Ever wonder where all your local Starbucks are located in relation to you or how you can analyze the upcoming presidential election, or wanted to understand the basics of a recommendation system?
In this workshop, we will go through a few short examples to get users familiar with an API, mapping, and some data correlations.
We will add updates as the workshop approaches about which software packages to install in preparation. Looking forward to seeing everyone!
