Our guest on the podcast this week is Chirag Mehta, Silicon Valley Product Executive and Adjunct Faculty at Santa Clara University. We discuss careers in cloud computing, emphasizing the importance of quality Data Scientists and Product Managers. There is currently a lack in Data Science talent, and the road to more is through training both at the university level and by current employers. It is hard to cultivate a data mindset, because it requires a level of creativity and willingness to experiment. Each data set tells a story, and talented Data Scientists either know the right questions to ask or can find the right questions by observing trends in the data.
