Since free parking opens up at 6pm, I’ve made the official start time 6:30. I usually try to park exactly at 6 before spaces get gobbled up so feel free to show up early.

Hackathon and website efforts continue.

Hack Zika data exploration!

Special joint meeting of <c4tb/> and the Tampa Bay Data Science Group. This will be the first reveal of Mosquito Control data received so far from the county. Come and get a jump on the hackathon by reviewing what’s in the 25MB zip file we should have by COB Monday. It may not be BIG data but it sure is important to help the county government optimize their mosquito fighting efforts and help protect the population from mosquito born illnesses.

Bring your laptops so you can dig in!
