Women Who Code Meetup
From Bootcamp to Beyond: My Journey as a Data Scientist
Presented by Ashley Steele
Are you thinking of attending a bootcamp? Are you curious about what a data scientist ACTUALLY does? Maybe a bit of both? Come out and listen to Ashley discuss her experience in deciding to switch careers, choose the right bootcamp for her, and what she actually did as a part of her data science program!

//Casual Code & Connect//
Join us for a night of casual coding and networking! Come work on a project, do some exercises or tutorials, pair program, or absorb by osmosis. All levels of expertise are welcome and we strongly encourage you to ask questions, exchange ideas, talk about what you want to learn.
We will start the Meetup with introductions and some lightning talks! If you’re interested in giving a lightning talk, prepare 5 minutes of material and we’ll put you “on stage.” Remember that the primary purpose of these talks is to get practice speaking in front of an audience, and to receive candid feedback from peers!
Happy Coding (:
