Get Started with Data Cleaning and Mobile Apps with the Battle of Midway

Join us for our September event sponsored and hosted by ILM Professional Services in Edina.  This is a FREE event and a great opportunity for networking and the latest insights in mobile development.

Get Started with Data Cleaning and Mobile Apps with the Battle of Midway

What could the Battle of Midway, Data Cleaning, Machine Learning, C#/.NET, Xamarin.iOS, and MKMapView all possibly have in common? Attend this session to see how the book /Miracle at Midway/ by Gordon W. Prange (et. al) started a software engineer down the still unfulfilled path of using C#, SQLite, Regular Expressions, System.Xml.Linq, Stanford Named Entity Recognizer, Google reverse geolocation services, and pure blind luck, to do data cleaning against the Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships (DANFS) in an attempt to try and map history using MKMapView on iOS.

Presented by Dan Edgar

Dan Edgar is working as a Principal Consultant for ILM Professional Services out of Edina, MN. Throughout his career he has worked on everything from old school Windows applications in C++ to modern UWP apps in C# / XAML, along with modern iOS applications using Objective-C, Swift, and/or Xamarin / C#, along with many Javascript web apps and micro-services in-between. When not fixing someone's computer you can find him running at the back of the pack at your local half-marathon event.

About the Group

Be sure to use the address when mapping to ensure you get the exact location!  There seems to be some old data for their location.

Last month there was construction on the bridge on 77th Street.  It could make it hard to get to ILM from the north for the meeting. 

You may need to head over to France and come South: 

Or go further south to 494 head east to France Ave. exit, then come through via the Frontage Rd: 

We will probably start a little late to account for the detours / delays caused by this construction!
