Hi ChiPy Members,

It was an absolute pleasure to host the last MeetUp, and thank you all for
attending.  The speaker, Adam McElhinney, sincerely appreciated the
audience turnout and the discussion.

As I shared in the MeetUp, on July 11 and 12 (this weekend), we are
conducting the Predictive Analytics class using Python.  It will be held at
the same location, TechNexus
N. Upper Wacker Drive).  The class is $750, and below this email you will
find the curriculum.  If you cannot make it this weekend, and you would
prefer a different weekend, please let me know that as well.  You can email
me at Nusreth.Baig at gmail.com
<javascript:_e(%7B%7D,'cvml','Nusreth.Baig at gmail.com');> or
Nusreth at BigShouldersDataCamp.com.  Feel free to call me at 847-867-4349
with any questions you have.

Please forward this info to anyone you think may be interested.

Thank you,
