In February we heard some interesting debates about the ethics of data science, how bootcamps are partnering with universities, and companies like Infosys and Google, and how the number of tech education options in Africa is growing! Plus, Thinkful attempted to predict the Oscars, the Ohio Lt. Governor stopped by Tech Elevator, and women in bootcamps were recognized. We also looked at various ways to pay for bootcamp, and tips for breaking into tech. Listen to the podcast or read the roundup below.

Liz & Imogen’s Favorite Blog Posts

  • Imogen enjoyed learning all about AWS (Amazon Web Services) from Codesmith instructor. Schno Mozingo. He explained the origins of AWS, how it helps companies launch websites without a huge amount of local hardware, and how software engineers use AWS on a day-to-day basis. Check out the article to find some links to videos and courses which can help you start learning how to use AWS!
  • Liz got to talk to two Metis graduates, Emily and Halle, on a video Q&A this month. These two women actually graduated from the same Metis cohort a couple of years ago, and have since progressed their careers! They chatted about how they’ve gone from Junior Data Scientists to mid/senior level data scientists, and gave some great advice for any bootcamp graduate.
