Data Mascara

Data Analytics themed office hours held every Monday evening, 7-9pm.

Let's chat about human factors in data science! The group topic for this session is about improving the presentation of data visualizations on the GUI.  Here are some links to introductory UX concepts:

52 weeks of UX

UX Crash Course

• The Data Visualization Beginner’s Toolkit #1: Books and Other Resources

This will be like a show & tell format! Send me a message if you'd like to share some work (yours, or something you found) so we can discuss as a group why some UIs are better than others.

If you're new to data science and looking for a way to start, you're more than welcome to join us. Give us a heads up by posting questions/thoughts in comments below. 

The host is allowing us to use their conference rooms, so feel free to bring your project to work on in one of the rooms.


Our host for the evening is NewsCred. Bring an ID to sign in at the front desk and take the elevator to the 6th floor. Please RSVP by Friday at Noon if there's even the slightest chance you are interested in showing up so we can plan for a larger group and trim provisions as necessary.


NewsCred offers a content marketing and syndication platform built with Python that allows clients to quickly discover meaningful new articles and images with the help of data science, manage their content, plan their editorial calendars, and measure their ROIs.  (read more)

    Is anyone planning to share their work tonight with the group? I didn't hear from anyone about presenting.

      I'm out sick tonight, but for later sessions I'd be happy to demo and talk about the process of "munging" my own messy dataset (a bunch of time-series-like output from a motor performance task) in ipython/pandas, if there would be any interest.

    the map link on this page didn't work for me. could be my browser. remember... the building #'s for Park Ave are not the same as South Park Ave. anyway, this link worked better for me: http://www.mapquest.com/maps?address=386%20Park%20Ave%20S&city=New%20York&state=NY&zipcode=10016

      Thanks, I tried updating the address and the link to map worked fine for me. Let me know if there are any issues. The cross street to the building is 27th St
