If you've been following along with my blog posts, you might know that I'm part of a team competing in the Data Science Melbourne Datathon. Well, we just found out over the weekend that we're one of only 10 teams that have been chosen to present at the Datathon finals on Wednesday!
My experiences competing in the Data Science Melbourne Datathon!
When you're working hard on long-term goals, it can get really hard to see the forest for the trees. Every little achievement I am making along the way will become a little part of the whole of my success. Sometimes I realize that I need to stop, take a breath and acknowledge the little wins.

Recently, I was approached by a work colleague who has a mutual interest in Data Science. He wanted to know about my plans for becoming a Data Scientist, and if I could lend some insight to his plans. So I thought, why not make a post here to share our findings and help someone else in their journey! (I've included a bunch of links to resources that have been helpful to me, or have come highly recommended!)
