Enrollment in this course is by invitation only

In the instructor-led, five-day, in-person bootcamp, you will:

  • Learn the theory and practice of data science and engineering using state of the art tools
  • Explore, visualize, and cluster data
  • Build and evaluate predictive models for classification and regression
  • Design online experiments
  • Build an end-to-end internet of things (IoT) solution.
  • Be exposed to a variety of technologies: Hive, Hadoop, Mahout, Spark, stream processors and data ingestors.
  • Participate in a Kaggle competition.

Pre-requisites

You should have interest in data science and data engineering and knowledge of at least one programming language. However, many of our attendees come to us with little to no programming experience. Foundations of Data Science course will get you where you need to be to hit the ground running.

Overall Learning Outcomes

At the end of the bootcamp, every attendee should be able to:

  • Explore an unknown dataset
  • Build, evaluate, fine-tune and deploy a predictive model as a service
