About This Workshop

This workshop will introduce students to data exploration and machine learning techniques. Students will learn about the data science workflow and will practice exploring and visualizing data using Python and built in libraries. Students will also explore supervised machine learning techniques and practice creating a predictive classification model.

A background in computer science, programming, and/or statistics is preferred for this workshop. It is strongly recommended that you have a some level of Python experience and are able to write simple scripts.

***We're also offering an Introduction to Python Bootcamp the day prior. If you're interested in both subjects, you can purchase both bootcamps as a bundle for a discounted price. Sign-up for the full weekend here!
