Job Talk in Software Development and Data Science

current alum, Wil Cocke (Developer at ARCYBER)

I mostly work as a software developer with an emphasis on data science projects dealing with various Command specific projects. The data science life-cycle is fairly consistent across industries: collect, clean, explore, model, interpret, and repeat with a goal of providing insight to the organization. During my talk, I will share some lessons learned for mathematicians interested in transitioning to software development/data science.
