[Baypiggies] BayPiggies October Meeting: Python, Group Theory, Graph Databases

*Thursday October 27, 2022 7:00 pm*

This month, we will have a lightning talk from Lisette del Pino on group
theory and a full talk on graph databases and Python from Jason Koo. Please
join us for these exciting talks!
Lightning Talk: Group Theory

Groups are a fundamentally important mathematical structure for both
computer scientists and mathematicians. For example, the graph isomorphism
problem is reducible to the group isomorphism problem, and group theoretic
tools are essential in quantum computing.

This lightning talk will quickly get you up and running in the basics of
group theory, motivated by important examples such as dihedral groups,
additive/multiplicative groups of integers modulo n, and matrix groups.
After this, current Python tools for group theory work, such as SAGE and
the GAP wrapper for SAGE, will be introduced.

Speaker Bio: Lisette del Pino

Lisette works in data science and loves both math and computer science. She
holds an undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of
Pennsylvania and is currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Computer
Science from Georgia Tech. In her spare time, she collaborates on research
in computational group theory.
Main Talk: Evidence for Graph Databases

Join us as we traverse the use of crime walls in movies and TV shows - as a
graph. Along the way we’ll discover why Graph Databases are becoming
increasingly popular, what technologies are currently available, and how to
get started with them.

Speaker Bio: Jason Koo

Video Editor turned Pythonista, Jason Koo is Neo4j’s resident Python
Developer Advocate. He has gone from working behind-the-scenes in Hollywood
to developing mobile apps for Silicon Valley companies. He now leverages
his love of both worlds to advocate new developer technologies.
Code of Conduct

https://baypiggies.net/pages/code_of_conduct.html Interactions online have
less nuance than in-person interactions. Please be Open, Considerate and
Respectful. Also, please refrain from discussing topics unrelated to the
Python community or the technical content of the meeting.

Due to recent issues in Zoom security, we will change the format slightly.
We will conduct the meeting via Zoom webinar. Please RSVP at MeetUp:
https://www.meetup.com/baypiggies/events/289014736/. When you RSVP "Yes" to
this event, a link that allows you to signup for the Zoom meeting will
become visible in MeetUp. The email address you provide must match the
email address of your Zoom account, or you will not be able to log in.
Thanks for your understanding.
