In this interview, learn more about how Maren moved from being a Data Umbrella scikit-learn participant to a mentor, and then to organise open source workshops.
- How did you learn of the Data Umbrella scikit-learn sprints and what inspired you to attend?
I learned of the first Data Umbrella scikit-learn online sprint, which took place in June 2020, via Twitter. I was interested in contributing to open source and had already made one contribution to scikit-learn. However, when I started contributing to open source I didn’t have a network of like-minded people. I was very much looking forward to connecting with people who shared my interest in open source, data science, and scikit-learn, and to building a professional network in this field.
