Introducing The Hacker Within – Davis, First meetup is 1/14

From Jason Moore:

I’d like to invite you to the first meetup of the new Hacker Within Davis Chapter [1]. The monthly meetup’s purpose is to build community around scientific computing and data technologies. The meeting is structured as a tutorial or discussion, followed by lightning talks, and a collaborative programming session. It is modeled after the successful chapters at University of Wisconsin-Madison and UC Berkeley.

The first tutorial topic will be "Web Scraping" given by Duncan Temple Lang. See this page for more information on preparing for the tutorial and information about the speaker:

It will be held in the Data Science Initiative Room in Shields Library (Room 360, Third Floor) on Thursday January 14th at 5:10pm.

During this first meeting we will also spend some time getting to know each other and planning the goals and future topics of the group.

Everyone with interest in the group and its future is welcome to attend.

If you’d like to give a lightning talk at the first meetup, let me know or submit a pull request to the website repository [2].

Spread widely!
