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.
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 The daily rush of working in an intense, structured environment and collaborating with an amazing group of peers has been replaced by the hard truth that you need to find a job.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.
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.
