As a part of Forward Fest ($), I am organizing a session in the Madison Meetups track on "dynamic documents" along with Scott Sievert (@stsievert) and Tristan Mahr (@tjmahr). Scott will be talking about jupyter notebooks, and TJ will talk about Rmarkdown documents. I think I'll be talking about pandoc and introducing dynamic documents more generally. We only have 45 minutes so it will be a bit of a blitz, and should be fun.
There are of course other Meetups that are organizing sessions for our track, including Internet of Things - Madison, Ionic Madison, Madhackers, Madison Women in Tech, and MASD (Madison Area Software Developers). Here's the schedule for the day.
10:15-11 AM Lady Lightning
11-11:45 AM Ionic - From Madison with Love
12:45-1:30 PM The Modern Stack
1:30-2:15 PM Hacking and the value of open source software
3-3:45 PM Dynamic documents for reproducible research
3:45-4:30 PM Internet of Things and Milwaukee Tools
