Moving to london in a monthโ€”any tips on job hunting in the UK? Specifically in the market for data science / NLP jobs.

Silicon Milkroundabout job fair is worth checking out
muzbwtjoj1mo
Neat! Thanks for the tip. Gonna try to register; it looks like it aligns well with my post-1 April arrival date!
akexdzokaesdpzu1mo
It's worth finding a recruitment agency that specialises in data science and telling them exactly what you're looking for an let them do the job hunting for you.

Is there a visa for freelancers in the UK/London like Germany/Berlin?

If youโ€™re seeking employment, thereโ€™s the traditional Tech Nation visa:

Just landed in London and a bit shocked_face_with_exploding_head at data prices on the prepaid sims. Anyone got any advice for good data options for UK and Europe?
cafjwcznjyqxq19d
I generally go with 3 mobile
lviksjprheunx19d
unlimited for 26 is a pretty good deal. just keep in mind that using it outside the UK you'll have a data cap.
ozd19d
I go with giffgaff
lrr19d
80GB data a month for ยฃ20
pqfkcbrowrwsc19d
with 20 GB available for roaming, that's a better deal if you'll spend more time in europe.
qnmfteael18d
Do these plans incur a cost if you make calls or text outside of the UK?
sjymsfqhfuxgo18d
Dunno. I never use my sim to make calls or texts. That's what WhatsApp is for.
lgv18d
Sometimes
luf18d
Giffgaff at least has a site where you ether country and shows the rates
vrt18d
And I like how itโ€™s not a contract so you can cancel anytime
jwmxkcpldgrueju18d
three mobile doesn't if in the EU (most countries for now)
xksdeshrh18d
Neat, thanks. I'm moving to the UK and trying to find a plan that most resembles my T-Mobile "Magenta Plus" plan here in the US. One thing I particularly like is the global partnership that allows free roaming and data (2G/3G) in different countries around the world. It'd be great to find something comparable

Curious to know what it's like in London right now amidst this Covid-19 pandemic

My move is delayed to London and I am curious to know what the on-the-ground feel is right now
eiugmydtt11d
Wow looks so eery
baoysrkon11d
Okay, glad to know they're attempting to at least socially distance
mciytwvehwihj11d
he says it's like a post apocalyptic scene
zhciuwkxv11d
From what I've read online, it seemed like this wasn't yet "officially" in practice
byfrlhmylkkfy11d
yeah, there are still tons of people ignoring it. this is one small square in a large city.
jxjlhculuvsaz11d
and they're still at the office vs working at home even though they're a media company and there is 0 need to be in the office.
qrxxfhqne11d
Any feel on government slowdown because of Covid-19? Selfishly, I have paperwork being processed by the British government and an crossing my fingers they are still able to process them ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
syirkyucgxbjf11d
i'm not in the UK, so i can't comment about here, but i just talked to a car dealer in germany about buying a car and he said the local govt is shut down for at least 4 weeks so nothing like that is being processed. so i would expect delays...
beqjkjwaw11d
Yeah, that's my current expectation of everything right now; with this changing so rapidly on a daily basis who knows what's to come
jxvgncglf11d
I mean not a shutdown but severe delays
ablhjgibcp11d
Iโ€™m here now. No official order for people to stay at home. No official order for businesses to close. Buses and tube running pretty much as usual. Many businesses closed or takeaway only. Food on shelves. Amazon prime and prime now working just fine. Food delivery companies are non-stop. If sustainable I would hope that no lockdown is needed.
wrnbzui11d
Supermarket doesn't have toilet paper, pasta, and low on other products.
Some people in the streets, maybe 10%of what is usual, surprisingly a lot of those are old people.
qbveugn11d
Im actually a bit worried if there is a lockdown since i was planning start being a nomad in May.
aajozui11d
My house contract is going to end in a month and i still need to send a lot of boxes back to my home country. :/ and i already have airbnbs booked in estonia and Poland
qhzizahbakcfrq10d
trgygtzz at least you donโ€™t have it the other way around - I have already paid for 2 months rent in expensive London that I can now say goodbye to ๐Ÿ˜ญ
kqopafppcmwyq10d
Didn't Airbnb change their cancellation fees so you can get refunds? Just wait until the places you're going are on the list and ask for the refund.

wuzmpkpqgcomgvv wanderingdev is right, if they close the borders airbnb allow for free cancelation. Or you're not coming either way?
wbwqyjmijxvyno10d
Itโ€™s not through airbnb unfortunately, but a regular sublet
rfugrlyza10d
So sorry to hear wlftsgkgcxkabqe ! Is there any way to get that back due to these extreme circumstances?
qixitxcfh10d
Thanks for the report. It seems then that London and DC (where I am now) feel similar. Most companies here are mandating people work from home though, so that could be contributing to the low traffic outside
gbmlgapqlzpmkd10d
kyfkejavzh Iโ€™ve tried asking for some money back, but Iโ€™m afraid itโ€™s a no! Itโ€™s a real shame, but Iโ€™m also reminding myself Iโ€™m lucky me and my family still have our health and a stable income, some are being hit way harder during these times
axillbcfo10d
That's a good attitude to have about it ๐Ÿ™‚
gbshmpgwxa10d
Luckily there are another 295 hospitals in London to help out ๐Ÿ˜…
kzyqeoabphrkp10d
you think they have 30k beds?
ysttysgful9d
Northwick Park sounds like a hotspot if they need that many beds
wtphzfarsppar9d
I think it's for the city, not that one area.
ocitpvxopabnb9d
interesting stats:

According to an intensive care doctor and professor here (in Belgium), there is a clear correlation between the number of intensive care beds pr 100,000 inhabitants and the Covid-19 case fatality rate (number of infected people who die).

For instance,

GERMANY
- 35 intensive care beds per 100,000 inhabitants
- 16,627 people infected with the coronavirus
- 44 deaths
- = case fatality rate of 0.26

FRANCE
- 10.4 intensive care beds per 100,000 inhabitants
- 10,995 people infected with the coronavirus
- 372 deaths
- = case fatality rate of 3.38

ITALY
- 8.6 intensive care beds per 100,000 inhabitants
- 41,035 people infected with the coronavirus
- 3,405 deaths
- = case fatality rate of 8.29
wjypk8d
Just a heads up, the case fatality rate (CFR) is not the percentage of infected people who die
marxy8d
it's the percentage of cases (infected person who was tested and diagnosed) that die
ifvvh8d
no country is doing randomised population testing, so cases < infections, and many countries have quite strict criteria for testing, for example that you must both have symptoms and have a known link to someone with an existing positive test result
hfgxn8d
CFR will be much higher than real fatality rate (the percentage of infected people that die), and the ratio between the two will be different in each country
