Data Community DC (DC2) was formed in mid-2012 to connect and promote the work of data professionals in the National Capital Region. We foster education, opportunity, and professional development through high-quality, community-driven events, content, resources, products and services. Our goal is to create a truly open and welcoming community of people who produce, consume, analyze, and work with data -- data scientists, analysts, economists, programmers, researchers, and statisticians, regardless of industry, sector, or technology. As of December 2014, our events reach 6000+ members with many backgrounds, from many industries. Contact us at:


Services and Community

Our blog is a podium for local authors creating leading articles, tutorials, editorials, and reviews. DC2 additionally operates the Data Events DC calendar, a curated calendar of relevant Meetups, conferences, hackathons, and workshops in the region. LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter are other conduits to share information among the practitioners in our community.
