Matthew Russell from Digital Reasoning will walk us through in depth some of the techniques he covers in his new book Mining the Social Web: Data Mining Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, GitHub, and More.
If you received a copy of the book at the last meet up, please post a topic (or topics) you would like Matt to cover in his talk. If you do not already have a copy of the book, you can take a look at the table of contests here:
A gathering of current and aspiring Data Science practitioners. We focus on practical applications of exploratory data analysis, statistics, machine learning and data visualization to solve interesting problems in any field. Our aim is to create a forum for discussing the techniques of data science, independent of the tools used for it. Meeting topics are varied and range from tutorials on basic concepts and their applications, to success stories from local practitioners, to discussions of tools, new technologies, and best practices. All are welcome -- to attend, to meet others, and to present their work!
