This past weekend I am happy to have attended PyData Chicago 2016, put on by PyData and held at the University of Illinois Chicago at the UIC Student Center.  PyData Chicago 2016 was a conference all about using Python along with data science and open source tools to help data scientists, developers, and academics better get their jobs done in a more efficient way.  Before I go any further...
