Join us for the second Penn Data Scientists Meetup! This event aims to bring together practitioners of data science, engineering, and visualization from across the University. There are many staff members across Penn who work in isolated clusters on these topics, and we are looking to foster collaboration between Penn’s various schools.

Please share this announcement with staff members who are involved in data science-adjacent activities, particularly those in roles such as Research Software Engineer, Systems Architect, or Data Scientist.
