Sebastian Neubauer

Senior Data Scientist at Blue Yonder GmbH

After my PhD in physics I realized in my first job as a Data Scientist at Blue Yonder www.blue-yonder.com, that it takes a lot more than just software and algorithms to deliver value to the customers.

That's when I dived into configuration management, application lifecycle and the design, development and operation of distributed systems in general.

Pietro Battiston

Pyconomist pietrobattiston.it/economics

Ex-almost-mathematician, I moved to economics just in time to not sound too cool, today I'm a researcher.

I started studying Python for fun, as an apparently harmless curiosity, but along the years it has become more and more difficult for me to keep it from intruding into my working life, and today I'm definitely addicted (and contagious).,
