The World Cup of Rugby is on. Join me as I talk about how you can use Python and the PyData stack to gain insight into Rugby.
I've a case study from the Six Nations last year, where I leveraged Bayesian Statistics to extract insight.
I'll also give other examples of the power of PyMC3.

I've given similar talks in the past but I'll revamp this one for the format of PyCon. And I'll probably share my case study for the World Cup predictions!
