Goodbye DataScience.LA, goodbye California!

Goodbye DataScience.LA, goodbye California!

I (Szilard) started organizing meetups more than a decade ago (the LA R Users Group est. 2009 was the very first data meetup in the Los Angeles area). A few years later, a couple of us (Amelia, Leigh, Eduardo and I, and also several contributors) started a few more meetup groups (e.g. Data Science) and this very website DataScience.LA. However, in recent years my DataScience.LA Leadership Teammates relocated and now it’s my turn, I’m the last one to leave California (I’m very excited to move to Texas!). While we are ceasing all activities in LA now and this is the last update/post on this website, we will keep the existing/old content accessible for a while. It was a great pleasure running these events/this site and getting to know so many of you. LA has so many great data science folks! However, now it’s time to say goodbye, goodbye LA and California, and good luck to you all.

    I attended several meetups you organized. It was a great benefit to us out in sysadmin-land, getting a different perspective on our pesky and uninformed users. I hope Texas is good for you. Thank you – Kel

    Thanks Szilard. This was always the best of the local datascience meetup, well-worth the 4 hour round trips needed for me to make them.

    Hi Szilard, sad to see you leave! Would you be interested in having someone (or a team of folks) continue your legacy and keep DataScience.LA running after you leave?
