About this workshop

Whether you have experience in programming or are looking to get started for the first time, this online workshop will put you on the fast track to honing your python and data analysis skills. In this bootcamp you’ll get hands-on programming experience in Python that you'll be able to immediately apply in the real world. The workshop will cover the fundamentals of Python and several tools used in data science.

This online workshop is for analysts, product managers, mathematicians, business managers or anyone else that wants to learn how to code in Python for data science.

Takeaways

In this workshop you'll learn a bit about 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

This is a very practical and hands-on online workshop that has lots of class exercises.

Prereqs & Preparation

Sublime Text is recommended and has a free trial version (http://www.sublimetext.com/).

In addition, students should install Anaconda, which is a free package that includes python and a number of tools that will be used in class (http://continuum.io/downloads - Python 2.7 Graphical Installer).

Basic technical aptitude and orientation to computers, and curiosity to learn new tools.

Willingness to learn about a text-based/principle driven analytic tool with little real GUI support, and determination to push through the natural frustration of confronting new concepts.

We will provide login information and a link to the platform on the day before the session.

If you enrol less than 24 hours before the bootcamp commences, please email sydney@generalassemb.ly for instructions. This bootcamp is taken completely online in one 3-hour session.
