This Saturday: #DataWeekender, DataSaturday Southwest

Geeked to be speaking 2x on Saturday May 14, my second time speaking at #DataWeekender and at the very first Data Saturday Southwest 2021.

My Certification Exams Inside Out is one of my favorite presentations to give. Its fun, its positive and career-oriented, it's useful for folks at any point in their career. Between my guided walkthrough based on actual experience and fun sample test questions, I hope help you understand both how a question gets written, and how best to go about answering.

Slides for my presentations are available for download on Github: #DataWeekender and Data Saturday Southwest 2021.
