Note: below is what we will return to once the pandemic is <BOLD>over</BOLD>. Until then, we are <BOLD>online only</BOLD>.
Not a tutorial session and will be not be led by anyone. We have consistently seen better results when people self-organize around common interests or skill levels. Guided materials are provided in Slack ask anyone to be added.

- Know python or start learning it
- Register for kaggle, unless you are more advanced and are networking
- Skim forums and code in the first project that people use to get acquainted https://www.kaggle.com/c/titanic

More Settled In:

- Already professionally established and learning something new
Some people will come and go, as they just want to see what all this "ai" buzz is about. There are also a handful of usual suspects, who are studying and working side projects - come and say "hi"!
