Abstract: Data is everywhere. And it’s everything (if you’re creative)! So it makes me so sad to see Iris and Titanic in every blog, tutorial and book on data science and machine learning. In DATAFY ALL THE THINGS I’ll empower you to curate and create your own data sets (so that we can all finally let Iris die). You’ll learn how to parse unstructured text, harvest data from interesting websites and public APIs and about capturing and dealing with sensor data. Examples in this talk will be provided and written in python and will rely on requests, beautifulsoup, mechanicalsoup, pandas and some 3.6+ magic!
