I am a developer, solidly in the Microsoft camp: VB.Net programming, Access, Excel, Power Pivot, SQL Server, SSAS, and SSIS. I have a passion for creating applications that end users enjoy using and maintain themselves.
The SF Data Mining meetup simply aims to bring together people with interests spanning data science, big data, and data visualization. The group has no affiliations--it's just an extension of the community in San Francisco. If you'd like to speak at or host one of our gatherings, let us know!
