Last week our coordinator, Allison K Herrera, attended the Open Data Science Conference 2017 (ODSC East) in Boston, MA.

This conference offers amazing, accelerated data science training in general and technical capacities.
2 resources that we’d like to highlight from this conference:


1. Measurement Lab Visualizations (M-Lab Viz)
M-Lab is a consortium dedicated to providing an open measurement platform for global network performance and hosts the largest open Internet performance data-set on the planet.
The visualizations are particularly interesting if you enjoy exploring data sets with interactive maps and location features.

2. Emoji Data Science! (PRISMOJI)
PRISMOJI is a data journalism lab that is dedicated to tell data-driven stories about politics, culture, and technology.
These articles highlight how Emoji data science has something for everyone, from Taylor Swift to Brexit!
