    Interesting discussion. However, would have preferred a presentation followed by Q&A rather than the Q&A only format.

    Was nice to see him speak. Would have liked to see a presentation, but as a Data Scientist, he spoke to the field which was good. That was nice because I was with a non-Data Scientist coworker, so now he knows how I tick.
