Note: Please notice it is a webcast workshop.

It is our new approach to bring global talents to teach and give talks through webcast. We got great feedback when we did webcast teaching with Professor Ramnath at Citi bike visualization hack session: http://www.meetup.com/NYC-Open-Data/events/129961432/ . We felt sorry the audio effect was bad in last Kaggler Talk and will defintely improve it this time.
