A Tour of Python
Wednesday, 6th June
The Priory Centre, Priory Plain, Great Yarmouth
Find out what makes Python so appealing!
Burkhard will offer a brief tour of the Python language, and some of the features that make it so expressive, easy to use, and appealing in a wide range of fields. After that, he’ll look at examples of Python usage in practice, from really small computers (micro:bits) to clouds, from database to web development, and data science to machine learning.
I only came to England to walk the Pennine Way… 25 years later I still haven’t done it. I did, though, get round to starting an AI company (spectacularly unsuccessful), joining another startup long before it was cool, learning C++, and spending a lot of time on trading floors building systems for complex derivatives. Sometimes hands on, sometimes managing people. Somewhere along the way I realised you can do cool stuff quickly in Python, and I’ve never lost my fascination with making machines smarter.
