John Conway is a Senior Software Developer for Microsoft.
I work at a large software company. I’m on a data engineering and you know data analytics team, so we have a lot of data and we know there’s a lot untapped inside in our data at this point. I was looking for a data science class because I read a lot I’ve looked at many videos and stuff but there’s something about getting hands-on. Being able to also, you know, see the gaps in my understanding because you can read a book and you can watch a video but you can’t ask yourself questions. So having a bootcamp like Data Science Dojo to come to and ask those questions.
I chose Data Science Dojo because so first up the length it fit much more to my schedule and also it had quite a breath of like all the different parts that I was interested in. And also they showcase a lot of different technologies not just like open source not just like Microsoft. It’s pretty intense I mean these are really, really long days but there’s a lot of questions, very interactive, a lot of great examples you know I mean – it’s hands-on, right, I mean and you actually get to see what makes a lot of the inner workings of the machine learning models why they work the way they are so you can become a better subject matter expert right by knowing these details.
