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 (http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/bio-in-docker-symposium-2015-tickets-16296680811)Event 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!

Snakemake & something else ...

Hays Life Sciences Recruitment - London

Yes, we're tardy but there is a meeting. There will be two talks: Mystery Guest "something very interesting" and Paul Agapow (Imperial College) "Snakemake, for humane workflows & reproducibility" Have a complicated multi-step analysis? Tired of cryptic or jury-rigged pipelines? The Snakemake is a tool to create reproducible and scalable data analyses via a human readable, Python based language. I demonstrate how I used it for a hideously complicated analysis to generate easily digestible results via a single commandline script. Some advice is given about where Snakemake is (and isn't useful) and some tips and tricks. Ticketing is required (via EventBrite just to get names for security purposes), but the event will still be free. Approximate schedule: 6:30: doors open 6:45: chitchat, announcements 7:00: talk starts 7:45: talk ends, adjourn to pub
