Frequently asked questions
from our community

Prerequisites

What are the prerequisites for the data science bootcamp?

Short answer: there are none!

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!

Will I be a good fit for the program?

Our program is specifically designed for working professionals who want to add some data scientist skills to their current positions, or who just want to learn what this new field is all about. We focus on teaching the concepts and underlying knowledge needed to do data science, rather than on platform-specific techniques.

Logistics

What are the logistics of the bootcamp?

Bootcamps are held Monday through Friday from 8am to 6pm. It’s 5 days of in-person, hands-on learning for 10 hours a day, with roughly 10 hours of pre-bootcamp coursework and 20 hours of (optional) post-bootcamp coursework.

Packages

What’s the difference between packages?

Our three packages are designed to reflect the level of assistance you might need as a learner.

Dojo is our economic option for self-sufficient practitioners, who might just be looking to brush up on their data science skills with the in-person experience.

Guru is our most popular package and comes with additional resources which will help you keep learning after the bootcamp.

Sensei is the premium package for learners who want assistance after the bootcamp, usually if they have a specific work project in mind.

You can find a document that lays out all our packages here.

Syllabus

Where can I find a detailed course outline?

You can find our data science bootcamp outline here.

Do you teach R or Python?

Our pre-bootcamp coursework includes tutorials on Introduction to R Programming to get you ramped up for the bootcamp! Our lessons are all based in R. However, for every R code snippet, we also provide the corresponding Python code. The logic will be the same, syntax will be different.

While we do work in R and Python during the bootcamps, knowledge of any programming language will work- as we teach the principles from a “software agnostic” point of view, the principles transfer across programming languages.
