This talk will focus on the gaps that exist in today’s enterprise workforce and university education as it relates to the new STEM and Data Science workplace. Specifically, as major educational institutions launch undergraduate Data Science degrees, the industry is looking at data scientists with 3-5 years of experience. How can universities and enterprises collaborate to reduce this gap? Ideas include incubators on campus and departments prioritizing open source development work within courses. We will also cover the gaps of expectations in priorities when millennials and Gen Z join the workforce - hired by executives from the classic Gen X school of people management. The talk will also go into use cases from real-world to show how Open Source is the key to solving this major disconnect!
