Weekly Roundup: Data Science Meetups (NYC & SF)
By Emily Wilson • August 19, 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, at which we can 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.
Now the bootcamp has ended. The daily rush of working in an intense, structured environment and collaborating with an amazing group of peers has been replaced by the hard truth that you need to find a job. No matter how incredible the career support is from your alma mater bootcamp, the onus is still on you to find that next role.
