Enthought is proud to announce its sponsorship of the upcoming DataGotham conference in NYC. DataGotham is meant to be a “celebration of New York City’s data community.” Organized by the likes of Drew Conway and Hillary Mason (and other pillars of the community), DataGotham is shaping up to be a highly concentrated concoction of everything data science-y. Just take a look at the ever increasing line-up of speakers. Even for those of you who don’t live or work in Manhattan, it’s probably worth the trip!
At Enthought, we use Python because it offers an effective combination pragmatism, clarity, and power. We have always argued that good tools “get out of the way,” allowing you to focus on the real problem at hand. As such, we are excited to support DataGotham’s effort to highlight how the NYC scientific community is tackling a wide variety of questions in urban planning, social media, education, etc.
Don’t forget to check out the tutorials! There will be tutorials on Data Journalism, MongoDB/R, Julia (recently featured at Scipy), and Real Time Data Science.
