    Hi, is there a capacity limit for the venue? I'm asking because I RSVP'd for a different Meetup group event at google campus a few weeks ago, yet when I arrived was refused entry because it was full. I was glad the event was popular but it takes time and effort to get there.

    • David F G.

      Marie we are working on an additional room to spill over into and we will give details and final numbers by end of day tomorrow.

    Hi Marie,

    Yes, there is a capacity limit for the room we have , but we are working with Google campus on 2 different options to accommodate all our members who have RSVPed. We hope to get clarity tomorrow morning . We are hopeful that one of the options will work out. In any case , we will inform final numbers definitely by end of day tomorrow.

    Hi,

    The date on your site says it's Thursday 7th Nov. However, the campuslondon site says Tuesday 5th November. Can you confirm which date is correct please?

    Regards,

    • Sarvesh

      Hi James, Welcome to the group and thanks for pointing it out. We are planning for a change of date to 5th November in case our efforts to get a large room on 7th Nov at Google campus does not work out. We have got a confirmed large room on 5th Nov and that's why it is showing up in the campus calendar. We will announce any changes by weekend. I am hoping to have as many of us as possible to attend in our first event of this group.

      The haves and the have-nots of a data-driven world creates an intriguing cliff-hanger. As the drama unfolds, will the "data haves" _decisively_ come out on top (excuse the pun)?
