Business Analytics Student Club

There is an article on the new business analytics student club which you might want to join if you are interested in Big Data Analytics:
For nearly every type of organization today, business analytics is used to turn raw company data into powerful insights that drive decision-making. However, this process can be a challenging task as analysts need to have the skills to collect and store massive datasets, clean and analyze data, translate results into meaningful decisions that make a positive impact, and, most importantly, effectively communicate their analysis to leadership. “The club’s mission is to foster an interactive learning environment that will help its members develop excellent data-driven decision-making skills,” says founding Business Analytics Club President Olga Pak. “We feel there is a massive talent gap in big-data analytics. That is why the club’s purpose is to help USC students—regardless of their university major—fill this gap. Having the right data and analytics skills will open the doors for many more opportunities for University of South Carolina graduates.”

USC Students Create Google CS First and Help Columbia and SC

There is an article in USC news about USC students creating the Google CS first curriculum and bringing it to Columbia.
“If you know how to code, you can get a job,” Hoffman says. “So this could really help to end the poverty cycle for some of the kids in our club. To know that I might be giving them an opportunity that I didn’t have at the same age is rewarding. “At the very least, we’re showing them that the stereotype of computer science as being really hard or really boring isn’t true.” CS First clubs could also be a boon to children in rural areas like Manning, S.C., where Goodman grew up.
Remember, you can volunteer to help Google CS first in Columbia or anywhere.

Programming Project on Social Networking Startup

I am the GIS manager for the Air National Guard and recently started an internship with USC's Geography Department. I also own a small llc, and have been working with a team of programs from VCU in Virginia on a social networking site, MappTrek, for the last 9 months. Due to time constraints, the programmers were unable to finish the site. However I do have all the code, and we have a pro skateboarder ready to endorse the site, 400k followers. We are reaching out to local programmers for help in bringing this idea to fruition. I though I would try and reach out to the college to see if they could provide any support. Thank you very much Travis travisthompsongis@gmail.com
