• Datacamp - Python for Data Science - Part 2 of 4

    Online event

    SDTIG will be hosting four virtual meetings for April - July on Python for Data Science. We're covering the datacamp learn path found here: https://learn.datacamp.com/career-tracks/data-scientist-with-python This is 22 courses and we are covering eight of them. Your assignment is to watch these courses before you come to our meeting. Scott and I will meet for 90 minutes to discuss what we learned in both courses, what is valuable, what we disagree with, what we wish we learned, and how we've used it in the real world. We'll also demo the projects we built.
