TDI Data Chat: Journey of a Leading Data Scientist
Join us on Monday October 18th at 11:00am PT (2pm ET) to get a behind the scenes look at how leading data scientists land their dream roles and how their journey can lead to unexpected but interesting outcomes.

Our host and data science guru Michael Li will be leading a Q&A session with Peter Yu about his data path, what led him to data science and what he learned along the way from being a 2015 TDI alum to working for McKinsey & Company to now working for Amazon Web Services (AWS).

This is our first TDI data chat! This will be a more casual setting than our typical webinars and you’ll hear from real data professionals with real stories. This candid-style session will be about 45-minutes long with the option for Q&A at the end - so make sure you bring your most pressing questions.

We can’t wait for you to join us!

Oct 18, 2021 11:00 AM in Arizona
