   - *Three Python Nuances I Wish I'd Known Earlier*
   By: Jess Unrein
   Experience Level: Novice
   I'll briefly go over three Python gotchas that have given me headaches
   in the past that I wish I had known about earlier. We'll talk about a good
   use case for deepcopy, why default mutable arguments are unexpectedly
   tricky, and the difference "is" and "==" comparators.
   - *What's the deal with Florida's news?*
   By: Jordan Nelson
   Experience Level: Novice
   When thinking about Florida News many have heard of the ubiquitous
   Florida man. This talk will look at news from around the country and attempt
   to quantify if Florida man truly exists. I used Python to build functions
   that scrape satirical, national, and local news sites and built a basic
   model to compare news across various states. Python libraries highlighted
   in this talk include: requests, Beautiful Soup, and sklearn.

   the project.
