Real-world-data meetup 1

Following the warm responses we got to the real-world-data meetups suggestion, @jcpsantiago and I are organizing the first event on the series.

The goal is to create a space where individuals, companies, academic groups, and organizations will be able to share their experiences in using Clojure for data projects. Data analytics, machine learning, AI, data engineering, scientific computing, and data visualization are all welcome.

We want it to be a safe space, that would be comfortable for sharing successes, troubles, problems, hopes, and doubts. We want it to be useful not only for those who use mostly Clojure but also for those who are curious-but-doubtful.

Please share this with relevant friends.

Time

As we expect friends from many distant time zones, we will have two sessions:
Fri Feb. 25 13:00 UTC
Fri Feb. 25 16:00 UTC

Length

Each session will be 90 minutes long.

Agenda

  • a couple of experience-report presentations by participants
  • everybody sharing experiences, questions, ideas, etc.
  • discussion

Platform

  • We will use Zoom for the video call.
  • We will use the #real-world-data stream at the Clojurians Zulip chat.
  • The Zoom link will be shared at Zulip, as well as in the calendar event.

Recording

Some parts of the meeting will be recorded and shared publicly.
Some parts will be unrecorded.

Getting involved

You are encouraged to subscribe to the #real-world-data Zulip stream.

If you wish to present anything in the meeting, suggest ideas, or raise questions, that would be wonderful. It’d be good to know in advance if possible so that we can be clever about our use of time.


Other thoughts and comments would help as well. Please comment here at this post, or write to us in person. If you wish to get involved in facilitating the group, that is very much welcome too.
