WWCODE Seattle: Data Science & Machine Learning Study Group

Join us for a bi-weekly study group for Data Science and Machine learning. We can use this time to quietly work, help each other get unstuck, and get inspired! Have some accountability time for study and/or projects.

Starting 2023, we will use the first 30 mins or so to discuss or learn about a topic. We will have both technical and non-technical topics. Please refer to the following schedule for topics and hosts of the next 3 sessions.
1/17 "What motivates you to work in Data Science and Machine Learning?" hosted by Yuki
1/31 [Guest host] "Introduction to visualization with Bokeh library" hosted by Zulfiia
2/14 [Guest host] "Advanced visualization with Bokeh library" hosted by Zulfiia

Note these are not teaching sessions, rather just a friendly place for folks to get together, share knowledge, and collectively work on their own projects.
