Boston Data Festival

September 18, 2015 @ 12:00 am - September 23, 2015 @ 12:00 am

The third annual Boston Data Festival’s primary goal is to bring together the data-centric community for an energetic week of events to learn, collaborate, and network. Specific goals are to:

  • Showcase greater Boston as a data-centric region of talented individuals and innovative companies.
  • Highlight the diversity of people, start-ups, and companies dedicated to this domain, as well as the quality of resources available.
  • Help community members achieve their goals, be it to fast-track a data scientist career path or create a big data startup.
  • Reach out to individuals who are unaware of, or daunted by, the myriad of new techniques and technology presented at the data-centric Meetup scene.
