The Spring cohort of the District Data Labs Data Science Project Incubator is coming to a conclusion with Pitchfest this Friday evening. I'm inviting you to join us and check out the projects that the teams will be presenting!
For the last three months, five teams of DC data scientists have come together to turn theory into practice on projects that help ingest and visualize the news, show transportation resources around the DC region, search the US patent database, and more.
Learn from their experience deploying a news network graph as an interactive web app on Heroku, displaying traffic using Tableau, and analyzing prospective-presidential candidates ratings over time…among many others! Enjoy pizza on us as we are taken from concept to production on five data products, and then join the judges by voting for the winner!
