March 18: Data Tools Panel


Thursday March 18, 2021
12:00pm - 1:00pm (MST)
Virtual Event
Registration: Here
"All genders - All experience levels - All sectors" welcome!

Abstract:

Our panel of amazing experts will talk us through the tools of the trade for a Data Scientist. All the way from importing, modeling and cleaning your data to analyzing, visualizing and applying predictive algorithms. We’ll also chat about the often overlooked tools for collaborating with your team and sharing your analysis online.

With GeoWomenYYC’s “Data By Design” datathon we want to focus on designing an analysis over hard coding skills. We see coding and algorithms as useful tools but ultimately a means to an end. We will continue the Data Tools discussion over on our Slack workspace where we hope to generate discussion around various open source tools, where to get training and how to build a portfolio.

We hope you will join us on Slack.
