Hello Anidata Community!
Thank you for your patience as we worked to plan your next event. We are very excited to announce that John Keltz will be our speaker in 8 days! John, previously, was the Director of Research and Evaluation at Atlanta Public Schools. He managed a team of data strategists and researchers to analyze and produce comprehensive information. John will speak with us about his experience with APS and especially, what it takes to work with producing meaningful education data. His passion for developing crucial data to parents of APS students has lead him to now working in a contractor capacity to the school system. John will, also, have a project pitch involving a piece of his current work to empower parents in the decision-making process of providing their children the best education opportunities.
You don't want to miss out on this. Whether you are a parent, parent-to-be, or are choosing to not have children, the generations to come will be decision-makers when we're ready to retire. Yikes!
Lastly, remember to bring your laptop for some coding fun afterwards!
(P.S. - Apologies for the earlier incomplete announcement draft. I interpreted "Save" as "Save Draft" for whatever reason.)
See you all next week!
We are located at General Assembly, which is on the second floor of Ponce City Market (on the side of the building closest to Midtown).
What you can expect:
- John Keltz, APS + Project Pitch
- Break for Code
