We’ll tell you true – Philadelphia may have data science meetups. If you can’t bear the thought of crossing the state line, many tech aficionados in the Newark & Wilmington area belong to the following group:
Delaware Tech Meetup: Though it’s not devoted to data science per se, this Wilmington group is a place to talk about local tech initiatives, network with startup founders, and share ideas. It meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
We should also mention that for legal and financial reasons, tech startups often incorporate in Delaware. This doesn’t mean they’re physically based in Delaware; it just means that they’re favoring Delaware’s corporate laws and regulations.
