We're moving our regular meetup to coincide with Big Data Week in Atlanta.
Join us as we learn more about data science from women superstars in the industry. At whatever stage of your career and whatever your specialty, be it a Statistician, Developer, Designer, Marketing specialist or a little of everything, we're hoping to create an opportunity for everyone to learn. This meetup will help us better understand data science, but also give us a chance to discuss wider issues of this new data age.
Erica Baity, Senior Executive at ScanData Solutions and founder of TechieChic, will be starting us off with a presentation introducing the key concepts of data science.
Next we'll have a fireside chat with a panel of women working in various aspects of data science. They'll share their experiences, give tips on how to move into a career in data and answer any questions you might have.
• 7pm - 7:20pm Eat, Greet, Mingle
• 7:20pm - 7:40pm Intro to Data Science
• 7:40 - 9pm Panel Discussion
Bring any questions you have. Plenty of food and drinks will be provided.
A big thanks to our sponsor ThoughtWorks for hosting this event!
