Code Tasting: Data and Algorithms

Ready for today's virtual chat with a #coding expert? TOPIC: Code Tasting: Data and Algorithms. Learning to code has become a phenomenon - and we couldn't be more elated! However, it can be discouraging to see that many virtual programs require at LEAST a weeks’ long commitment, and #bootcamps/ academic classes cost a lot. Research in #ComputerScience education suggests that having even a minimal background before taking the dive into formal instruction is beneficial, as is getting the right start. Ursula Wolz, PhD, has been teaching introductory coding for over 30 years using innovate classroom techniques. She invented a conceptual model called ‘DAHLIA’ that stands for ‘Data’, ‘Algorithms’, ‘Heuristics’, ‘Logic’, ‘Interface’ and ‘Abstraction' which we'll be covering virtually, on PowerToFly! This three-part series introduces these concepts in three lessons as well as suggestions for further work. Using the P5.js online framework, participants will dive into code within five minutes of the first session. A ‘homework’ challenge will be given at the end of the session for those who want to take things further, along with access for time with Ursula if needed! Submit your questions and join the conversation! ⤵️

We're excited about tomorrow's chat with another #WomanLeader. Carly Villareal is the head of #DataScience and #Analytics at Nextdoor. TOPIC: What Type Of Data Scientist Are You? A #DataScientist role can mean a lot of different things, and it's important to make sure your own expectations around the job are aligned with what the role is actually looking for. How do you figure out where on the spectrum of "data science" the role actually is, and how do you think about your own skills and career aspirations in the #data world? Join us for this live, virtual Q&A to find out! ⤵️ http://bit.ly/2IzazY9

Ready to chat with a #WomanExpert? Join us today, *live* at 3pm EDT. TOPIC: Breaking Limiting Beliefs ABOUT THE EXPERT: Ingrid Harb is an international speaker and founder of two incredible organizations, she also identifies a #MexicanAmerican. Throughout her upbringing, neither country accepted her wholeheartedly, deciding she was always "too much" of one culture and not enough of the other. This limiting belief didn't stop Ingrid, and she's joining the PowerToFly Community to relay the message that it shouldn't stop you either. At only 26 Ingrid has raised 500k +, partnered with over 50 Fortune 500 Companies and created over ten global forums and local forums that have reached women from over 95 countries. Join this chat and ask Ingrid anything - how she combats reverse-agism, #bias or how she launched her startups, LIVE! See you in a few! ⤵️
