This was an exceptional occasion in multiple aspects: our first workshop in English, the largest number of attendees so far (thanks to the large seminar room provided by our generous host) and this time we only had one presenter for the whole evening.

Dóri walked us through a mini project from driven data, and guided us from data cleaning til submitting a solution to this competition.
We learnt about time-series data, visualization, Gradient boosting for regression, train and test data sets, and how to evaluate or models’ performance. We mostly used the sklearn library to achieve these.

Thank you for the active participation, helping each other sort out the technical difficulties and especially for the group thinking, we enjoyed this session a lot!

Our next event is going to be at the Central European University (CEU), check out the event page!

BudapestPy Workshops 103 (2019-10-02)

Our third workshop took place at One Identity. Our host for the evening was Antal Balázs, the company’s employer branding specialist.

The first session was Doma Miklós’s introduction to the bokeh library. It provided us good template for creating our own interactive visuals. The figures became more complex as the presentation went forward. Lastly we got a little insight into bokeh’s geo-coordinates.

In the second session, Endreffy Zsolt from One Identity walked us through setting up a virtual environment and a testing example using PyCharm. He prepared with an example: looking for the Chernobyl disaster’s date on it’s Wikipedia page.

Once the learning part was over, we had the opportunity to join our host’s fabulous beer and hot-dog party. Between the hotdogs, donuts and the beers, Antal Balázs also treated us to a behind the scenes tour showing us their facilities and telling us about OneIdentity’s history.

Our next event is going to be at the Central European University (CEU), check out the event page!
