As the Project Manager for the non-profit, Teaching Kids Programming, which aims to introduce kids to data science via fun and engaging Internet of Things environments, Jessica Ellis understands the importance of bridging the gap between young generations and programming.
She was first exposed to the world of computer programming when her sons began to show an interest in creating their own computer programs. With a love for mathematics and statistics, Jessica dove into classes and began teaching them herself, eventually. Alongside fellow BAC speaker Lynn Langit at Teaching Kids Programming, Jessica also has learned to program in Java, and has helped set up classes with the Boys and Girls Club of San Dieguito.
Jessica is teaching PASS Business Analytics Conference attendees what it takes to set up an Internet of Things project, through her case study of using Python courseware to show kids how to connect smarter sensor data from the farm with better food in their stomachs. Catch "Internet of Things Farm: Introducing Kids to Data Science" this April, and follow Jessica on Twitter and on LinkedIn.
