What’s the Talk About?

You’ve all heard about data scientists, and seen job postings for them. But what is the job like, really? Let me share the story of my first official data science project. While sharing the story I’ll stop to point out the skills used that many DBAs, PowerShell junkies, BI developers and architects already have. There may be a few new topics you’ll want to pick up. This is a show and tell session. It’s my hope that you come away with a better understanding of what a data scientist is, and be able to measure how far between where you are and your own first project.

About Shannon:

I am a data guy with a passion for partnering with clients to solve their database and technology issues. Over my career, I’ve played all the roles: database developer, administrator, business intelligence developer, and architect, and now consultant. I’m the guy you call in when you have the impossible problem and everyone tells you it cannot be solved. I automate solutions in order to free your current staff to do the higher value tasks. I bring solutions outside of traditional relational database solutions, in order to find the shortest path between you and your goals.

As an accomplished Microsoft SQL data professional, recognized BimlHero, and practicing Data Scientist, I’m the resource you need to extract the most value from your data.
