Hello Grokking Python readers!
If you're just starting to learn Python, then one great thing you can do to get inspired is to attend conferences. If you're worried that concepts will fly over your head, don't be! Not everyone is an expert in data science or machine learning. Conferences are a great way to learn through osmosis, network, and find job opportunities.
Here are four upcoming Python conferences to check out!
Dates: July 11-17, 2022 Location: Austin, TX, USA & Remote
The 21st Annual Scientific Computing with Python Conference is taking place this summer. This is a great opportunity to get to know the part of the Python community that loves mathematics, science, and engineering.
SciPy 2022 will be held at the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center at the University of Texas campus in Austin, Texas.
Tutorials: Monday & Tuesday (July 11-12) Main conference: Wednesday - Friday (July 13-15) Sprints: Saturday & Sunday (July 16-17)
