DataWhys 2020 Summer Internship

Everything you need to know to make the most out of your internship

Welcome!

The internship will have two phases, lasting 5 weeks and 3 weeks, respectively. In the first phase, you will work through a loosely structured course to learn data science. In the second phase, you will work in teams on a real data science project.

Because the internship is online, it is very important for you to become familiar with the technologies we will be using to stay connected:

What Where Why
UoM Email https://ummail.memphis.edu/ This is your official employment email address
Slack go here (join link disabled 7/24/20) This is instant-message software you can use to ask questions or chat
JupyterHub see schedule and cheat sheet (disabled 7/24/20) This is where you will work on data science problems
OKpy http://okpy.org/ This is where you will submit work for feedback

Schedule

Your schedule for the first five weeks will be very similar every day. The only major differences are Tuesdays, when you will have lunch with a faculty member (online) and Thursdays, when we will have a presentation.

In the second phase, you will be working with your project team and faculty mentor, who will set your team’s schedule.
