ICYMI: How to Do Data Science

In case you missed it:

Earlier this year, Brandon Rohrer, Senior Data Scientist in the Data Group at Microsoft, published a popular blog post titled How to Do Data Science. Brandon is one of our speakers at the upcoming Microsoft Data Science Summit, a two-day intensive event for data scientists, big data engineers, ML practitioners and technical managers. The Summit runs on September 26-27 in Atlanta. In his talk, Brandon will provide a comprehensive overview of how to do data science from start to finish. Brandon's talk is aimed at the brand new data scientist, and his session will require no math, programming, or previous experience. You can follow him @_brohrer_. Register for the Summit
