Weekly Roundup: Data Science Meetups (NYC & SF)
By Emily Wilson • August 08, 2016
During any given week, both New York City and San Francisco are treasure troves for data science Meetups. If we're not hosting our own, we try to make it out to others' events, to talk about, think about, and practice data science. Here is a list of events we're especially interested in this week:
Glassdoor recently named Data Scientist the top job of 2016. "They're in high demand but require such a high quantity of specialized knowledge that good ones are a rare breed," Tech.Co wrote in an article about the report .
During the Metis bootcamp, we place a strong focus on community. In this piece, San Francisco Program Manager Stephany Bittar writes about how that foundation is built and how it grows through daily collaboration, outings in downtown SF, ping pong tournaments, and much more.
Last week, we hosted our first-ever Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session with Metis Bootcamp alum Bryan Bumgardner at the helm. For one full hour, Bryan answered any question that came his way via the Reddit platform.
