What we're about

This is a group for women and non-binary persons interested in Machine Learning and Data Science. We meet to socialize, and to discuss machine learning and data science in an informal setting with the purpose of building a community around women in these fields. We are openly inclusive of anyone who identifies as female, genderqueer or non-binary. Men who support our mission are invited to attend our meetups as guests of female members or with permission from the organizers (please send a message to introduce yourself!), though priority will be given to female members if an event is overbooked.

Our Code of Conduct (https://github.com/WiMLDS/starter-kit/wiki/Code-of-conduct) applies to all our spaces, both online and off.

• The official twitter account for the Bay Area meetup is @WiMLDS_BayArea (https://twitter.com/wimlds_bayarea) and our email is bayarea@wimlds.org.

• Follow @wimlds (https://twitter.com/wimlds) on Twitter for general WiMLDS news or visit http://wimlds.org to learn about our chapters in other cities.

• Women & non-binary folks are invited to join the global WiMLDS Slack group by sending an email to slack@wimlds.org.

Code and Coffee East Bay

Passione Caffe

Come join us for some coding and coffee! This will be a casual co-working event, not a coding workshop. No agenda, no lesson plan, no instructors or mentors. Bring your laptop to work on your own projects or meet people who are working on similar projects and collaborate together. You can be social or you can be focused; this is a supportive space for the community. We typically end up doing a mixture of coding and chatting (and pizza eating). For questions about Code and Coffee East Bay, please message Dana Seidel, Sara Stoudt, or Marija Stanojcic through the Meetup site or @Dana, @Sara Stoudt, or @Marija Stanojcic on the WiMLDS Slack group.
