About This Workshop

Explore one of the most promising and in-demand career paths for skilled professionals.

Basic business intelligence was once the gold standard in generating insights to drive important business decisions. In the information age, the amount of data available to businesses is nearly surpassing our ability to store, access, and analyze the results in an efficient manner.

Data science is emerging as a discipline to help take business intelligence to the next level by making it easier to harness large amounts of data, make accurate predictions, and create data-driven recommendations. Also, Data science continues to evolve as one of the most promising and in-demand career paths for skilled professionals.

The goal of this bootcamp is to give you a taste of data science. We will define what data science is and introduce the data scientist's toolset through examples and case studies. By the end of this session, you will be able to phrase problems in data science terms, approach the solution in a structured and rigorous manner, and understand how data visualization can help convey uncovered insights.

The well-being of our employees, students, clients, instructors, and guests is our number one priority here at General Assembly. We are monitoring COVID-19 very carefully and are adjusting delivery of our programs.

About the Instructor

William Sutton Photo

DSI Instructor,
General Assembly

Will got into data science originally in insurance, building backroom risk models and customer-facing software for scenario projections. And has taken on a broader view of the field by joining local nonprofits for a mapping project, and local hackerspaces to explore digital biology and electronics. Currently he's most interested in how computer vision could assist us to perform simple tasks at home and at work.

When he's not coding, he likes to use both sides of his brain, playing the piano and chess. Or letting his mind go totally blank at one of our beautiful National Parks.
