Better awareness of what's happening in the data science community as it relates to business here in the local Nashville market (especially with healthcare). Also, new relationships.
I studied computer science in undergrad and grad school, and I've been involved with applications of various machine learning technologies (especially as it relates to text and natural language) most of my professional career.
I tend to prefer Python and have especially grown to appreciate IPython Notebook for experimentation and collaboration over the past year or so.
