PyData London 2019 – https://pydata.org/london2019/ review on 21st July 2019

The nice part about the conference is that they offer ticket scholarships for underrepresented groups in tech and women are more than welcome to apply. The organizers pointed out that it would be great to see more women join the PyData community. The application for the scholarship is quite simple: there is only a one page form to fill up  -> see https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdS9_TRgLIgrkFIxscMtpfhAWCXrGOtRsj0aFaVDIpk_OivBg/viewform.

I also have only good things to say about the organizers, who try to make everyone feel as welcome and included as possible. We had a diversity lunch event this year and we had free childcare and a nursing room on the premises as well!
