Gopher Day of Data 2017

December 2, 2016
Gopher Day of Data

Can’t get enough data? Do you love data visualization? Are you a statistics geek? Or maybe you're new to data analysis and want to build your skills?  Come and join us for Gopher Day of Data 2017!  You can spend an entire day with a dataset of your choice, share your data enthusiasm, and learn new data skills.

This is an opportunity to explore how we can make use of tools and technologies like R, RShiny, Python, D3.js, Tableau, SPSS, JMP, Stata, SAS, Spark, SQL, Hadoop, MongoDB, Excel or that new tool/technology/statistical model you know about that no one else does. We’ll have some data ready for analysis—or bring your own.

Have some data you're willing to share? Maybe you've scraped, collected, or maintain a dataset that you're excited to dig into? Propose your dataset as a project idea below! Just click in the box to "Submit your idea..." and give a brief description of the data, along with a few questions you think might be interesting to tackle during the event. (Please only propose datasets that can be shared publicly. Contact the event organizers if you have questions about whether your dataset is eligible.)

This event is free and open to University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff. All experience levels are welcome! Pizza lunch and snacks will be provided. Spots are limited, so register now!
