Learn with our NYC Data Science Program (http://www.nycdatascience.com/) (We've offered corporate and individual training to more than 40 firms in NYC alone). We offer 12 week immersive program, weekend and weekday night Data Science training.

Join the open house to learn more about our 12-Week Data Science bootcamp (http://nycdatascience.com/bootcamp/). (Apply before Deadline May 6th.) Come to check out our new campus and bootcamp classroom.

===========================

Topic for the night: Riders of the NJ PATH transit system have recently complained about being unable to board overcrowded trains. Armed with the transit system's turnstile data, NYC Data Science Academy students attempted to quantify the number of riders on each train as well as the number of commuters unable to board trains and left at each station. After estimating the rider flow throughout the PATH system's three lines, they wire-framed several visual tools to aid decision-making for PATH officials and analysts in ongoing schedule optimization.

========================================

Every Wednesday evening for the next three weeks (April 15th, 22nd, and 29th), four data scientists from our Data Science Bootcamp will present for 20 minutes on a technical topic of their choice, including topics related to R, Python, D3.js, and Hadoop. Names and topics for discussion each week will be announced at a later date.

Doors open at 6:45pm. Come early to network, grab a beer and settle in. Talks will begin promptly at 7:00pm.

This Meetup is a special opportunity for prospective students to visit the school, meet current students and teachers, and experience our bootcamp first hand. This is also a terrific chance for prospective employers to meet our students.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND, PLEASE RSVP INCLUDING FIRST AND LAST NAME AND EMAIL. WE MUST HAVE THIS FOR SECURITY PURPOSES.

Hope to see you there!
