26 people went


Welcome to the Chicago Big Data Analytics Group, the Chicago-based arm of the Bay Area Big Data Analytics Forum, for knowledge transfer and connections among those with a passion for applied analytics around digital, social media, mobile, geo-spatial and other big data. This is a cross-channel and industry/vendor agnostic group bringing like minds together to further progress along the big data analytics frontier.

Join the group for the launch of the Chicago-based Big Data Analytics forum for group and event planning, networking and more.

Agenda for Kickoff Event:

Informal Networking, Group Intro and mixer, member introductions, planning for upcoming speakers, events. Opportunity session - job seekers or employers with open roles can post on white board and connect. The purpose of the kickoff is to define the group collectively, share backgrounds, identify speakers/sponsors, and mix and mingle.

Now for the necessary administrative details. This is a cash bar event. There's no charge for the event or membership since Core Analytics sponsors our monthly MeetUp fees. (The Tasting Room has a great selection of wines and Monday is 1/2 price glass night and a fantastic selection. Please try to keep to at least a 1 drink minimum (if Monday is too early in the week for happy hour a non-alcoholic beverage works fine too) so we make sure the Tasting Room welcomes us back. They also have an excellent menu if you care to check it out. Please try to bring cash to facilitate easy group bill-management and please drink responsibly :) That said, hopefully many of our future events will be sponsored as the group evolves!
