Are you interested in data science? Want to know how the interview process works and what topics will be covered? Come hear PyLady Sanghamitra Deb talk about how she landed a job at Accenture.
The definition of a data scientist is nebulous and varies with the necessities of every company, the role could be primarily software engineering with some statistics or purely data modeling and machine learning. Over the last few months I have interviewed for many companies and I have come across some common themes revolving around statistics, CS Algorithms , machine learning and more. I will discuss the importance of different topics in the interview process and mention some of the questions that I have come across. The aim of the talk is to give a comprehensive overview of knowledge base required for "Cracking the Data Science Interview".
This event is open to anyone identifying as a woman, and their friends.
8:00-8:30pm: Hang out, chat, eat more pizza.
I ride public transit, can I come?
Totally! For those of you coming from Caltrain, there's a free public shuttle that goes right to LinkedIn: http://www.caltrain.com/schedules/Shuttles/Shoreline_Shuttle.html
LI also has an official shuttle which technically is employees only, but unofficially it should be fine, too.
Hope to see you there!
A big thank you to LinkedIn for sponsoring us and giving us space and food. :)
