We are glad to announce the launch of DataScience.Vegas as a blog that aggregates all the events, news and information impacting the Las Vegas data science community. Our community has witnessed the birth and steady growth of several data science meetup groups with a very enthusiastic group of devoted members. We are a community of data scientists, data miners, statisticians, data analysts, data engineers, data visualizers, data journalists, academics, researchers, BI analysts and in general people directly involved in data projects.
This blog is intended to act as a home for all the content (slides, code, videos) for several data science meetups in Las vegas including Data Science LV, R, DataVis, and Python-Data Science. We seek to engage data enthusiasts in the Las Vegas community in an open, active discussion about best practices and new developments in the field. We invite local authors to contribute thought-provoking and leading articles, tutorials, editorials, and reviews.
The blog is run by Data Science Las Vegas (DSLV), a non-profit professional group that brings together people interested in data science in the Las Vegas community. DSLV additionally operates the Vegas Data Events-calendar, a curated calendar of relevant meetups, conferences, hackathons, and workshops in Las Vegas.
DSLV is a volunteer-run, community-driven organization! You can contribute your time and talent as a speaker, blogger, event host or co-organizer. Please get involved and help us make our community even better! You can also always email our leadership team at [email protected] with suggestions and ideas.
