Data Mascara

Data themed office hours held Monday evenings, 7-9pm.  

This week's topic is regular expressions. Swing by earlier in the evening to hear the very short introductory talk. 

Bring your computer and pick your dataset. The goal is for all of us to get started collecting data for analysis later in the month. You can choose to scrape a website or an existing dataset. We will practice using regular expressions. You're welcome to use the Python re module or tinker with something fuller like Scrapy or Beautiful Soup

Any experts at regular expressions are welcome to show us tricks and tips for mastering this skill. 

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 early.

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)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
