Data teams everywhere struggle with pipeline debt: untested, undocumented assumptions that drain productivity, erode trust in data and kill team morale. Unfortunately, rolling your own data validation tooling usually takes weeks or months. In addition, most teams suffer from "documentation rot," where data documentation is hard to maintain, and therefore chronically outdated, incomplete, and only semi-trusted.

Great Expectations, the leading open source project for fighting pipeline debt, can solve these problems for you.

As usual, Pizza will be served.

A $5 voluntary donation is requested. Students are excluded from donating.

If you go to and log in as a visitor, you can buy an evening pass for $4. That will let you park in the parking structure that is just north of the INSCC building (in the A, E, and U sections).

Parking is enforced until 8pm. The map below indicates the visitor lots which are easiest to find a spot in

You may try parking in the nearby neighborhood, you risk a city parking ticket; however, with it being so late it may not be heavily enforced.
FYI there is good public transportation to the University.
