> *What:*
>    - *The 'collections' module*
>    (0:10:00 Minutes)
>    By: Phil Robare
>    A quick overview of the collections module and its five data
>    structures. The talk will be aimed at the intermediate level python user
>    who has the basic syntax down but has not yet delved into the wealth of
>    programming tools in the standard library.
>    - *pyStan: Bayesian Inference for Fun and Profit*
>    (0:30:00 Minutes)
>    By: Stephen Hoover
>    Probabilistic programming languages offer a flexible and expressive
>    way to model data by treating random variables as first-class objects. Stan
>    is a popular and well-supported library which allows users to write models
>    in the Stan programming language and use MCMC methods to perform Bayesian
>    inference. Stan itself is written in C++, and has a Python interface
>    through the PyStan package. In this talk, I'll show off some of the
>    capabilities of PyStan and go through a simple practical example of
>    Bayesian inference in Python.
>    - *Python, Startups, Tech Debt, and You*
>    (0:20:00 Minutes)
>    By: Matt Erickson
>    There's a lot of people newish to Python and either interested or
>    already in a startup environment (either within a larger corporation or an
>    actual startup). Python makes a *great* tool for that, however while
>    there’s ways to use it to carry your work along to great success, there’s
>    ways to wind up with such spaghetti you’re tempted to throw your hands in
>    the air and go back to Java. The focus on the talk is how to use Python and
>    the tools it provides to avoid the unmaintainable mess while still being
>    able to “cut corners” to get something out the door to make your
>    boss/investors/customers happy.
> Thanks always to all our Platinum sponsors, especially: Braintree,
> Imaginary Landscape, and Telnyx.
> Please be aware of our code of conduct http://www.chipy.org/pages/conduct/
> See you there!
