You'll familiarize yourself with various tools that Data Scientists use on a daily basis, as well as gain insight towards emerging practices in the field. We'll break down the significance of the field and explain how it differentiates itself from other Data practices.
The workshop will close with a hands-on exercise allowing you to apply and contextualize some of the practices and tools used to draw insights from data.
