Data Science Hackday
March 28 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
We’re delighted to announce our next Data Science Hackday on Saturday 28th March 10 AM – 5 PM which will be taking place at the WeWork offices in Canary Wharf (30 Churchill Place E14 5EU).
Big thanks to everyone at WeWork for hosting us!
As always, this will be an attendee-driven day of hands-on coding on any data science topic you’re interested in so please remember to bring your laptop (having a working Python or R installation ready to go is a good start!) and come ready with ideas for topics to work on.
If you’re looking for inspiration, check out current Kaggle competitions at https://www.kaggle.com/competitions, datasets at https://www.kaggle.com/datasets and intro-level tutorials at https://www.kaggle.com/c/titanic.
Please don’t feel restricted by the sources mentioned here as we welcome all topics related to data science!
The structure of the day will be as follows:
• 10:00 AM – Arrive, discuss topics, form groups
• 10:30 AM – Work on selected topics
• Lunch: We’re looking for sponsors but attendees might have to bring their own. Please get in touch if you know a company who could sponsor!
• 4:45 PM – Lightning talks for anyone who’s interested
• 5:00 PM – Clean up
• 5:15 PM – Drinks at a nearby pub
Please be aware that, for security reasons, you will need to RSVP with your full name.
Please also register on our Slack channel http://datascienceworkshop.slack.com/ (auto-enrolment: https://launchpass.com/datascienceworkshop) so you have a convenient way to share your work with others.
Hope to see you all there!
