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.
We had the pleasure of hosting a Grand Opening event in Chicago a few weeks ago, ushering in our expansion to the Windy City. It was an evening of celebration, food, drinks, networking -- and of course, data science discussion!
Companies looking to hire data science talent can attend an upcoming Career Day in NYC or SF, where they'll meet all bootcamp graduates, watch final presentations, and network with potential employees.
Both New York City and San Francisco are treasure troves for data science Meetups during any given week. We try to attend as many as we can. Check out this list of events we're especially interested in this week.
Listen to Becoming a Data Scientist, a podcast featuring Metis Chief Data Scientist Debbie Berebichez. She discusses her childhood in Mexico City, where she was not encouraged to pursue her passions of math and physics, and was instead nudged towards topics considered more "feminine."
Bootcamp graduate Alison Cossette came to Metis with 10 years of healthcare experience and a desire to integrate that with rigorous data science training. At the time of this Q&A, she was a Senior Analyst in Center for Healthcare Management at the University of Vermont Medical Center, working on data projects that directly impact patients' healthcare. She's since moved on to new, exciting roles in data science.
