About Becoming A Data Scientist

BecomingADataScientist.com is a blog created by Renee Teate to track her path from "SQL Data Analyst pursuing an Engineering Master's Degree" to "Data Scientist". She created this club so participants can work together and help one another learn data science. See her other site DataSciGuide for more learning resources.
