Data Science for Software Engineers

Agenda:
6-630pm : food, socializing
630pm - 8pm : talk

Data Science for Software engineers:
Data Science is all the rage right now.  Most of us perceive data scientists as PhDs with deep math knowledge and excellent domain (retail, banking ..etc) knowledge.  Can a software engineer pivot his career as a data scientist?What does it take?

In this talk 0xdata founder & CEO SriSatish Ambati  will talk about this new phenomenon.   And offer some tips for software engineers wanting to learn data science.


Insight Data Engineering Fellows Program
Jake Klamka, Founder of Insight, will present a short 10 minute presentation about transitioning to a career in big data via his Data Engineering Fellows Program.

About the speaker:
SriSatish Ambati is co-founder and ceo of 0xdata (@hexadata), the builders of H2O.  H2O democratizes bigdata science and makes hadoop do math for better predictions. Before 0xdata, Sri spent time scaling R over bigdata with researchers at Purdue and Stanford. Prior to that Sri co-founded Platfora and was the Director of Engineering at DataStax. Before that Sri was Partner & Performance engineer at java multi-core startup, Azul Systems, tinkering with the entire ecosystem of enterprise apps at scale.

    A good location and the presenters/staff were friendly, however the seating arrangement was not prepared for the large crowd and required many to have to stand up for the whole presentation. In addition the accoustics was terrible plus the screen presentation was not easy to read because of lightin and choice of light colors used in the displays..

    Presentation was insightful, as I'm a beginner and I got to know good tools to start with Data Science and other frameworks.

    For what it's worth I just went to another talk on the same subject - http://www.meetup.com/Silicon-Valley-Machine-Learning/events/170913812/ - (my notes: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aT0PQqcDDZMuyMKkjGdNfGXcpnf4etPQ2uWkfylKMBg/edit ; talk offered again: http://www.meetup.com/BigDataGurus/events/169886552/) - and as a non-PhD was discouraged. There are a lot of new PhDs going begging and you can be sure that they'll be hired for Data Scientist /proper/ roles before mere engineers. That leaves Data /Engineer/ roles - infrastructure, implementation - so it isn't /too/ discouraging. But it'll be interesting to hear another perspective.
