Do you work in marketing, sales, PR, HR, recruiting, or non-IT capacity?

What's your problem?! No, seriously, how can I help...

Are you based in London or travel to London monthly?

5 years ago I was a PhD Chemist but I had a lucky break (literally broke a lab) and got out of that sinking industry and into something with decent growth prospects... I love data science because there are trails to follow around every corner.

Are you direclty involved in a data science project? Are you doing any data science hacking, development, implementation? Are you a quant? Data miner? Statistician? Software developer? IT engineer? BI Analyst?

Mostly work on business analysis and research around data sources and platforms. At 1000heads we have built our own WOMTrak tool which brings together lots of different sources to give a brand a view on the people talking about them, their advocacy etc. Mostly working with MongoDB, Lucene, postgresql and interested in hadoop. Also would love to know more about how people are approaching the data protection act.

Why are you interested in joining this data science community?
