Next Meetup

Meet-up #1 for 2018 ***UPDATED***
Speakers/Topics/Agenda Updates Below... We make the long awaited return to Tysons Biergarten. The expanded Full Stack Data Science Steering Committee (Tom, Alex, Stave and Craig) is pleased to share with you that we have two great speakers and topics lined up for our meet-up on the 20th. Following some opening remarks by your truly and an introduction of the steering committee, Michael Sorah, CTO of Rosoka Software will address the topic of uNLP Desktop to Big Data. At one end of the spectrum you have an end user working with their private collection of documents and interacting directly with the extraction (i.e. I2plugin), At the other end you have a shared processing enterprise resource where users search through metadata to find information from an enterprise data store. The metadata enrichment in both ends of the spectrum starts with information from within the four corners of the document, and then correlated with other sources, and/or documents, and then used for analysis. We will show how we have built and used a micro-service and applied it in practice at to cover the desktop to enterprise big data spectrum. Next, we have John Ladley, Chief Delivery Officer at First San Francisco Partners and he is also a business technology thought leader and recognized authority in all aspects of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) with 35 years’ experience in planning, project management, improving IT organizations and successful implementation of information systems. His talk titled Data Driven, Data Governed, Data Scienced – Tragic Triangle or Triple Benefits? will present the basic concepts of how data science and data governance are required for organizations to become data driven. We are very thankful that Michael and John have agreed to join us for the evening. Both speakers will answer questions and address comments. I am hoping to convince ATA’s CTO, John Eberhardt to join us and provide some closing remarks (TBD).

What we're about

Public Group

Full Stack Data Science is the capability for the data-driven future we all know is coming. We also know that the world needs more data scientists and full stack developers. While we wait for more to hatch, we need to make more of our own because it is good for all of us to do so. The Full Stack Data Science Meet-up is oriented towards promoting a “full stack” approach to data science bringing much needed integration to the data science conversation across multiple disciplines ("defragging" data science, so to speak). How do you scale data science capabilities to serve the enterprise? Topics of discussion are centered on tough (and surprisingly common) challenges around data management; collection and ingestion; data architecture; exploratory, advanced, and secondary analytics; knowledge presentation and visualization; access and security, and measurement and assessment. Full Stack Data Science is meeting the data explosion head on and hungry to identify new relationships and opportunities in our data. In the end, the goal of Full Stack Data Science is help organizations, and the people in them, build a sustainable capability to improve performance, optimize investments, manage risk, and gain competitive advantage.
