Because it’s time to hang!
This week the world celebrates Valentine's Day. The holiday has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, which marked the coming of spring with fertility rites and beer. On Februray 14th, 1859, Oregon became the 33rd state in the union, also commemorated with beer.
So, join us on Wednesday evening to celebrate in the fashion of our ancestors and have a beer (or other beverage of your choice)! We will meet at Produce Row Cafe (204 SE Oak St) which has Happy Hour pricing through 7 pm. Early birds will stake out a table on the covered (and heated) back porch by ~ 5:30.
Perhaps this free, fun, and rigorous data science analytics MOOC will be of interest to some of you:
Use location to find patterns and tackle complex problems.
Spatial data science allows analysts to extract deeper insight from data using a comprehensive set of analytical methods and spatial algorithms, including machine learning and deep learning techniques. This course explores the application of spatial data science to uncover hidden patterns and improve predictive modeling. You'll work with powerful analytical tools in Esri's ArcGIS software and learn how to integrate popular open data science packages into your analyses.
