What you'll learn:

At RStudio, we believe successful data science teams require the right technology: open source, code-first data science frameworks based on R and Python, centralized on-prem or in the cloud for ease of collaboration, sharing and administration. However, technology on its own is not enough. It is just as critical to focus on the people in your team. To have a sustainable impact on decision making in your organization, you need to build a productive, effective, and collaborative data science team.

In this panel webinar, you will hear from leaders at Warner Music Group, T-Mobile, Saturn Cloud, The Looma Project, and Caliber Home Loans, about what it takes to build a successful data science team:

  • Their experiences and perspective on building great data science teams of both R and Python users
  • How their teams prioritize and deliver work in a way that adds value to their organizations, while also maintaining credibility among stakeholders even when the results aren’t necessarily good news
  • Their advice for advancing your own data science career and collaborating with non-data-science stakeholders

Really great session today! I found it super useful and well done. Big thanks to all the presenters and organizers!
