What we're about

Are you someone who is actively engaged in data science self-study, learning on your own about as many relevant topics as possible? Do you have an interest on the internals of machine learning algorithms? Do you enjoy reading about statistics and linear algebra? If this sounds like you, this meetup group may be the perfect place to connect with others who are learning on their own, as well.

This group is aimed at individuals WITHOUT any advanced degrees or current enrollment in a program or formal education (a degree or bootcamp) in data science. It is meant for those with an interest in data science and machine learning, who are actively using online resources (i.e. Kaggle, Coursera, DataCamp) to create projects and teach themselves about various topics.

The goal of this group is to meet with others as a way of remaining motivated in our self-learning and project creation. Our meetups are meant to be networking opportunities, where we also co-work (independently on our own projects, reading, or online courses) for the duration of the time.

If you are interested, please join our group and come with an open mind.

October Data Science Learning Meetup

WeWork

Hey all, The basic format will be to spend 5-10 minutes introducing ourselves. Following that, we will all be studying or working on projects, either by ourselves or in small groups. Make sure to bring something to work on! The goal is to be a support group for those of us who are studying data science and machine learning on our own, without a bootcamp, university, or other institution. These kinds of institutions already have their own ways of supporting one another. There are no good support groups for those of us who are self-studying. As such, I would expect that you DO NOT HAVE an advanced degree in anything related to statistics / data science / machine learning / artificial intelligence. The room is provided by WeWork. They should have WiFi available.
