Kedro Sprint (ALL Levels)

Let’s start contributing in the new year and new decade! We will kick off London Python Sprint with Kedro - A Python library that implements software engineering best-practice for data and ML pipelines. You can have a look at their GitHub repo and documentation page

We will have the developing team from Quantum Black to lead the sprint. As always, we welcome new contributors. You can have a look at their issues and see if you can find something you want to work on.

For beginners in open-source, we will have a beginners table for making your first pull request on GitHub.

Kedro is a development workflow framework that implements software engineering best-practice for data pipelines with an eye towards productionising machine learning models. Kedro is built upon our collective best-practice (and mistakes) trying to deliver real-world ML applications that have vast amounts of dirty data. It helps structure reproducible, scalable, deployable, robust and versioned data and machine learning pipelines. It is applicable to a wide range of projects, from single user projects running on a local environment, when you want to have an organised way of working, to enterprise-level team projects, when your team needs to work in a structured way and reduce the effort required to take machine learning models into the production environment.
