Today, GoDataDriven announced the start of a local Data Council Meetup. By combining several Meetup groups into one overarching group for all data specialists, this group instantly is the largest of all global Data Council Meetup groups.
Data Council is a community-powered data platforms, engineering, science, and analytics event for software engineers, machine learning experts, deep learning researchers & artificial intelligence buffs who want to discover tools and insights to build new products. Data Council organizes four conferences and currently has local meetup groups in twelve cities across the globe, including Barcelona, Boston, New York, Kuala Lumpur, London, Singapore, San Francisco, and Zürich.
One Platform for All Data Practitioners
“The Data Science field is changing. While the market matures, many specific tools and technologies become mainstream while others are introduced to solve really specific issues. By combining our existing Meetup groups into one, we provide a single platform for data practitioners to learn about machine learning, data platforms, artificial intelligence and everything else necessary to develop valuable data applications and solutions, backed by the various Data Council initiatives around the world”, explained Niels Zeilemaker, CTO at GoDataDriven.
Deeply technical professionals (software engineers, data scientists, CTOs, etc.) are lifelong learners, and they acquire information in any way possible. It’s easy to understand how access to digital content has been game changing when it comes to coding education and continuing skill development. But, there is another key way knowledge is shared that might seem both obvious yet under-appreciated at the same time: receiving information orally and in-person from trusted colleagues, mentors, and friends.
“Data Council is all about helping spark innovation in data. During the past few years, we have learned that industry teams have a lot to gain from working with startups, academia & research organizations, and vice versa. With their wide range of community efforts, GoDataDriven has demonstrated this same ambition. That’s why we are excited to announce this partnership for the local Netherlands chapter of Data Council”, said Pete Soderling, founder of Data Council.
Largest Global Data Council Meetup Group
In the coming period, GoDataDriven will merge several of its groups, including the Amsterdam Apache Spark Meetup, Amsterdam Data Engineering Meetup, Amsterdam Airflow Meetup and the Netherlands Hadoop User Group, which combinedly create a group of over 1,500 members, making it by far the largest Data Council meetup to date.
