Shout-out to all students, mums, working professionals and active agers who are curious about the sexiest job of the 21st century --- Data Scientist (according to The Harvard Business Review)! Yes, everyone can learn Data Science and you do not have to struggle alone. No prior knowledge is required!

Code for Asia is launching CodeCircle, a beginner-friendly, social learning network, where you can learn and interact with people like yourself who have a similar interest in Data Science. Come learn beyond the buzz, acquire programming basics and start building real projects that you can showcase.

Through learning and hands-on practices, CodeCircle creates learning circles for everyone to learn Data Science together. CodeCircle starts this 1 November, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, culminating in a Data Hackathon and Career Conference at the end of the series.

Be sure to bring a laptop as this will be a hands-on experience!
