Data Week DC is Near! (Oct 1-5)

In 2017 when we founded DC DATACON to bring the data practitioners of our region together for the "Big Conversation" around data science, and to complement our vibrant meet-up culture that is Data Community DC (DC2). One of our goals was to highlight the strength and opportunity that is our data science ecosystem in the DMV. After two successful years, we have learned a ton and are excited to be embarking on the evolution of this concept. Simply stated, DC DATACON is now Data Week DC.

Data Week DC will take place October 1-5, 2019 at venues all over our region. During this time, our data community (meetups, higher-ed, non-profits and corporations) will produce events addressing data science topics of interest to the communities that they serve. Think of it as a crowd-sourced 5-day conference led by our data community in the spirit of SXSW. We are learning as we go, but early indicators are incredibly positive and the coalition is growing quickly. We look forward to seeing you at our events this week!
