For our first meetup of 2019 we will be hosting Celina Lee from Zindi!

Zindi is the first data science competition platform in Africa. Zindi hosts an entire data science ecosystem of scientists, engineers, academics, companies, NGOs, governments and institutions focused on solving Africa’s most pressing problems.

Find out more here: https://zindi.africa/

Celina will tell us a bit more about Zindi, how to get involved and use the platform, then we'll get stuck into looking at one of the challenges together, using real world data to learn, collaborate, discuss, grow our skills, and at the same time, help solve one of Africa's most pressing problems!

If you have your own laptop, please bring with to the meetup.
