To get to know other people interested in data science, and to learn from them and share with them what I have learned.
I sit right next to Grant at work :)
My focus has traditionally been on pure software development, but in recent years, I've been delving more into math/stats/ai/ml/data science, and am interested in continuing to learn more.
I was very impressed by the turnout. I felt like it was a group I could both learn from, and share knowledge with.
