PyData Seattle 2015: Python Data Bikeshed

3508571577_1a633e7bc4_z

This repo contains the slides, data, and Jupyter Notebook for the PyData Seattle 2015 talk Python Data Bikeshed. The goal of the talk is to help answer the following question:

I have data. It’s July 2015. I want to group things. or count things. or average things. or add things.

What Python library do I use?

This talk discusses the following libraries in some depth:

The following libraries or projects are briefly mentioned:

There is an example Notebook that goes into much more detail on the core libraries discussed in the talk, with plenty of examples; it can be read directly in Github, or on nbviewer.

If you would like to run the example yourself, you will need to either pip or conda install the follow dependencies:

Babel==1.3
Cython==0.22.1
Jinja2==2.7.3
MarkupSafe==0.23
Pygments==2.0.2
SQLAlchemy==1.0.7
Sphinx==1.3.1
alabaster==0.7.6
backports.ssl-match-hostname==3.4.0.2
bcolz==0.10.0
blaze==0.8.2
certifi==2015.04.28
dask==0.6.0

sphinx-rtd-theme==0.1.8
terminado==0.5
toolz==0.7.2
tornado==4.2.1
wsgiref==0.1.2
xray==0.5.2

The Blaze demo also requires installing Postgres, creating a pydata database, and populating a diamonds table with the correct schema. Postgres can be reliably installed with homebrew or conda, and the table created with the following SQL:

CREATE TABLE diamonds (
    carat     float,
    cut       varchar(255),
    color     varchar(255),
    clarity   varchar(255),
    depth     float, 
    "table"   float,  
    price     integer,
    x         float, 
    y         float, 
    z         float  
);
You can’t perform that action at this time.
