We teamed up with Fast Company to host two of the leading minds in data, Claudia Perlich from Dstillery and Marc Maleh from R/GA, at our campus in New York City. Sarah Lawson, an assistant editor at Fast Company, moderated the discussion as they chatted about their everyday work with data, their favorite parts of the industry, and what it’s really like to work in data.
If you’re interested, Perlich says, just getting started and getting involved is the best way to begin working with data. As Maleh points out, there is a ton of data that you can access for free, too. Data is becoming an ever-present force as technology advances, and more businesses are searching for talented data scientists than ever before. With the right tools and education, and advice from these two experts, you will be able to kickstart a career in data in no time!
