Our data science instructors eat, sleep, and breathe data. Joseph Nelson, who leads our Data Science Immersive at GA’s Washington, D.C., campus, passionately prepares students for careers in the high-demand field, while fostering relationships in the local data community.
But he doesn’t stop at the classroom.
After noting that this past winter was the first in five years without a federal snow day, Nelson dug into government data, Google Trends, and APIs to see what determined the declaration of a snow-covered day off.
On our publication The Index, see how Nelson created data-driven methodology, visualizations, and an in-depth analysis to unpack the mystery behind the capitol’s lack of snow days.
