Data + Donuts
Data + Donuts is a learning and discussion group that offers a welcoming space to engage critically with issues of data and society. Every few weeks during the academic year, we invite researchers and practitioners to facilitate conversations around their area of expertise. Find our full list of past speakers on our website. Video recordings and slides are available upon request.
Programming + Pizza
Programming + Pizza is an open, free-form space for those interested in programming tools and computational research to build skills and community. Folks of all experience levels are welcome to bring their data-centric questions, insights, and projects to these semi-monthly events, to learn from and collaborate with one another (and eat free pizza, of course).
Some P+P sessions feature a presentation from a person or team working on an interesting coding project. Find a full list of past presenters on our website.
