First KNIME Users Meetup in Poland

- Za Bramką 1, 61-842 Poznań, Poland

This is our first official KNIME Meetup in Poland! We will be demonstrating the main capabilities of KNIME Analytics Platform, a leading open solution that is free to use, open source, fast to deploy, easy to scale, and intuitive to learn. We will show you how to easily discover the potential hidden in your data, mine for fresh insights, or predict new futures.

At this very first meetup in Poland, we invite you to make your first steps, find out more about text mining with KNIME Analytics Platform and R-integration with KNIME!

After the talks, there is time for networking over drinks, snacks & pizza :)

We would like to thank Krzystof Żarna for organizing this meetup!

Marten Pfannenschmidt, Data Scientist (KNIME)

I recently finished my studies at Freie Universität Berlin and have started working as a Data Scientist for KNIME in the Berlin office. Since I became a big fan of R during my studies and especially while working on my master thesis, I like to attend the meetups of R-users in Berlin as often as I can. That is why the topic of my talk is going to be about how to use R-integration in KNIME and why you might want to do it.
