As data science grows in importance, it encounters the IT department with increasing frequency. Observing these encounters is like watching two vastly different galaxies collide. There are many loud explosions, furious disagreements, blinding thunderbolt flashes and a lot of misunderstanding. Yogi Schulz will address the chasm between data science and information systems for these topics: 1. Project kickoff 2. Requirements 3. Design 4. Software development methodology 5. Data requirements 6. Software development 7. Success criteria 8. Operational methodology 9. Deployment 10. Project elapsed time For each chasm topic, he will describe an approach to narrowing and perhaps eliminating the chasm. Biography: Yogi Schulz founded Corvelle Consulting.

Join us for the Closing Ceremony for the Untapped Energy's 2019 reCLIAM data competition: Alberta's Aging Oil and Gas Infrastructure. Alberta's Oil and Gas industry has collectively amassed ~90,000 inactive wells. While a subset have future potential and are subject to reactivation, the majority are candidates for abandonment. Since October 15, data ninjas have worked tirelessly to solve 2 machine learning challenges. They are then using data interrogation, model interpretation, model improvements and risk scoring to come up with new insights and innovative approaches in solving this province's Aging Infrastructure challenge. This event will celebrate all the efforts shown during the competition and a winner will be announced. This Closing Ceremony will take place at the Calgary Central Library (800 3 Street SE, Calgary, AB) as part of Google Developer Group Calgary's DevFest - more details at: https://devfestyyc.com/ Register through this Meetup page to reserve your spot!
