Introduction This past March I had the distinct pleasure of participating in a panel about making the career transition to data science as part of Kaggle’s CareerCon 2018. As a result of this experience, I’ve gotten enough emails asking for more information about my data science journey that it warrants a blog post, per David Robinson’s advice:
When you’ve written the same code 3 times, write a function
When you’ve given the same in-person advice 3 times, write a blog post
We’re so close to March, which for many of you involves a lot of college basketball.
But there’s another exciting challenge happening, once which also happens to involve your participation: R4DS is hosting its first series of community member talks!
The Challenge: Participate! Four of our community members have graciously stepped up to record a 20-30 minute talk on an R4DS-related topic, and they will be developing these over the next few weeks.
