Building and Deploying Predictive Models - A full day Data Education and Networking Event coming to Portland October 18th

Join your fellow Lovers of Data for a full day of data education and networking provided by your local Portland DAMA Chapter. The DAMA Portland Chapter Board, in conjunction with our sponsors WhereScape, are proud to welcome back one of our most popular speakers, Dean Abbott of Abbott Analytics. Dean is one of Cognilytica's 50 Data Science Influencers to follow for 2018.

This training is all day in downtown Portland Oregon, with Breakfast and Lunch provided. Dean will present four progressive sessions covering the building and deployment of predictive models. The sessions will include demos, and Dean prefers a largely interactive format allowing plenty of time for Q&A both during the sessions and at the end of the day.

Sponsorship has allowed us to lower the price this year for this all day training to $49 for chapter members and employees of DAMA sponsor companies ($69 general public) . This is an amazing value for your training budget, especially if you are looking for exposure to data science and how to apply predictive modeling to your business use-cases.
