I am excited to run a data visualization tutorial, and to give a data visualization talk during the 2018 EuroSciPy meeting in Trento, Italy.
My tutorial “Data visualization — from default and suboptimal to efficient and awesome”will take place on Sep 29 at 14:00. This is a two-hours tutorial during which I will cover between two to three examples. I will start with the default Matplotlib graph, and modify it step by step, to make a beautiful aid in technical communication. I will publish the tutorial notebooks immediately after the conference.
My talk “Three most common mistakes in data visualization” will be similar in nature to the one I gave in Barcelona this March, but more condensed and enriched with information I learned since then.
If you plan attending EuroSciPy and want to chat with me about data science, data visualization, or remote working, write a message to email@example.com.
Full conference program is available here.
What: Data Visualization from default to outstanding. Test cases of tough data visualization
Why: You would never settle for default settings of a machine learning algorithm. Instead, you would tweak them to obtain optimal results. Similarly, you should never stop with the default results you receive from a data visualization framework. Sadly, most of you do.
When: May 27, 2018 (a day before the DataScience summit)/ 13:00 – 16:00
Where: Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) at Herzliya.

1. Theoretical introduction: three most common mistakes in data visualization (45 minutes)
2. Test case (LAB): Plotting several radically different time series on a single graph (45 minutes)
3. Test case (LAB): Bar chart as an effective alternative to a pie chart (45 minutes)
4. Test case (LAB): Pie chart as an effective alternative to a bar chart (45 minutes)
According to the conference organizers, the yearly Data Science Summit is the biggest data science event in Israel. This year, the conference will take place in Tel Aviv on Monday, May 28. One day before the main conference, there will be a workshop day, hosted at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center. I’m super excited to host one of the workshops, during the afternoon session. During this workshop, we will talk about the mistakes data scientist make while visualizing their data and the way to avoid them. We will also have some fun creating various charts, comparing the results, and trying to learn from each others’ mistakes.
Two months ago, on the PyCon-IL conference, I gave a lecture called “Time Series Analysis: When “Good Enough” is Good Enough”. You may find the written version of this talk here. Today, the conference organizers published all the conference talks on YouTube. Here’s mine:
On June 12th, I’ll be talking about anomaly detection and future forecasting when “good enough” is good enough. This lecture is a part of PyCon Israel that takes place between June 11 and 14 in the Bar Ilan University. The conference agenda is very impressive. If “python” or “data” are parts of your professional life, come to this conference!
