My name is Marcos Lacayo. I am from Nicaragua. I’m an entrepreneur and in health care. I started a company called Estación Vital. I looked into, you know, masters and doctorate, and this and that. With the curriculum that I saw at Data Science Dojo pretty much this is exactly what I needed to really see, to really understand the data, and predict real and direct targeted advertising.It’s not an easy boot camp it’s mind-blowing. I mean anybody who wants to do this, be ready, be mentally ready. You have to be ready to learn what will change the world because I think data science is going to be a tool that every single person will need – either you’re marketing, you’re in health care, you are in the military, or whatever aspect in the world, you will need the tip of the iceberg of data science.It’s an open space, I mean everybody talks to each other. We interact, we network, we share experiences, what we do, what we like, what we don’t like. So I think it’s a good mix. I think it’s better to start from little and until you – it’s like an iceberg, you know? Starting at the tip and then go down to see what you needed to understand everything. And this is exactly what it was. The Data Science Dojo gives you everything that gives you the tip of the iceberg.”
This is extremely valuable, because you really get a good appreciation for what’s happening, and it makes you much more educated. I think it’s excellent, excellent training.

[The bootcamp] was a great experience. The curriculum was well balanced of theory and hands-on labs. The instructor really helps us move from topic to topic and we are able to gain a certain level of knowledge that we need to become practitioners of these tools. Also, the opportunity to share in the experience with the other students was very rewarding.

Director of Data Analytics
I think this bootcamp is best suited for anyone who’s interested in data science either as a career or anyone who either leads a team or manages people who are data scientists. I feel like I’m walking away with a lot of really usable information and a base level of information to build on if I decide that I want to go further in the data science field.

I definitely agree with this, motto. That data science is for everyone. Because if you are willing to put the hands on, and put some effort and that, it’s possible. I’m looking forward to going back to Brazil and starting to do something with all this information that, and all this knowledge that I’ve learned here.

You can only Google so much, but when you’ve got the access to the data scientists that are here, it just makes things so much easier. It seems like science fiction right now to a lot of people when you mention machine learning they think you’re talking about something that is unattainable and it’s really not the case. It’s just a matter of getting down and learning this stuff and then bringing it forth. Given time, I totally think I’m ready to continue to apply data science to my profession.

The atmosphere was great. There’s people from so many different industries and because the environment is so collaborative, everyone’s sharing their ideas. I was able to find some ideas from the medical industry, from the finance industry, which was helpful for helping me solve some problems in our e-commerce space.

It was a motivating, inspiring and intense teaching week. If the instructors weren’t so good, those five days could seem really short and not efficient. But the instructors were amazing, and the content is very, very good.
