What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in 'Data Science'. We are not quite sure what the exact definition of a Data Scientist is, but if you deal with something generally related to converting data into useful insight then you will hopefully benefit from joining the group.

Whether you’re in business, academia, or government, and whether you’re an analyst, data miner, programmer, student, electrical engineer, computer scientist, physicist, etc, and you work with data to generate insights, build predictive models, build optimisation models, build reports/dashboards/visualisations, automate analyses, etc, using python, R, SQL, C/C+, Java, Tableau, Excel, Hadoop, etc, and you care about doing it right, efficiently, repetitively, optimally, visually, etc, then join us!

We meet every 6 weeks or so with normally 2 talks, one being of a technical nature. The evening is also for networking over beer and pizza and afterwards we normally continue the discussions down the pub.

*due to demand, we now have morning and lunchtime meetups.

The size of the group means we are reliant on our sponsors to put our events on. Please support them in return:
