Notes: Questions and Topics
SQLbits Coming Up
Our first topic of the night hit on SQLbits, which is coming up March 8-12. Registration is open right now and there are in-person and virtual options available. Note that this is a paid conference.
Becoming a Data Analyst
Our main topic of the night came in from a chat question:
I want to become a data analyst. I’m currently working in a profession not related to tech. Is this a pipe dream?
This is a great question and we spend a lot of time on (hopefully!) practical tips on how to get into the world of data analysis. Mike, Mala, and I come at this from different angles and one of the things I reiterate a few times is that data work is a career people move into, not start in. Quite often, somebody starts in a different field, begins to do data analysis within that area, and eventually decides to specialize in it when they find out how fun it is.
