How to MLOps: Experiment tracking & deployment 📊

Jeroen Overschie, Yke Rusticus

What's this thing called MLOps? You may have heard about it by now, but never really understood what all the fuzz is about. Let's find out together!

In this tutorial, you will learn about MLOps and take your first steps in a hands-on way. To do so, we will be using Open Source tooling. We will be taking a simple example of Machine Learning use case and will gradually make it more ready for production 🚀.

We start with a simple time-series model in Python using scikit-learn and first add logging steps to make the performance of the model measurable. Don't worry: we will go through it step-by-step, so you won't be overwhelmed. Then, we will log our ML model and load it back into an inference step. Lastly, we will learn about deploying these actual models by Dockerizing our application 🙏.

Practical introduction to descriptors

Rodrigo Girão Serrão

Descriptors are not black magic and this practical tutorial will show you that. In fact, you use descriptors every day and you don't even know it!

Through a series of practical, hands-on exercises, you will learn

  • how to create a descriptor;
  • how to use the dunder methods __get__, __set__, and __set_name__;
  • what the descriptor protocol is; and
  • where descriptors show up in day-to-day Python code.

Build your first GraphQL API using Python 🍓

Patrick Arminio

This workshop will teach you how to create your first GraphQL API using Python and Strawberry. We will be using using Fastapi as our framework of choice, but most of the concept will be applicable to other frameworks too.

We'll learn how GraphQL works under the hood, and how we can leverage type hints to create end to end type safe GraphQL queries.

To run this workshop you need to have at least python 3.8 and have followed the installation guide here:


Decorators - A Deep Dive

Mike Müller

Python offers decorator to implement re-usable code for cross-cutting task. The support the separation of cross-cutting concerns such as logging, caching, or checking of permissions. This can improve code modularity and maintainability.

This tutorial is an in-depth introduction to decorators. It covers the usage of decorators and how to implement simple and more advanced decorators. Use cases demonstrate how to work with decorators. In addition to showing how functions can use closures to create decorators, the tutorial introduces callable class instance as alternative. Class decorators can solve problems that use be to be tasks for metaclasses. The tutorial provides uses cases for class decorators.

While the focus is on best practices and practical applications, the tutorial also provides deeper insight into how Python works behind the scene. After the tutorial participants will feel comfortable with functions that take functions and return new functions.

Asyncio without Asyncio

Yan Yanchii

This tutorial aims to demystify asyncio builtin module by implementing it from scratch without any dependencies other than the Python Standard Library. We will go through the problem of blocking IO and how it is possible to solve it without single "async" and "await" statement using native Python concepts. Then, we will demystify async/await syntax and see how it is implemented. We will also build our own scheduler which will have a similar API as asyncio, which will be able to run async functions the same way asyncio does. And finally we will build real asynchronous http proxy using our own asyncio implementation. Why reinvent the wheel? - "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.".

Architecting Data: A Programmer's Guide to Synthetic Data

Ramon Perez

Finding good datasets or web assets to build data products or websites with, respectively, can be time-consuming. For instance, data professionals might require data from heavily regulated industries like healthcare and finance. In contrast, software developers might want to skip the tedious task of collecting images, text, and videos for a website. Luckily, both scenarios can now benefit from the same solution, Synthetic Data.

Synthetic Data is artificially generated data created with machine learning models, algorithms, and simulations, and this workshop is designed to show you how to enter that synthetic world by teaching you how to create a full-stack tech product with five interrelated projects. These projects include reproducible data pipelines, a dashboard, machine learning models, a web interface, and a documentation site. So, if you want to enhance your data projects or find great assets to build websites with, come and spend 3 fun and knowledge-rich hours in this workshop.

pytest tips and tricks for a better testsuite

Florian Bruhin

pytest lets you write simple tests fast - but also scales to very complex scenarios: Beyond the basics of no-boilerplate test functions, this training will show various intermediate/advanced features, as well as gems and tricks.

To attend this training, you should already be familiar with the pytest basics (e.g. writing test functions, parametrize, or what a fixture is) and want to learn how to take the next step to improve your test suites.

If you're already familiar with things like fixture caching scopes, autouse, or using the built-in tmp_path/monkeypatch/... fixtures: There will probably be some slides about concepts you already know, but there are also various little hidden tricks and gems I'll be showing.
