Data Science with Julia - Data, Statistics and Plots

Apr 16, 2018 · Greater London, United Kingdom

Following on from our "Intro to Julia" workshop, we're pleased to announce the next user group event: a "Data Science with Julia" workshop that introduces you to the tools and techniques for using data, statistics and plotting within Julia. While the first workshop gave you general flavour of the language, this one will teach you to be a proficient data scientist using Julia.

This session will be presented by Malcom Sherrington and Josh Day. Most of you know Malcolm as a long time Julia enthusiast, author, and organiser of this meetup. Josh is a statistician and data scientist, and a PhD from NC State. He is the creator of OnlineStats.jl, and will join us via Skype for this event. Topics covered in this session will include

* Working with data - DataFrames and RDataSets
* Statistical Tools - Clustering and Regression algorithms
* Plotting Data - Plots.jl, GR
* JuliaDB - Distributed columnar data store built for analytics
* OnlineStats - Algorithms for streaming data, and data too big to fit in memory

Schedule:
6:30pm Registration, Pizza and Networking
7:00pm Malcolm Sherrington - Data, Statistics and Plots
8:00pm Josh Day - JuliaDB and OnlineStats

We have also tentatively scheduled a further series of events in the subsequent months, please mark your calendars
May 8: Deep Learning deep dive
June 4: Parallel Computing and performance improvements

Finally, I would like to mention that tickets for JuliaCon2018 are now on sale. Significant discounts are available for early bird tickets till June 15th. See the website for more: http://juliacon.org/2018/tickets.html

    Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library. Want to show what you are working on? Questions to ask? Want to meet others who are using Julia? Let's meetup and talk Julia!
