*Talks*
*What is this, Java?*
By: Heather White
AttributeError: property has no setter.  But... I thought this was Python!
Let's have a talk about descriptors.

*Open Source Bar Exam Prep Using Anki*
By: Kat Ross
I will be presenting some of my current work using Python and Django to
develop an open source program for professional students. This program
enables students to easily peer-review and create a functioning deck of
unique Anki flashcards without any prior programming experience. Anki is
currently the most sought after open source flash card creation system by
professional students. However due to a learning curve (and time) required
to create a quality deck, many students still do not take advantage of this
resource. This program seeks to change that. Come see and hear how!

*Transcribing Human Gestures With Mediapipe in Python*
By: Jimmy Scray
Have you wondered how gestures are loaded into a computer?
Or are you questioning if transcribing our movements is even possible?
Well, it is possible... But not without its own unique set of problems.
This talk touches on everything in the transcription process from the
client side to the server side.
So how did we do it?
We used Mediapipe's machine-learning neural net library to transcribe our
movements and gestures to XYZ coordinates. We then created a web crawler to
transcribe all of the data from the American Sign Language (ASL) website.
We are in the process of normalizing this data based on angles related to
one another.
The next step of the process, transcribing live gestures and movements is
still in development, so let's talk about it!
