DataScienceLab - A meetup for data scientists, or those interested in data science (hacking data) to come together to build an output focussed community directed towards the practical aspects or the doing of data science.
The primary focus of this group will be on doing good with data science through hackathons and other data hacking projects & events arranged in association with organisations actively involved in the making our world into a better place; charities, NGOs etc.
Meetup schedule will consist of a mix of events alternating between practical data hacking events(hackathons) and talks, workshops & presentations focussed on increasing acuity, skill levels and facility with data science processes, concepts and tools.
The plan is to organise our first Hackathon in April with the objective of running one hackathon every two months, and in the intervening months to schedule in talks/workshops etc.
If you love hacking data and you want to create real, tangible and positive impact in the world with your knowledge and data gungfu then this is the place to be.
