JuliaCon 2021 schedule looks awesome. The breadth and depth of topics covered is really impressive and I am sure everyone will find many interesting talks to attend.
There are so many valuable presentations that it is super cool that everything is recorded as otherwise I would not be able to attend every session I would like to learn from.
The conference is divided into two blocks. From July 20 to July 27 we have two 3-hour workshops each day. I think this is a super nice to have them. Then from July 28 to July 30 we have talks, posters, and BoF/Mini Track sessions.
DataFrames.jl during workshops
All the material that I will use in the tutorial is available on GitHub. If you want to follow my examples live I recommend you to download it and read the prerequisite instructions before the workshop.
There are already many on-line materials that walk users though basic functionality and syntax of DataFrames.jl. You can find the appropriate links here. Therefore this year I have decided to prepare a tutorial that shows how a simple data science project can be done end-to-end using DataFrames.jl and other packages from the JuliaData and JuliaStats ecosystem.
Presentations about DataFrames.jl
I will give two DataFrames.jl related presentations during the conference.
The first one is on Thursday, July 29, 2021 and is about Release management - lessons learned in JuliaData ecosystem. In this presentation I discuss my experiences from serving as one of the maintainers of DataFrames.jl. I hope that the talk will be useful both for regular users as I discuss typical issues that people starting to use DataFrames.jl face, and for package contributors since I share the package maintenance practices we I have learned to be useful. This talk is pre-recorded.
The second talk on Friday, July 30, 2021 will present a summary about the state and plans for DataFrames.jl package and is not pre-recorded.
I am really excited about JuliaCon 2021 and cannot wait to virtually meet you during the conference!
