Lo que hacemos

Data Scientists in Austin are doing incredible, cutting-edge work: making graph models of symptoms and human disease, extracting insight from huge amounts of data in real time, and building tools to improve business decisions, services and everyday life. We founded this Meetup as a forum to showcase that work.

This Meetup is organized by Galvanize Austin. Galvanize offers an industry-leading 13-week full-time Data Science Immersive program, which prepares students to join data science teams at top Austin companies, like Civitas, SparkCognition and Indeed.

Full Stack Data Analytics

Galvanize - Austin

RSVP HERE TO ATTEND: http://bit.ly/31hBCxD Description: The best business decisions are informed by data. Making data-driven decisions is an increasingly fundamental part of any successful businesses. For senior leadership, back end developers, and front end developers alike, literacy in data analysis offers a superpower for unlocking the deepest mysteries of products and customers. This talk will walk through the entire process of engineering your own data analytics pipeline, including deciding which metrics to track to understand your business needs, optimizing the development of your data warehouse using techniques like MapReduce and inverted indices, and building engaging and insightful visualizations using software like Tableau, Pandas, Chart.js, and D3. This will include real-world examples from companies that have leveraged data analysis techniques to uncover invaluable insights. RSVP HERE TO ATTEND: http://bit.ly/31hBCxD Speaker: Carter Robinson is a Technical Business Analyst at Indeed, a role in which he works a full stack developer on multiple data analytics pipelines. He is a proud graduate of the HRATX34 cohort and a former Hacker in Residence for Hack Reactor @ Galvanize. Carter holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Brown University.

Parents Learn To Code

Galvanize - Austin

Are you a parent who wants to learn how to code, but aren’t sure how to manage school full-time with a child? I know exactly how you feel. I’m Navira and I build technical learning communities for Galvanize. Before that, I was a stay-at-home-mom with a 2-year-old. I decided to enroll in Hack Reactor: a full-time coding bootcamp. It wasn’t a walk in the park (to say the least), but graduation day was an immensely proud moment both for myself and my family. There are many other stories like mine, and I invite you to join me and other parents to talk about these experiences. This panel event is for parents who are curious about attending a full-time school (like a coding bootcamp) but aren’t sure whether it’s feasible. We will explore topics such as time management, the potential impact on families, what worked (and what didn’t), and much more. Please send me an email if you would like to ask a specific question!

Accuracy of Predictive Models for Data Science

Galvanize - Austin

Measuring the accuracy of a predictive model is straightforward since most modeling frameworks make it easy to compute a host of accuracy statistics. The problem is statistics by themselves don’t communicate the accuracy of a model in a way that helps stakeholders understand how to use it effectively. In this talk, Dave DeCaprio from ClosedLoop.ai will discuss some of the challenges inherent in communicating modeling results to nonstatistical audiences, and some practical approaches he has used to overcome these challenges during his 15 years of data science work in healthcare. In particular, Dave will show two simple graphs he has found to be very effective in communicating accuracy and demonstrating the real-world impact a predictive model can have. Examples will be drawn from healthcare, but the lessons are generally applicable. Who Should Attend Some technical material will be covered, but the talk is targeted at both data scientists who create predictive models and the nontechnical stakeholders who are responsible for ultimately using them. About Dave DeCaprio Dave is the co-founder and CTO of ClosedLoop.ai - Healthcare's Data Science Platform. He has over 20 years of experience transitioning advanced technology from academic research labs into successful businesses. His experience includes genome research, pharmaceutical development, health insurance, computer vision, sports analytics, speech recognition, transportation logistics, operations research, real-time collaboration, robotics, and financial markets. Dave has been involved in several successful startups as well as consulting and advising both small and large organizations on how to innovate using technology with maximum impact. As part of the Human Genome Project, he was responsible for mapping all known biology onto the newly developed genome sequences. At Bluefin Labs, acquired by Twitter in 2014, he helped the founders recruit a team and go from concept to launch with the NFL in 13 weeks. At GNS Healthcare, he led the development of their first in the class causal machine learning platform. Dave graduated from MIT with a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and currently lives in Austin, TX.
