What we're about
Do you like to play with data?
Do you like to use the latest open source tools and techniques to make data driven decisions?
Do you want to learn about more than one type of open source tool or data set?
If you answered 'yes' to any of those questions, this group is for you! Our goal is simple - to be the central hub for the various data and open source tool communities and provide high quality sessions on:
open source data tools
The open source data tooling space is flourishing - from database version control, statistics and data modeling, to even the giant yellow elephant in the room. We'll show how to put all the pieces together to make higher impact within your projects/organizations.
the latest trends on working with data
New techniques for working with data - be it storage, modeling, reporting, or diagramming - are coming out at a fast clip. Keep up to date and take advantage of them and meet other folks who may also be using the same method.
open data sets
While it's fun being able to play with huge data sets at work, it's hard to be able to share innovations because the data must remain secure. We promote open data sets that everyone can work and learn with.
