You might be thinking “Why Word Camp? Isn’t that for web developers?”. You’re 100% right. The “tip of the spear” for data for the majority of companies is web based. The information that comes from a website, an app, or a software solution is what builds the foundation for data science work.
Developers tend to make really good data scientists. They understand programming languages and how to “fix” something that may not work the first time.
Lastly, when developers are bidding a job in direct competition they can charge a premium for a data component. So imagine being able to deliver even a basic level of data analysis as part of your deliverables.
Part of the discussion will be to connect developers to our Data Science Academy. Our Academy is the first step to allow a developer to enter the world of working with Data.
