The next Ignite NYC takes place in conjunction with the O'Reilly Strata Conference on Monday, October 22nd at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers in the Metropolitan Ballroom. Our theme reflects the conference's focus on data science and vizualization, with an emphasis on the wonder and mysteries that data science is stumbling into.
5 minutes and 20 slides rotating automatically in front of NYC’s brightest geeks, what would you say? Ignite NYC has cultivated a vibrant community of artists, technologists, thinkers, tinkerers, and personalities to connect, develop new relationships and projects, and answer this challenge. Enlighten us, but make it quick!!
