It has been amazing to see BIDS coming to life over these last few months here at Berkeley, and we are thrilled to finally have a digital home in this website to share all of the exciting things going on. People are at the heart of BIDS, and you will find our fellows and staff integrated into many areas of the site for this reason. We already have a fantastic community of researchers who are involved in working groups and projects, who use different software and tools, and who are even available to meet for office hours.
We are eager to see our community continue to grow and look forward to working with researchers from all disciplines. I encourage you to get involved by helping us facilitate and nurture data-intensive science across campus, by participating in one of our many events, or by joining us to become an active BIDS member, fellow, or visiting scholar.
We’re just getting started and have many more activities and opportunities in store for the coming months. Keep in touch by following this website, following us on Twitter (@UCBIDS), or joining our mailing list to receive announcements.
