*Hello Hacks/Hackers NYC!* I wanted to let you know about DataGotham http://datagotham.com : a celebration of New York City’s data community! This is an event run by Drew Conway, Hilary Mason, Mike Dewar and John Myles White that will bring together professionals from finance to fashion and from startups to the Fortune 500. This day-and-a-half event will consist of intense discussion, networking, and sharing of wisdom, and will take place Sept. 13–14 at NYU Stern. We also have four in depth tutorials running in parallel on the afternoon of Thursday, Sept. 13th, followed by cocktails and The Great Data Extravaganza Show at the Tribeca Rooftop that evening. Specifically, for the Machine Learning, Hacks/Hackers and Open Statistical Programming Meetup attendees, I’ve made a few special tickets available to ONLY the tutorials and the party in case you can’t make the whole thing: http://datagothamtutorials.eventbrite.com/
