Nope! While we do recommend having some knowledge of at least one programming/scripting language or computing environment, many of our attendees come to us with little to no experience with programming. Our pre-bootcamp coursework includes tutorials on Introduction to R Programming to get you ramped up for the bootcamp!
Our motto is, “data science for everyone”. We will introduce you to the fundamentals of data science from data visualization to predictive analytics, to machine learning, data mining, and more!
We have had over 4,000 people attend our bootcamp from over 1000 companies in various industries, job titles, and functions. Our course is suitable for beginners. We have developed the course such that beginners can watch the pre-bootcamp tutorials in order to come prepared for the bootcamp. The pre-bootcamp tutorials will familiarize you with the fundamentals of data mining, and introduce you to three data science tools: R (programming language), Azure ML, and Amazon ML. If you watch all the pre-bootcamp tutorials and quizzes, you will be well-prepared for the bootcamp. We have had attendees with diverse backgrounds from various industries who have successfully transformed their careers by learning data science.
