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

From the perspective of learning how to use DataFrames.jl in your data science workflows I will give a DataFrames.jl 1.2 tutorial on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. The workshop is live session.

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.

I would also drive your attention to the Statistics with Julia from the ground up workshop that will be held on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, where also DataFrames.jl will be featured.

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!
