About This Workshop Series

Over the course of the bootcamp, you'll learn the end-to-end data science process, covering the fundamentals of Python and several tools used in data science. You’ll get hands-on programming experience in Python that you'll be able to immediately apply in the real world.

We offer a more advanced Data Science part time course over 10 weeks; which covers this space in both broader and greater detail. See HERE for more detail.

Students must bring a laptop with Anaconda pre-installed, ensure you select to download Python 2 (not 3).

Schedule

Dec 20
Tuesday, 20 December 10 am – 1 pm GMT Part 1
  • Fundamentals of Python
  • Import Data Science Packages
  • Read Data From Files
Dec 20
Tuesday, 20 December 2 5 pm GMT Part 2
  • Machine Learning Algorithms
  • Build Predictive Model
  • Evaluate Model Performance

Takeaways

You'll learn the end-to-end data science process:

  • Collect data from a variety of sources (e.g., Excel, CSV files)
  • Explore and investigate large data sets
  • Apply machine learning algorithms to build predictive models in Python
  • Greater preparedness for GA's Data Science part-time course

This is a very practical and hands-on class that has lots of exercises. You'll build your own library of Python scripts that can be reused after you're done with the bootcamp.

Prereqs & Preparation

Students must bring a laptop with Anaconda pre-installed, ensure you select to download Python 2 (not 3). Download for free from continuum.io/downloads

Students should have some programming and statistical experience. This workshop will feature stats, maths and programming, all related to the field of Data Science. If you are new to Python, we recommend you complete up to Unit 10 of Python on Codecademy.

About the Instructor

Data Science Consultant

Over the years, John has added a number of strings to his bow. Statistician, geneticist, business analyst, startup founder, software developer, educator, non-profit strategist, data scientist, multi-instrumentalist! He currently runs a data science consultancy focused on helping businesses to identify and solve the challenges they face through a combination of research-grade statistical techniques, strategic analysis and a lean-startup engineering mentality.

Until recently he was the Lead Data Scientist at YPlan. Prior experience includes business analytics at Apple Inc., genomics research at Imperial College London, building an ed-tech startup at Knodium, developing strategy & technological infrastructure for international non-profit startup STIR Education, and losing sleep to many a hackathon along the way.

He's also been known to dabble in violin; a concerto here, a pop gig there, occasionally conducting youth ensembles, and usually playing with his folk music band.
