Video Series – Demystifying Data Science: Journeys, Stories, and Community

By Emily Wilson • May 01, 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 recorded talks into a six-part blog series, of which this is the fifth. (Check out onetwothree, and four.)

This particular post explores data science journeys, stories, and community. Hear how a math major made his way to becoming a data scientist and how harnessing the power of community can push your data science career forward. Then listen in on a talk about going after your data science dreams and enjoy a dose of creativity as one data scientist performs original, data-specific lyrics set to the tune of an 80's chart-topper.
