What we're about

Data Scientists in Los Angeles are doing incredible data science: making graph models of symptoms and human disease, extracting insight from huge amounts of data in real time, and building tools to make this whole process easier. We founded this Meetup as a forum to showcase that work. This Meetup is organized by Galvanize. Galvanize trains data scientits by offering a 3 month data science immersive and a year long Masters in Data Science accredited through the University of New Haven.

A Brief Introduction to the Elastic Stack for Data Scientists

To attend this event, you must RSVP on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-brief-introduction-to-the-elastic-stack-for-data-scientists-tickets-122149661927 A brief Introduction to the Elastic Stack for Data Scientists About this Event Come and find out about two key pieces of software at the heart of the Elastic Stack which you’ll likely encounter in the wild West of the tech industry, and get a brief, hands-on introduction. We’ll focus on using visualisations at the very start of any data science project. We'll also explore the dataset and interfacing with a Jupyter notebook to access our data. Meet the Speaker: Emanuil Tolev is a Community Engineer with Elastic, the company behind the open source Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, APM, Kibana, Beats, Logstash, etc). He’s based in London. He ran a small open science web dev consultancy with partners for several years. Interested in mentorship, inclusion, small businesses, archery and always curious about how the world works in detail. See more of Emanuil's talks on the Elastic Community YouTube channel. Agenda: 10:00am - 10:05am - Greetings and introductions to: the Elastic Students & Higher Ed program, the Elastic Community 10:05am - 10:50am - Elastic Stack for Data Science presentation 10:50am - 11:00am - Q&A and wrap up Feel free to reach out to [masked] with any questions surrounding this event - hope to see you there!

[Webinar] Intro to SQL and RDBMS

Online event

You must register at the provided eventbrite link (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/intro-to-sql-and-rdbms-tickets-121105924079) In order to get your zoom link to attend this event! Event Description: Join Galvanize for an evening lecture on SQL and relational database management systems (RDBMS). In this lecture, you will learn what SQL and RDBMS are, who uses it, when it is used, and, most importantly, how it is used. We will then break down the basics of querying and joining. Next, we will introduce NoSQL RDBMS and contrast the differences in functionality between the two commonly used types of RDBMS. The lecture will conclude with a brief live demonstration on how to make a table in SQL, query and join and two tables, and discuss SQL's built in functions. All in all, this lecture will show you how and why SQL has become so incredibly ubiquitous to all manners of business since its creation in 1970. Are you interested in joining the Galvanize Data Science Immersive? SQL is one of the key skills leveraged by the immersive and in data science/analyst careers. Take this first step, and be ready from the start when SQL is introduced in the immersive! Target Audience: This is workshop geared towards beginner data scientists, engineers, and analysts interested in learning the basics of SQL What You Will Learn: - What SQL is - How and when it is used - What a relational database management system does - The differences between SQL and NoSQL - Basic querying How to Prepare: - Have the Zoom Client for Video Meetings installed well before the webinar begins: https://zoom.us/download - Any other relevant information and download requirements before the event - You must register at the provided eventbrite link (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/intro-to-sql-and-rdbms-tickets-121105924079) In order to get your zoom link to attend this event!
