Thanks for a great show! Check out CTO and co-founder Peter Wang at Strata NYC 2016, giving a tour of our Anaconda Booth: 



Join the #AnacondaCrew at booth #325 at Strata + Hadoop World in NYC this year! Sarah Bird and Bryan Van de Ven will lead the tutorial ‘Interactive Intelligent Apps in Python’ on Tuesday, September 27 from 1:30-5PM, and CTO & co-founder Peter Wang will present his talk Successful Open Data Science on Hadoop: From Sandbox to Production,’ on Wednesday, September 28, from 4:35-5:15PM. 

TUTORIAL: ‘Interactive Intelligent Apps in Python,’ Bryan Van de Ven (@bigreddot) & Sarah Bird (@birdsarah

Python offers a rich ecosystem of tools to gather, manipulate, and analyze your data. Bokeh allows you to build powerful interactive data applications and link together accessible web-based visualizations with the power of your stack of Python tools (NumPy, pandas, scikit-learn, requests, Scrapy, etc.) in just a few lines of Python code—no web programming required. When you want to collaborate or present your work to a wider audience, the Web is a universally accessible platform. You’ll learn how to bring these two worlds together as Bryan Van de Ven and Sarah Bird demonstrate how to build intelligent apps in a week with Bokeh, Python, and optimization.

TALK: ‘Successful Open Data Science on Hadoop: From Sandbox to Production,’ Peter Wang (@pwang

More and more, owners of Hadoop deployments find themselves faced with the new challenge of supporting data science ecosystems like Python and R, both adjacent to and within their Hadoop infrastructure. Although these technologies carry the promise of powerful data science insights, they can also be complex to manage and deploy. As people build out data science sandboxes and production environments, they discover a number of challenges ranging from basic package management and data lineage to reproducibility and governance of data science artifacts.

In this talk, we’ll distill the vast array of Hadoop and data science tools and potential architectures down to the essentials that deliver a powerful and lightweight stack quickly, so that you can accelerate time-to-value, while meeting your data science, governance and IT needs. Throughout the discussion, Peter will highlight challenges and best practices––drawn from real-world customer use cases.

Breaking Data Science Open: How Open Source is Eating the World

In addition to exciting talks and tutorials, we’re also giving away copies of ‘Breaking Data Science Open: How Open Source is Eating the World,’ the preview edition of EVP of Anaconda Business Michele Chambers and Senior Data Scientist Christine Doig’s latest book, published with O’Reilly—stop by Booth 325 during the show to get a copy! 

Book Signings with Michele and Christine will be on Wednesday, September 28, from 11-11:30AM and from 3:30-4PM at Booth #325! 

Data science has burst onto the public’s attention over the past few years as perhaps the hottest and most lucrative technology field. No longer just a buzzword for advanced analytical software, data science is poised to change everything about an organization: its potential customers, its expansion plans, its engineering and manufacturing process, how it chooses and interacts with suppliers, and more. The leading edge of this tsunami is a combination of innovative business and technology trends that promise a more intelligent future based on the combination of open source software and cross-organizational collaboration called Open Data Science. Open Data Science is a movement that makes the open source tools of data science – data, analytics, and computation – work together as a connected ecosystem.
