Build your data science skills in Atlanta

This post is authored by Amanda Papp, Sr. Recruiter of AI/Machine Learning at Microsoft.

It’s a good time to be a data scientist.

As a senior recruiter in AI and machine learning, I’ve had a front row seat to the skyrocketing demand for skilled machine learning practitioners, big data engineers, and AI specialists over the last several years.

And I can tell you: It’s not just the hot job of the future—it’s a hot job right now. Here at Microsoft, data scientists have become part of our DNA. They’re woven into every team, and that’s not unusual. Organizations are increasingly dependent on data scientists to help them understand customers, challenge assumptions, innovate, and drive business forward.

Now’s the time to grow your expertise.

With so much attention and energy focused on data, innovation is happening quickly. Which means that whether you’ve been doing analysis for years or are just getting started, it’s a key time to stay abreast of the latest breakthroughs and new technologies.

The Microsoft Data Science Summit is designed to help you do it. It will get you hands-on with the latest technologies. You’ll learn about real-world examples and use cases, and you’ll get architectural guidance and practical tips for how to implement data science solutions in your organization. Plus—and this is no small thing—you get to share ideas with the data science community, some of the most creative, curious, can-do people I’ve ever met.

Join the data science community in Atlanta.

I hope you’ll join us in Atlanta to explore the new techniques and technologies that you can use to help your organization and expand your career.

The Microsoft Data Science Summit is September 26–27 in Atlanta, GA.
