What we're about

A group for all those coders and open source champions. Git lovers, Container enthusiasts, applied Bio-/Health-/Medical-Informaticians and Machine Learners. ELK stack fans, software devs and engineers and UX/UI designers. For all those general computer and data science folks that are interested in meeting like-minded practitioners to chat/rant and play; set some standards, and hopefully, start and do some interesting things with real world applications.

This meetup is a spin-off and extension of our [Bio in Docker] 2015 ( and more (I hope). It will evolve depending on input from members. Open to suggestions. We'll get some themes up and running and start meeting up summer time(ish).

It's open to all and any industry/profession.

More soon... I am in the early days of planning, but, do come and get involved

Ps. You don't need to be in London or the UK to take part in this group!
