   - *Getting up to speed with Dask*
   By: Aaron Richter

   Dask is a parallel computing library for Python people. This talk will
   be a gentle introduction to Dask, showing how you can improve the speed of
   data science code on your laptop with a simple "pip install". Then we will
   use the same code to process big data on a cluster of machines. We will be
   going through an end-to-end data science pipeline, from ETL and exploratory
   analysis to machine learning model training and scoring.

   We will cover:
   - Example using publicly available data and single-node Python
   - Pandas for data cleaning/transformation
   - Scikit-learn for machine learning
   - How to parallelize this workflow on a laptop and then a cluster using
   - Distributed model training
   - Distributed inference/scoring
   - *Dangers of the Python Standard Library*
   By: Andrew Scott

   As a developer, you are the first line when it comes to security for any
   products you may be building. There is often a misconception that all
   software security vulnerabilities are due to misconfigurations, using
   unmaintained open source libraries, using "insecure" languages, or by
   making dumb mistakes like hard-coding passwords. In actuality, it can be
   very easy to make potentially extreme security mistakes even only using
   built-in functions and libraries bundled with the latest version of Python.
   This talk will cover a number of these potential security mistakes that can
   be all too easy to make.
