This group is for anyone interested in analytics. The subjects include descriptive/predictive/etc., data visualizations, data mining/machine learning and other current topics. Technologies involved are R, Python, SAS, SQL, and anything else working with data.
The monthly meetings cover networking, trouble shooting, and normally a presentation. These are almost always one-off meetings. So, if you can only make it every once in awhile or you need a break from the meetings but want to come back eventually, that will totally work.
There's a slack channel if you want to get involved but can't make the meetings or want to see more of the group. For example, recent articles get posted and there's a list of potential presentations. Just message Tyler, the organizer, for a link.
The general meeting agenda is
Introductions: 10 - 15 min
Main presentation/topics: 15 min - 1 hour
Networking/trouble shooting problems for the rest of the meeting
Since it's the first meeting of the year, I'd like to get feedback for the Meetup and go over options for 2020. I'll send out a survey in early January to get feedback/ideas/options from members that can't make this meeting. If you have any changes or anything you want to keep occurring with Meetup group, let me know.
