Remote data scientists is a group of people working in the field of data science which do their work (totally) remotely.
I recently started this group since it’s a good way to connect with other data scientists that are in a similar situation. Most of us travel quite a bit and face the same challenges like: how to find remote work? Where is a good place to work which has also a data community? But it can also be used to discuss technical challenges and keep up-to-data with cool projects that other people are doing.
Currently, most of the people in the group are staying in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We had our first physical meetup there and we will organize more. I am currently planning to give a workshop about data visualization using R shiny.
If you are also working remotely as a data scientist, please join us on facebook!
