DataPotluck #9 - Data Science Fellowship, and New City and Foundations Projects

Please join us for Data Potluck #9, where everybody brings something to pass in ideas, and something pass in meals.

Rough and flexible agenda:

1. Food! Either: 
* Bring a dish or food item to share, or 
* Bring a few dollars to contribute if you're strapped for time.

Nick, Young-Jin, Matt will make sure there are extra veggie-friendly plates and drinks.

2. Roundtable - Who's here, why, and how do you want to get involved?

3. Talking tools, methods and ideas:

This week we are honored to have the new Data Science for Social Good summer fellowship (http://dssg.io/; generously funded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt) hosting the space, and presenting some of their projects with city agencies, foundations, and non-profits. The fellows themselves will be on hand, describing project goals, their tools, and their methods. Each project is, by design, developing open source tools, so come join, make connections, and share ideas.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Note: Please RSVP 24 hours ahead of the meetup so that we prepare food and set up the room accordingly.

    The meetup was awesome. My wife and I loved hearing about the Fellows' projects and meeting some of the Fellows, as well as everyone else. The confidence, enthusiasm, maturity, and honest good will of the young people I meet here makes me happy and hopeful for the future.
