  • Private Data Anonymization with Python, Fundamentals
Abhinand C

I'm a software developer who loves to experiment with tech, spend time learning new technologies and build products fueling my desire to innovate for a better future.

I currently work as a Product Engineer at Strollby Team in UST, developing and scaling python based GraphQL micro-service. Apart from work, I'm engaged in a voluntary project with Kerala Police Cyberdome, pursue hobby projects and contribute in open-source community.

I had opportunities to work alongside great teams in start-up eco-system, give tech talks, take workshops to exciting peers and participate in various hackathons, even winning quite a few.

I have graduated with Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) focused in Computer Science & Engineering from Government College of Engineering, Kannur. I'm a versatile developer having handled multiple hats requiring diverse skills including Full Stack Development, Graphic Design, and Video Post-Production, and led divergent teams.

Hi! My name is MJ, I am the founder of AstroTutors / an instructor with over a decade of experience. I am passionate about teaching python, maths, physics, problem-solving strategies, and English. My personal interests lie in pedagogy, particularly that of programming, maths, and language. I, myself, am a student of French, and Irish. I am curious about how language impacts how we learn new skills and think about complex problems.
I completed my B.S. in Physics and continued with a Master's in Nuclear Science and Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts. In 2019, I moved to France, where I completed another master's in Particle Astrophysics. It was during my education that I discovered my love of python and programming. The majority of my work was in computational physics.
Since graduating, I have become a full-time educator. I have taught over 100 students python in private and group settings. I've created my own curriculum for teaching python to children which I am constantly updating in attempts to figure out how to teach python in an optimal way that is engaging and impactful. Right now, I'm working on translating it into French!

Peter Vidos

Peter is the CEO & Co-Founder of Vizzu.

His primary focus is understanding how Vizzu's innovative approach to data visualization can be put to good use. Listening to people complaining about their current hurdles with building charts and presenting them is his main obsession, next to figuring out how to help data professionals utilize the power of animation in dataviz.

Peter has been involved with digital product development for over 15 years. Earlier products/projects he worked on cover mobile app testing, online analytics, data visualization, decision support, e-learning, educational administration & social. Still, building a selfie teleport just for fun is what he likes to boast about when asked about previous experiences.

Petr Viktorin

Petr works at Red Hat, integrating Python into Linux distros.

He started contributing to Python in 2015, answering Nick Coghlan's call for a volunteer to improve extension module loading. After about six PEPs and eight years of work, that project expanded to better support for subinterpreters and maintaining the stable ABI, and helping Eric Snow's effort to break up the GIL.

Last year, after a nomination for Steering Council forced him to look at parts of the project that needed help, Petr revived the Documentation community, and spent time removing roadblocks from contributing to Python's documentation.

To give back to the community, he started teaching free courses to local beginners. But that is a story for his talk at EuroPython.

  • From Jupyter Notebooks to a Python Package: The Best of Both Worlds
Sophie Wilson

Before university Sophie designed and built systems counting translucent drops of liquid and detecting spun fibre machinery breakdowns; in her first vacation she developed a cow-feeder. She designed the Acorn System 1, coding the operating system in binary before designing and implementing Acorn Assembler, Acorn MOS and BASIC.

She and Steve Furber took less than a week to design and implement the prototype of the BBC Microcomputer, winning Acorn the contract for the Computer Literacy Project. Sophie designed the operating system and designed and implemented BBC BASIC for a succession of processors.

She and Furber co-designed the ARM processor powering Acorn's computers during the 1990s and virtually every mobile phone and tablet in the world nowadays – 200 billion sales of ARM powered chips to date (July 2022). She co-designed the ARM3, ARM610 and ARM 700 processors and ARM7500FE single chip computer. She created Acorn Replay multimedia software.

By 1999, Sophie developed the Firepath SIMD LIW processor and she and six others founded Element 14 to exploit this for ADSL. Sophie led the design of the instruction set for Firepath, wrote the Architecture Guide and led the SoC designs. Broadcom bought Element 14 at the end of 2000 and went on to win the majority of the Central Office DSL business. Sophie continues to develop the Firepath processor.

Sophie is a Broadcom Fellow and Distinguished Engineer, a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a Distinguished Fellow of the British Computer Society, a Fellow of the Women’s Engineering Society, an honorary Fellow of Selwyn College, Cambridge, an honorary Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and an honorary Fellow of the Institution of Engineering Designers (HonFIED). She has an honorary doctorate of science from Cambridge University and a CBE.
