I made a wiki page for the event:

https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Neural_Network_Workshop

Anyone who wants to help out - it would be much appreciated!
Just let me know. I'm going to work on coming up with datasets
over the next two weeks and it'd be great if someone wanted to
volunteer finding R packages to simulate neural nets. Any help
at all would be awesome.

Thanks,

  mike
