Having recently been to see the Barbie movie, it got us thinking: Barbie and Python have more things in common than meets the eye (step aside Ken!). For a start, they are both pioneers in their respective fields: Barbie is a famous fashion doll owned by millions of people around the globe, while Python is a famous programming language with millions of users worldwide. Barbie is well known for her wide range of careers, outfits and accessories.

Python is a general purpose, high level language which, thanks to its simplicity and versatility, has become very popular, especially within the data science community. The extensive Python community has developed and contributed thousands of libraries and packages over the years in a plethora of different disciplines to aid developers with their applications. Managing these packages can be a challenging task without the correct tools. That’s where Python package managers come in.
There’s only two weeks left to go until Shiny in Production 2023! The events team are hard at work getting things ready for the day, and we wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our event sponsors! Gold Sponsor National Innovation Centre for Data The National Innovation Centre for Data (NICD) was created in 2019 with £30 million of funding from the government and Newcastle University.
Jupyter notebooks are a useful tool for Python users of all levels. They allow us to mix together plain text (formatted as Markdown) with Python code. This is beneficial for beginners and experienced data scientists alike: Beginners that are learning Python for the first time can use Markdown cells to annotate code and record notes. By splitting up their code into chunks, developers can write and test their code in a modular manner.
