The Toronto Data Science Group alternates between generalist events and developer focused events. This will be the Fourth technical event.

Both audiences, those who are interested in data science, and those who are practitioners of data science are invited, and can both expect to learn something new.

Attendees can expect to learn what data science is, its applications, and what's going on in Toronto's data science community. Significant 'getting to know you' time is deliberately set aside.
