What we're about
The Portland Data Science group focuses on learning and implementing techniques in data collection, mining, retrieval, munging, analysis, and visualization. Members largely use Python, and some R, but this is essentially a language agnostic group and all technologies are welcomed! We aim to help beginners but have advanced practitioners in the community as well.
