Hi Fishes, I immediately need to switch my role related to Data science/ML/AI with good hike. Suggest some companies and ways. I'm willing to learn new things after deployment.

YOE : 1.5 years as Python developer

Skills : C, Python, Excel in writing SQL queries, Swagger, Microservices, PostgreSql Aws(Lambda, Api gateway, SNS, SQS), Angularjs, PHP.

My background is in tech transactional. I joined a cybersecurity SaaS startup at the end of last year and now also handle more generalist matters in addition to all things commercial-related. I have a number of books on contracts that I’ve found super helpful over the years (The Tech Contracts Handbook, A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Sign Here, etc.). Can anyone recommend books they’ve found helpful for L&E matters, privacy matters, product matters, or marketing/advertising matters?
