building data apps in Python using Streamlit with examples of a Travel Visualization App using Google Maps Data & an UI for the ImageNet Model.
In this talk, I showcase couple of different use cases where you can build your data focussed applications using Streamlit, an open source library in pure Python. In the first use case, I cover how you can build interactive dashboards using different Streamlit components. These dashboards can be easily deployed & the consumers can easily work with the interactive dashboards without worrying about all the dependencies that need to be installed to run the Jupyter notebooks. In the showcase, I will go over how you can build a dashboard of your historical travels using Google Maps Location History including some memories from them from Flickr. In the second showcase, I will describe how users can create a quick interface for their machine learning model using Streamlit. These interfaces are much faster to develop than building a custom frontend interface for machine learning models with the help of Javascript libraries. In the demo, I showcase how I built an UI for the ImageNet Model. The showcases will showcase how these data based web apps can be built using Python functions & Streamlit components.

We will talk about different approaches in teaching Data Science with the Python programming language. As a case study, we will use our own experience in providing Data Science education with Python across different audiences in the Asia Pacific region and share approaches and principles that worked for us. The lecture will serve as an anchor for more conversations and discussions for adapting pedagogy that is most effective for various contexts and settings.

In 2020, with funding from Mozilla and CZI, the pip packaging team improved pip for all users. These focused on improving the depedenecy resolution for Python packages, and the user experience for all Python users. We carried out usability testing, user research and improved error and information messages for pip. This talk will be about these improvements - we'll explain how the new dependency resolver works, what it can (and can't do!), how we improved the user experience of pip, the ...

We made the Web accessible to human. What about making the web (of data) accessible to computers? Publish open data could be struggling. Deposit a CSV file on a web server is not enough. The data model used should be explicitly defined. The Linked Open Data (https://www.w3.org/standards/semanticweb/data) solves this with: * standardized implementation format (RDF) * standardized data access (Content negociation, SPARQL endpoint) * standardized data indentification (URI, data model as data) For ...

Everybody hates mundane tasks, they are boring, repetitive and time-consuming. That’s why I love building bots, they can finish my tasks for me by working 24/7. But to build a bot to interact with the users, you have to write in async. If you are afraid of async, don’t worry! Today I am telling you how I learn using async and how I avoid checking in 500+ people in a conference by building a bot with Discord.py.

As part of the schul-frei project of Teckids e.V. we curate free software and offer it to educational institutions. Besides the general equipment of schools with free software, an equal involvement of students in the development is for us important. One of the solutions presented by the project schul-frei is AlekSIS, a web-based school information system that is being developed jointly by Teckids e.V. and students of the Katharineum in Lübeck. The django-based platform provides data structures ...

Pinax is an open-source ecosystem of reusable Django starter projects, apps, and themes for building websites. When developers began building Pinax in 2007, they had fun adding to it, but eventually Pinax had grown to become around 80 projects and apps. Without a strategy in place to make Pinax as easy as possible to maintain, the maintainers began to suffer burnout. I was hired to work on Pinax in the fall of 2017. In my talk, I'll outline the critical problems I've discovered and the solutions ...
