Python & Data 8 March 2023

Data and Python are to the fore this month as we look at the some of the most significant data projects that Code The City have undertaken in the last nine year, look at the practicalities of gathering data using Python, and look forward to our 28th Hack event which is coming up just over a week later.

The format will be:

  • an overview of the previous CTC data projects
  • how do we scrape data with Python - look at an existing one and at refactoring code from that
  • a quick look forward to CTC28 and the opportunities there

This event is orgnanised by a charity - Code The City. CTC suggests a small donation to help with charity admin costs, but if this is a barrier please just change the ticket price to what you can afford.

We're now back to running physical events backed up with an online option.

If you select a physical ticket and it happens that we can not meet physically you will have to attend the Zoom session. If you choose a physical ticket and it goes ahead you will have to comply with any conditions of attendance (eg masks or social distancing) that the venue operators demand at the time.

Those attending the physical space meetup should attend at 6pm for pizza and drinks. The coding session (for online attendees) will be from 6.30pm. Doors will be locked from 6.30pm.

**If tickets are sold out please do not attend as you will be refused entry without a ticket. **

Our booking system is provided by Tito. Their platform is integrated with payment processing by Stripe


Additional Information

Our physical session starts at 6pm with pizza and drinks.
