Data Hack Session

How do I gain access to the raw data being collected by my favorite tracking app or device so I can explore my own data? That's the problem we're going to focus on in this month's meetup, which will be a two-hour data hack session. Please join us, whether you are a data hacking pro and would like to show us a nifty way to access a dataset, or you are simply curious to learn more about QS practices.

Here is the meetup format:  starting at 6PM, the first ≈30 mins will be reserved for very brief presentations by anyone who has a project they'd like to share, as a means to facilitate discussion & collaboration. After the presentations, we can split into break-out sessions to delve deeper into any of the presented topics, or people can simple work individually on a project they've brought. 

Jamie Williams will kick things off by giving a quick overview of how he has obtained data from various API's using iPython scripts (github: For the hack session, he plans on working on one of the following:

- Fitbit heart rate data:
- CubeSensor data:

We encourage anyone interested in presenting to share your thoughts in the meetup comment section.

    Burpsuite may help with this, I'll try to play around with it before the meeting.

      That sounds good. I'd love to getting any insight on privacy and security you might have when accessing data via an API.
