19:00-19:45 Emily's presentation
As data science explodes in popularity, more and more people are vying for entry-level data science jobs. How can you stand out from the crowd? If you're a junior or mid-level data scientist, how can you continue to grow your skills, meet other data scientists, and share what you've learned?
In this talk, Emily will show you how you can make a strong data science portfolio, including by giving talks, contributing to other's open source projects, writing tutorials, and building side projects, that will accelerate your career.
