This is a group for anyone interested in Data Science, Machine Learning and the intersection of Math/Statistics with Software Engineering and Computer Science. Data Science is an exciting field today and almost all industries are already changing because of the increasing number of tools that enable us to analyze large amounts of data. I started this meetup after working as a Data Scientist in San Francisco Bay Area for a year but moving to Saratoga Springs because of my wife's job. I badly missed the many data science related meetups I would go to in bay area so I decided to start my own here. This meetup is for people who want to sharpen their skills or get started in data science and programming through self-study and those want to share their knowledge with those around them. I am myself biased towards Python, which is the language I used for my data science work but I welcome all technologies. Just bring your enthusiasm and perseverance.
