Now that summer is in full swing, it's the perfect time to dive into a longer term project!

We'd like to challenge you to participate in the Summer of Data Science Twitter initiative started by Data Science Renee (https://twitter.com/BecomingDataSci). While the SoDS18 is open to all programming languages and endeavors related to becoming a (better) data scientist, we wanted to host a space within our Cville R-Ladies community to ask questions, provide support, and work together on group projects! Of course, there will also be snacks. :)

How do I participate?

We're going to kick off the book club by working through the first section of R for Data Science by Hadley Wickham and Garrett Grolemund (available for FREE at http://r4ds.had.co.nz/explore-intro.html). We'll start with Data Visualization with ggplot2, and we'll cover a ... read more at the event page.

Date: 2018-07-31 at 18:30
Location: Irvine, United States

Description Snippet:

This month we great talks from UCI's first set of graduates in the Master of Science, Business Analytics program. The talks are based on the analysis done by a team of graduate students during their five-month Capstone projects. As an interesting twice, one team did the analysis using python and the other used R. Both are great languages for analytical work.

Talk 1: Pacific Life's Deferred Annuity

Our most essential task in this project is to review the mortality experience from Pacific Life. In particular, we are looking into the mortality from Pacific Life's Deferred Annuity block of business. A Deferred Annuity is a retirement investment vehicle and functions like a mutual fund if managed efficiently. Pacific Life is internally required to use their current model to run periodic projections for the purposes of hedging, pricing and various other activities. Our goal is to identify and analyze the policy attributes that led to the disparity from the model and improve ... read more at the event page.

R and Python study group

Date: 2018-08-04 at 10:00
Location: West des Moines, United States

Description Snippet:

Are you tired of learning and playing with Python and R alone? Would you like to get together with a few friends and learn together? I have been starting to learn R and Python for data science and following the typical route of videos and practice projects. I really want to ramp up my learning and exposure to different ways. Here is my proposal:

- Gather a small group of 2-5 and learn together.
- Meet at a coffee shop, library, or some other space that has Wi-Fi.
- Pick a project, data set or problem, then work to solve it with different tools.
- Keep it fluid and informal.
- Meet on a regular basis, say weekly to start, and adjust as needed.
- Aim to keep the meetings 2-4 hours long, but this can be adjusted to the project or group. People can come and go as needed.
- It does not have to be the same people each time, so you only have to commit to going once to check it out.

Are you interested? Show up at the meeting spot, have some coffee, meet ... read more at the event page.
