We've got two cool talks for our April meetup tonight!
Chris Lindner, a data scientist at Civitas Learning, will be giving a talk about how they use data science with university data to drive students to success. In his talk, he'll discuss the data science team's use of Python for accessing SQL databases, doing all things DS with Pandas and scikit-learn, visualization with Bokeh, and if there's time he will demo an app built with Flask.
After that, Aaron Meurer will give a short talk about the latest crazy little project from David Beazley, called "Metal": https://github.com/dabeaz/me-al, which uses umlauts to dynamically decorate functions.
Tonight's meetup food & drink is being sponsored by Civitas Learning, which brings together the best of new technology, design thinking, and data science in its mission to help over 2.3 million college students learn well and finish strong. Their cloud-based, predictive analytics platform provides deep insights to decision makers at over 733 partner campuses, and they deliver personalized, real-time recommendations directly to students, faculty, and advisors. Chris, Kaitlyn, and others from Civitas will be at our meetup tonight if you are interested in speaking with them about their company and their open positions.
As always, we are also very grateful to the Capital Factory for providing us space, and also for providing the reduced parking rates for those parking in the Omni garage after 6pm.
See you tonight!
