I've been a software developer and data scientist since 1994. I've worked at Google, Amazon, Pinterest, and a host of startups. I would be happy to answer questions, either one-on-one (bring some code to run and debug, or a particular problem) or to the whole group (bring questions), during this session. We'll write down questions for 5 minutes, then start going.
I'll favor questions that more people are interested in. So, this is likely a group discussion, heavily moderated by me. If that happens, then I can answer one-on-one questions outside the session.
NEW ADDITION: Link to submit questions: https://dory.app/events/s0ThwSO90oMfPdQfuNWQ/71fde18f_minnebar17-data-science-q-a/. Go ahead and submit and vote whenever you like. This is an experiment.

Some possible topics I could help with:
Or maybe I'll crash and burn. Or maybe the room will be empty for 50 minutes. Who knows!
I have worked at twin cities startups (Net Perceptions, Orasi Medical, code42, Blue Shift Labs), at larger companies (Google, Amazon, Pinterest), and as a fellow in the GroupLens research lab at the University of Minnesota. I was a data scientist at Pinterest for six years (from startup to big). See more at linkedin.
