Austin Lasseter

Senior Python Engineer, ScienceLogic

Washington, D.C.

I'm Austin Lasseter, and I'm a software engineer and tech instructor located in Northern Virginia. I'm fascinated by the intersection of Software Development and Machine Learning! I've taught the full range of data courses with General Assembly, including Data Analytics (three times), Python programming (five times), and Data Science (over a dozen times) between 2018 and 2022. A life-long learner, I love to share with my fellow students the latest advancements in automation of AI/ML in the AWS cloud.

In addition to my classes with General Assembly, I work full-time as a software developer at a startup focused on AIOps. My specialty is building and deploying machine learning models. I love learning new ways to create digital products with Amazon Web Services, and to share with others what I've learned and built.

I hold a PhD in Policy from the University of Maryland with a concentration in Survey Statistics, and over a dozen relevant certifications including the Amazon Machine Learning certification, the Machine Learning Engineer nanodegree from Udacity, and a certificate in Data Science from General Assembly. When I'm not throwing it down with Python, you'll find me running marathons, kayaking on the Shenandoah river, or rock-climbing in Great Falls!
