Data Science Global Hackathon

Good evening. I hope you can attend the Chicago R User's Group meet-up on Thursday evening. The talks should be good... and you can't argue with free pizza.

There will be a special announcement. Rob Lancaster from Orbitz is organizing Chicago's entry into the Data Science Global Hackathon scheduled for Saturday, April 28. He is seeking data-head people who would like to participate. He'll be at our meet-up on Thursday to announce the event and find participants. I am sending this advance notice to let R folks check out the Hackathon before Thursday evening and considering joining. It could be a blast.

Read more about the Hackathon at­, or contact Rob directly at

There will likely be an official sign-up location in the near future, but by RSVPing to the above we'll make sure you're caught up on the latest developments.
