I am looking to start a data science Meetup in El Paso. If you or your friends have interest in data analytics, big data, business intelligence, programming, digital marketing, etc. check out the Meetup group. The idea, hopefully, is to get both academic/UTEP affiliated people and local industry people to participate so that we can have a cross-pollination of ideas and help people meet others interested in the data world in which we all live. I have no idea how successful this group will be, or whether there are (m)any people interested in this topic in El Paso, so think of this as a trial run.
Types of events that I anticipate we’ll host:
- Networking events.
- Half day data jams/hackathons – post a dataset, have people form teams to create cool projects.
- Tutorial sessions
- Invited speakers
