PyData-Atlanta is interested in telling insightful stories about data and exploring the methods behind those stories. We advocate for open data ecosystems and workflows that center on open source tools, especially (but not exclusively) based in Python. We are focused on the vertical integration of tools and skills that transform raw data into insights, and we aim to provide a seminar-like learning environment. We host short interactive presentations, audience-contributed lightning talks (please sign up here (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeSNEeUWP77Jr8fm7NhOQxu2DPJG1r3kPGmGHX0kDyNJsLKig/viewform)), panel discussions, and informal networking opportunities. Our events can benefit both experienced and beginner data scientists alike.

Code for Atlanta
We invite technologists of all stripes -- coders, designers, data scientists, product managers, and more -- to join our all-volunteer efforts to make Atlanta a better place. Anyone can lead a civic-minded, social good project. We welcome partnerships with local non-profits and government agencies on projects that serve the public and engage with all of metro Atlanta's communities.
IxDA Atlanta is the local chapter of the Interaction Design Association. Since 2009, we've put on design slams, socials, film screenings, UX show & tells, and hosted local and national speakers from the professional and academic communities. If you're into user experience, design, technology, strategy, or just want to learn more, we invite you to join the conversation.
Art in Tech Atlanta
Simply, our meetup aims to fuse the world of art and the world of tech.
This comes in a variety of forms that leverages all aspects of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and creates novel connections between them. If you find yourself in any of these fields craving collaboration with like-minded (or other brained) people, this meetup is for you.
Art made with code, architecture created from musical notation, paintings by robot dogs, all this and much more can be expected to be talked about and worked on at our meetups. Because Atlanta is rapidly growing in both tech startups and artistic ventures (music and film being the most acknowledged), we are in a unique place as a city to position ourselves to be some of the most innovative in the realm of "FutureArt". We'll try to keep a healthy mix of discussion/sharing and workshop styled meetups, as we know this is a new field for most, and we can all benefit from each others varied experiences.
