I have added the #dc-gma-local channel to the Julia slack workspace. I encourage y’all to join the channel.
The purpose of this group is to connect the Julia community in the Washington D.C. greater metro area as well as invite newcomers to join the community. We hope to promote the diversity in the Julia community especially of under-represented groups such as non-cis males and non-academics. Some of the planned activities include teaching Julia and coordinate projects for people to contribute. Depending on the expertise of the members some domain specific topics may be included such as data science and machine learning.
