About This Workshop

Interested in data science, but don’t know where to start? Then the Data Science Bootcamp is for you. This day long workshop is designed to allow the data curious to gain a panoramic view of the data science profession and its most important ideas. By the end of the day you’ll understand the types of data a data scientist typically works with, key patterns they try and identify, and see working examples of analytical models used for different types of problems. It’s meant to help you get "The Big Picture" about data science before you decide if it’s the right field for you and pursue further study in it.

This workshop places a heavy emphasis on examples with working code to illustrate the daily tools that are used to wrangle, manipulate and make sense of complicated data. Although it uses many coding examples it does not require coding skills from its students (even though that always helps!) in order to participate.

Who This Workshop Is For:

  • Someone curious about the data science profession
  • Those thinking about a career change into data science or enrolling into a bootcamp for it
  • Business managers who work with data scientists and need to quickly assemble a useful working knowledge of what it entails
  • Programmers who are looking to become interdisciplinary and make themselves aware of how code and analytical models interact
  • Individuals or organizations who are struggling to figure out how to use data science for their particular situation

General Assembly’s classes, workshops & events are for recreational purposes and are not regulated by the bureau of proprietary school supervision.

If this class is recorded, students will be sent the recording link within 7 days after class completion by email. Students are encouraged to download and save any shared materials (worksheets, deck if applicable) during class for later reference as they are not be shared by email.

Takeaways

  • An overview of the main tools of Data Science, and a detailed walk through of the major skills needed to do the job as well as the time spent on each
  • Real data science examples that illustrate the problems organizations typically encounter when trying to get data science to work for them
  • Guided examples of the different data sources used in the business: files, database, and APIs
  • An explanation of the different types of patterns commonly found in data that need to be analyzed
  • The main problems that data science can solve, and what techniques to use for each
  • Live code examples of different statistical models: machine learning, forecasting, and causal inference

Preparation

  • Download and install Anaconda before class (this will include python): https://www.anaconda.com/products/individual

  • If you do not download Anaconda you will need python 3.+ installed on your computer

  • Experience with python is helpful but coding experience is not necessary to complete the workshop

  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.

  • This class will occur completely online using Zoom.

  • Class setup information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your class launches.

  • Each individual class participant must have purchased a ticket
