Steph Locke


Workshop: Data Science 101

Data scientists know the “magic” of making accurate predictions over time.

However, magic is just sufficiently advanced technology, and most of a data scientist’s magic is a good process, good data awareness, and the ability to know whether to make something new or use something that’s already out there. In short – it’s not all that different from software development, or any other technical field.

Let’s go behind the curtains and see the process and the fundamentals employed in making any prediction. Get comfortable with the basics of data science, and learn enough to start adding magic to your work.
