Software Engineering for Data Scientists
Graduate Students, Postdocs, Early Career Data Scientists
The Software Engineering for Data Scientists course is meant to help data scientists write production ready code as well as gain familiarity with the tools used to make models available to their users. The core idea we will be exploring is making code robust and re-usable across a team. This course can also serve as an introduction toward ideas used in ML Ops and Data Engineering.
