Video Series – Demystifying Data Science: A Data Science How-To Guide

By Emily Wilson • April 23, 2018

Back in September, we hosted a free live online conference featuring 12 straight hours of data science talks from more than 25 of the industry's best and brightest speakers. Demystifying Data Science was an awesome day of insights, advice, information, and interaction for aspiring data scientists. To share it all, we've broken the collection of recordings into a six-part blog series, of which this is the fourth. (Check out one, two, and three.)

This post will act as a Data Science How-To Guide, with talks covering how to approach learning data science and deep learning, why knowing how things work actually matters, and how to use A/B testing on the job. Enjoy!
