Poll Opened Responses

Should this meetup group become less vertical focussed and more technology focussed?

Hi all, In thinking about the last few meetups we have hosted, it occurs to me that getting great speakers with a specific Financial Services vertical message is challenging, and to some extent unnecessary as approaches that are valid in one vertical are often equally valid in another. I am thinking therefore of changing the name of the group to "Big Data Technologies and Architectures" which would allow me to broaden the scope of presenters while still maintaining a focus on the real world and the practical. Before doing this I wanted to consult the members of the group to make sure (most of) you are OK with this change - hence this poll. Please vote. Thanks, Mark.

Which evening and time is preferred for meetups?

Hi members, I have recently taken on leadership of this meetup as I believe it can facilitate discussions of particular interest to us as members with an interest in the applications of analytics and new data types to banking, finance, insurance, etc. I'm lining up presenters for forthcoming meetings which will probably be 4 times a year. So to get started... which night(s) would you prefer to hold the meeting on? And what times would you like to kick off (you can select multiple).
