What we're about

We are the North East Databricks meetup!

We are an inclusive community, meeting 6 times a year, to discuss data science, analytics and engineering! Specifically, we discuss how this is done within Databricks, a big data platform aimed at doing fast, distributed computing!

Whether you are a Databricks enthusiast, totally new to it or want to learn more about data, our events are aimed at everyone! We will hear talks from experts in the data and Databricks community, and discuss the latest updates in the Databricks stack. We meet in the award-winning Catalyst building in Newcastle upon Tyne.
