Following up on the semi-annual community data science
UW: would there be interest in having our user group support periodic
one-day events for people to gather for workshops to teach data
science skills, teach Wikimedia skills, and present data science
and/or open source projects? I am thinking that this might be fun,
and would nicely interface with existing groups and interests at UW
and in the Seattle area. These might be one-day workshops that we
hold quarterly. If there is interest, we could add this to our
projects that we're considering supporting in our annual plan.
What do others think?
I was thinking of doing something like this at FreeGeek Seattle.
These days, that means probably hosting the training at SODO
Makerspace in Seattle.
I was probably going to scope it to a simpler intro to Python course,
but if others were around to help, we could be more ambitious.
A few of us are trying to get FreeGeek Seattle to be a source of
recurring training in this area, in addition to refurbishing
hardware for the needy.
