Members of this Meetup group will get and give personalized career advice, learn content and receive content recommendations from peers, and intelligently grow their professional network. The most successful practitioners have many mentors and even more mentees. Join us - your career depends on it!

The goal of this event is to equip you with proven techniques to transform yourself into a Data Scientist.
