Announcing the new 'Data Analysis Tools Series': BIDS relaunches 'The Hacker Within'

August 24, 2018

The group formerly known as the Berkeley chapter of The Hacker Within has been renamed the Data Analysis Tools Series. The renaming is an attempt to provide clarity and inclusiveness to a wider audience, and to be less mysterious as to the group's purpose, which is to be "a collaborative, peer-driven weekly meeting for sharing skills and best practices in research computation and data science."

The first meeting of this new group will be held on Monday, August 27, at 4pm in 190 Doe Library. It is open to the public, and all interested participants are welcome and encouraged to attend. During the first meeting, a plan will be designed for the semester's meetings, based on what participants want to learn and teach.
