ORGANISATIONS THAT MAKE

OUR ACADEMIES POSSIBLE

With very little knowledge on the field but with a lot of curiosity I've applied to this academy. And what a great choice I made! Since me and my colleagues were already familiar with Python, it took us only two days of lessons with these committed monitors team (They are incredible ) to be able to make our first classifier.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Data Science Starters Academy is a series of events dedicated to helping people become entry-level data scientists, by teaching introductory material.

It's a hybrid way of learning that doesn't interfere with your day job. 

We start with 2 intensive days of on-site learning and then we get together once a month for a hackathon. In between hackathons you're provided materials to study in your own time, with support from top level mentors on slack.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
