Datageeks: Quantified


Since we started our meetups in 2013 we have seen an impressive growth of our community. Although we already count more than 2000 members on our meetup-page, we welcome three new members every day, on average.

With the foundation of the club in 2015, we now aim at pushing the numbers even further, making Munich the #1 Data Science Location in Europe.
