BhamQuants is a group of analytics professionals who believe in upgrading ourselves through continuing education. We meet regularly for fun, networking, free food and drinks, and relevant lectures. This group of people can help you at your current position and with finding a new position.
Currently we have two groups that each meet every month:
BhamQuants - Analytics: Meets at Cobbs Allen off of Highway 280 near the Mountain Brook exit. The lecture topic varies widely, but it always relevant to people that work in analytics. We target meeting on the first Wednesday of the month.
BhamQuants - Power BI: Meets at Samford on the third Tuesday of every month. The overall goal of this group is to prepare you for the exam 70-778 "Analyzing and Visualizing Data with Microsoft Power BI" which is the official Microsoft certification for the software. Of course, there are plenty of other practical topics and issues that are addressed. Everyone from beginner to expert is encouraged to attend.
