Erik Wiffin will cover a couple ways of taking advantage of multiple cores in Python, and what some of the disadvantages and caveats are. Erik has been working with Python professionally for about a year, and has been a developer for eight years. Erik works at a startup called FleetHealth where he tries to solve some of sticky problems in medicine with machine learning and natural language processing. Extemporaneous “lightning talks” of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don’t need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are an opportunity for you to “show and tell” something you’ve learned about Python recently, no matter how small. Plenty of free parking is available in the RENCI parking deck. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
