Data Science After Dark Kickoff Meeting
August 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm CDT
Come help us kickoff a meet-up community that’s sure to light up the night in Springfield Missouri!
Data Science After Dark’s inaugural meeting will kick off with free food, drink, networking, collaborative community design, and a presentation – a fun example showing how small amounts of code can be used to analyze large volumes of text to challenge common wisdom and answer illusive questions.
We’ll be meeting in the BKD room at The eFactory (405 N. Jefferson Ave.) on August 20th from 5:30p to 7:00p. Food and drink will be provided while everyone settles in. We’ll begin with a guided ideation exercise to rapidly collect community strengths, needs and interests. This is your opportunity to shape this community, and through our our collective learning, we hope, the future of data science in Springfield! The meeting will conclude with a fun example of exploratory data analysis presented by Chad Boschert of Apt Crowd, LLC.
