    Explore Data science

    After graduating from UCT, I worked at Explore Data Science in Woodstock, Cape Town. As a part of the Explore team I created content to teach students at the data science academy various digital skills. These digital skills included python, machine learning and Java. My other main responsibility was to create a web-app to process written documentation submitted by students.
