Women in Big Data’s Latina America Chapter Committee in collaboration with SAP, N1N3 Data Science, POX, Hammer and Eiffel held the first 2018 meetup on April 18 at Tecnopuc Campus, Porto Alegre Brazil. We had over 60 attendees – women and man!
For this pleasant night we had a technical speech led by Mine Caxeiro , which was really interactive and to the point, covering today’s trends and providing insight about big data, data science and correlated subjects. Additionally, we had Luciana Schroeder addressing soft skill speech focused on the power of body language.
Our main purpose was to organize sessions that can mix both technical and soft skills. I believe we delivered great content, both due to a very participatory audience and our speakers!
A little info on the details of event planning and execution: The goal of our team of seven was to organize a small scale event and yet have a wide outreach. The team consisted of Fabricia Doria, IT Specialist at Getnet/Santander (Networking Committee Role Latin America Chapter), Indiara Palavro, Hp Software Development Manager (Networking Committee Role Latin America Chapter), Luciana Schroeder, CEO/Founder at Lectus Systems and Science of People Certified Professional (Mentoring Committee Role Latin America Chapter). Mael Prauchner, Project Manager and Scrum Master at Getnet/Santander (Director Committee Role Latin America Chapter), Marcia Macedo, Scrum Master at Getnet/Santander (Networking Committee Role Latin America Chapter), Mine Caxeiro, CEO/ Founder at N1N3 Data Science (Evangelism and Awareness Committee Role Latin America Chapter) and Naiane Diniz, CEO/Founder at Eiffel Events (Networking Committee Role Latin America Chapter).
It was very rewarding to get so many people interested in big data field, we hope to have everyone back in the next event and get new attendees too!
