I appreciate how much effort was placed in making the resources available. All the teachers and assistants were very helpful and took time to address all the problems we had. It was also a very practical bootcamp since we got to participate in a kaggle datascience contest during the week. Overall, this was an awesome bootcamp!!
I attended the Data Science Dojo data science bootcamp in Albuquerque, NM in October 2019. This was an outstanding learning experience. I had previously completed an IBM data science certificate on coursera. However, I still struggled with concepts and applications. I signed up for the bootcamp with the hope of enhancing my skills and ability to apply the knowledge. I was not disappointed! The instructors were extremely knowledgeable, patient, engaging, and lively. I truly can not believe the breadth of knowledge and skills I have gained in just 1 week. I now know that, not only am I well versed in various algorithms, techniques, and metrics, but more importantly I KNOW HOW TO APPLY IT in the real world. How do I know this? Well, with what I’ve learned I’m already exploring, analyzing, and predicting with my own real world data from my laboratory. Things that I use to struggle through are now easily implemented and explored. If you’re thinking of signing up for a DS bootcamp, Data Science Dojo is the way to go! Great experience!
Oh…did I mentioned that this was an ACCREDITED certificate program in conjunction with the University of New Mexico!? This is the first ACCREDITED DS certificate from a bootcamp that I’m aware of.
You shouldn’t hesitate to sign up for a Data Science Dojo bootcamp. It will be an extremely rewarding experience!
I had already taken some data science lessons online before the bootcamp, but I still found it very helpful. The instructors explained how things work, and made us think by asking many questions. The interactive aspect of the classroom was great.
I had taken ML and AI in Undergrad and looking at the curriculum made me wonder.. how can 2 semesters worth of class fit in 5 days? I’ll tell you .. you focus on theory and directly use off the shelf library and have learnt enough to command the parameters.
I really liked it. It exposes you to many different tools and the online material is great.
This bootcamp helped me to understand the essentials related to data science. It helps you understand the theory behind data science but also emphasizes that it’s all about the data and knowing your data. It was an all encompassing class. I learned so much that I hope to be able to utilize in the near future.
This bootcamp was the perfect opportunity for me to expand my data science skill set in a low pressure, high positivity environment. There really was something for everyone here, and the class had a diversity of backgrounds, occupations, education levels, and personalities. It was genuinely fun, even when discussing very detailed statistical equations.
It’s definitely a long week, and you will be very tired at the end of each day. However, if you invest your time and attention in the lectures, activities, and homework, you will get so much out of it. This was 50+ hours well-spent, and I know that I will bring much more value to my job from what I learned at Data Science Dojo.
