Crashing the Coding Interviews

Online event

How to crack the coding interviews?

Let Anna Nyulund introduce you to the world of coding interviews:

First and foremost, I love building data analytics and
machine learning applications that help people. I am
obsessed with digging into data and discovering difficult-to-find, nonlinear insights that bring clarity to chaos.
Data Science and Machine Learning Engineering are never-ending puzzles that I am passionately engaged in solving. I
believe in the power of data to transform and improve the
lives of people around the world.
I had a long journey in data science starting with complex
engineering data solutions in robotics, working with
business intelligence applications and fixing data streams
for these applications, progressing to using advanced
statistical methods as a Data Scientist, and finally evolving
into a full-scale Principal Data Scientist and Data Strategist.
Outside of my work, I work on developing natural language processing algorithms for legal document parsing and
attorney services ranking, visiting vegan restaurants, taking
care of my dogs, and completing home improvement
Join me for the evening of fun and I will teach you about Coding Interviews from my rich experience.
