    Thanks for visiting the PyData Pittsburgh Forum! PyData Pittsburgh is a community of data scientists, data engineers, and the simply data-curious, with a special focus on open source tools and methods for data analysis, data visualization, machine learning, software development, and all kinds of scientific computing. Our members include data novices, professional machine learning engineers, students, academic researchers, marketing managers who've pushed Excel past its breaking point one too many times — and everyone in between.

    If this sounds at all interesting to you, you're in the right place! Feel free to create an account and join the conversation. All are welcome.

    Be sure to join the PyData Pittsburgh group on to receive notifications about our upcoming events, too.

    Community Guidelines¹

    🏆 Share things that add value. Lessons you've learned, resources you've seen, or new ideas that you've been thinking about. Self-promotion and spamming is out of bounds.

    🙏 Support each other with curiosity and patience. PyData Pittsburgh members come from a broad range of backgrounds and experience levels. Let's engage and learn from one another with kindness and empathy. Be constructive. Disrespectful speech and posting objectionable content won't be tolerated.

    ¹ Inspired by the guidelines for the Basecamp Community.
