Introduction

Data science lover and COO of NYC Data Science Academy

What Janet K. is saying about this Meetup Group

I just completed the Data Science Academy intensive beginner course for R. Vivian Zhang is the most committed teacher I've ever had. Yes, she meticulously prepares class materials (which I still refer to daily), and she is expert in all areas of data science, but beyond all this, Vivian has her heart set on every one of her students succeeding. She makes herself available during the week to support the learning process - whether through office hours, hangouts, or email. She is always sitting on your shoulder, pushing you and rooting for you. I'd never coded before, and after five weeks I am able to get myself around in R (well, yes, as a beginner still), and have been able to start using it as a tool in my work as a statistician. Kudos to Vivian and to NYC Data Science Academy!
