Motoki Wu – Analysis of Fukushima radiation data
Aline Lerner – Predictors for getting hired as a software engineer

    Hey all, if you'd like to check out the Public Beta for Plot.ly, we're up and running and would love your feedback. Plot.ly is a collaborative graphing and analytics platform, with Python, R, MATLAB, Julia, Perl, Arduino, and REST APIs. We'd love to hear what you think; I'm at matt at plot dot ly. Thanks!

    Had a lot of fun presenting F# type providers tonight - thanks for the awesome organization, and constructive crowd, in spite of the "data scientists are critical" warnings :) For those of you who are curious about F#, I recommend checking out
    www.fsharp.org: the home of F#, with tons of resources
    http://www.tryfsharp.org/: try out F# in the browser, with tutorials - and see if you like it
    http://bluemountaincapital.github.io/FSharpRProvider/: the F# R type provider
    www.sfsharp.org: the SF F# user group :)

    Same for me! I am on the Waitlist, but not sure how good the chances are. Is there also an option to just go there on Thursday and see if someone doesn't show up?
