When & Where
O'Reilly Media, Continuum Analytics, and Lambda Foundry
O'Reilly Media spreads the knowledge of innovators through technology books, online services, and tech conferences. It is publisher of the iconic "animal books" for software developers, creator of the first commercial website (GNN), organizer of the summit meeting that gave the Open Source software movement its name, and prime instigator of the DIY revolution through its MAKE: magazine.
Continuum Analytics was founded by the creator of NumPy/SciPy to enhance Numpy with support for big data, distributed computing, and interfacing SQL/NoSQL/columnar databases. Using Continuum's enterprise-grade tools, researchers can seemlessly analyze and visualize heterogeneous data across technology silos from within their familiar Python environment.
Lambda Foundry was co-founded by the author of the open source Python data analysis library pandas. Lambda Foundry develops RapidQuant, a Python-based platform for data-intensive research and production processes in quantitative finance.
