North East Data Scientists Meetup

If you’re based in the North East of England and you’re looking for a place to discuss all things R with like-minded people, then you might want to check out the North East Data Scientist (NEDS) Meetups!

Hosted every two months in the amazing Catalyst building in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, the NEDS meetups are an excellent opportunity to network with like-minded data science enthusiasts and professionals. We hold two talks at each session presented by data science experts from across the North East, and we have have recently started running pre-event workshops delivered by our very own JR trainers!

The best thing is, the event is completely free, with costs covered by our generous sponsors, listed at the end of this post!

Whether you want to start from scratch, or improve your skills, Jumping Rivers has a training course for you.

Our next NEDS Meetup: July 14th 2022

The next NEDS meetup is coming up soon! This time, we will be having some exciting talks from Jumping Rivers’ Myles Mitchell, who will be talking about JR’s new tool, Diffify, and Penny Pegman, a Lead Data Scientist at the Department for Work and Pensions!

We will also have Jack Walton, one of JR’s Data Scientists and Trainers delivering a hands on, interactive demonstration of plotting with matplotlib in Python, with the pre-event workshop, Plotting in Python: The Basics.
