It's both what you know and who you know....

 Good morning everyone and a very warm welcome to the new members. I would like this to be a group where we share ideas on skill improvement, and learning opportunities within the Data Science community and learning from each other. Here’s a round-up of webinar events and meet-ups for Data Scientists. Business Analytics Institute has no affiliation with these organisations. I just thought they would be good opportunities to improve skills and keep up to date with the industry. Feel free to share with anyone you know who would be interested in these webinars.

In these series, I will share Data Science events from around Europe, webinars, conferences. These are opportunities to meet other data science professionals. Today I have meet ups that meet regularly for coffee, chat, presentations, networking covering various big data based in London. Next week I'll have some more from cities around Europe. 

I also have a webinar on hands on data analysis using Python by CambridgeSpark. I feel webinars are flexible because you can attend them from anywhere as along as you have access to the internet (and the time zone is not too crazy). Again, there is no affiliation to Business Analytics Institute, but I think this a good learning opportunity for those interested in hands-on experience in processing data and it's FREE. I will try as much as I can to post free webinars but some organisations do ask for fee. If you attend any of these, please come back and share you experience with the group!
