Union at PyData Seattle 2023

Every year, PyData Seattle brings together experts, practitioners, and enthusiasts in the field of data science and machine learning for three days of talks, tutorials and events. Attendees learn about and share best practices, methodologies, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization. is excited to share that we will be attending the PyData Seattle conference, which will take place April 26-28. Our investment highlights our continued efforts to support the Python community and ecosystem - which is stronger than ever. As a Diamond sponsor, we are proud to have contributed five diversity scholarships to make the conference more accessible to underrepresented data practitioners. We hope you enjoy and learn from the talks and tutorials we have planned for the conference.

Talks and Tutorials

On Wednesday, April 26, data practitioners that are interested in learning about building ML modelscan watch Engineering Manager Eduardo Apolinario, walk through the tutorial Flyte: Robust and End-to-End Cloud Native Machine Learning & Data Processing Platform. Eduardo will address current obstacles that arise when developing ML models: scalability, data quality, reproducibility, recoverability and auditability. He’ll demonstrate how Flyte (the open-source data and ML orchestration tool managed by can be used to build a ML model and fine-tune with new data to further train the model. 

There will be another tutorial, Building Machine Learning Microservices & MLOps using Union ML happening on the 26th, led by Flyte community members Shivay Lamba and Gaurav Pandey. They will walk through the basics of machine learning in Python and how UnionML can be used to deploy ML applications and release them to production for various prediction use cases.

Want to learn more about data tools in today’s Python ecosystem? Then tune into The Python Data Ecosystem: Navigating a fragmented landscape on Friday, April 28. In this talk, Ketan Umare (CEO and co-founder of, and creator of Flyte) and Yee Tong (founding engineer of and Flyte) will identify common pitfalls when making data tooling decisions in a fragmented world. They will also explore the factors and design patterns that data teams should know to future-proof their projects with scalability, ease of use and interoperability.

Meet the Team will also be sponsoring a Flyte community happy hour at Locust Cider Redmond on April 27th from 7-9pm. Stop by for food, drinks, and conversations about workflow orchestration and scaling complex ML projects in production! To RSVP and receive updates, fill out the Google Form

If you have any questions about our presentations or about Flyte itself, stop by our booth to speak with engineers and product leaders. We’re passionate about helping practitioners make the most of their data and machine-learning projects, and we look forward to engaging with attendees and sharing our expertise with the community.

We hope to see you there!
