Announcing the new DSS Community Network

By Data Science Salon

We believe that especially these days of remote working where many of us work from home it’s more important than ever to have a space to come together and be part of a like-minded group.

In the past weeks we’ve been working in stealth mode and thinking about ways to best serve our data science community to meet each other, exchange best practices and ultimately grow together to be more successful. 

We're beyond excited to finally announce our fresh new Data Science Salon Community Network, your virtual home to do exactly that!

Introducing our brand new community

With our new community platform we're creating a hub for data scientists network, learn and up with the latest news and events (including complimentary conference passes!). Here's what you can do in the new DSS community Network:

  • πŸ‘‹ Meet data science practitioners and decision makers in your industry.
  • πŸ’‘ Exchange AI and machine learning best practices and challenges.
  • πŸ“š Discover the latest content including data science blog posts, podcasts episodes, expert interviews, webinars and much more!
  • πŸ“ Connect to other members near you.

So, whether you're a data scientist looking for useful articles and help from the community to solve your technical challenges or a data science manager interested in connecting to other leaders in your industry, this is your place. 


There's a LOT you can do on the new network and we'll be building out the features as the community grows. Here's some of the main features to check out:

  • Home: main feed where you see the latest and most relevant announcements, including personal introductions, event announcements, job shares, questions from the community, shared resources etc.
