What we're about

Data Scientists in Seattle are doing incredible work: making graph models of symptoms and human disease, extracting insight from huge amounts of real-time data, and building tools to make the whole process easier. We founded this Meetup to provide them with a continued opportunity to promote and contribute to this expanding field.

This Meetup is organized by Galvanize, which runs an immersive 12-week program for data scientists, engineers, and analysts in Seattle and other campuses in the US. Learn more or sign up for our course here (http://www.galvanize.com/courses/data-science/).
