Founded by Josh Reich and Drew Conway, the New York Open Statistical Programming Meetup started as the New York R Meetup with a handful of people in an office at Union Square Ventures. Since then it has grown to over 11,000 members and has been hosted at NYU, Columbia, AOL, iHeartRadio, eBay, Work-Bench and other locations.
Our mission is to spread knowledge of statistical programming techniques in open-source languages such as R, Python, Julia and Go, and data science in general. Another important aspect is community building and socializing. The meetups start with pizza, followed by a 45-90 minute talk, ending with a trip to the local bar.
