“Folks at ODSC making this year’s #ODSCVirtual event feel almost… not virtual.”
ODSC Europe’ Mini-Virtual Bootcamp will be 3 or 4 days and will help you develop the skills and discover the tools you need to become a better data scientist with courses that span the Fundamentals of Python and Statistics to intermediate level courses on Reinforcement Learning, NLP, Data Visualization, and more.
For the first time, as part of Europe’s Mini-Virtual Bootcamp, we’re introducing both a pre-bootcamp training session and a Hackathon.
Pre-Bootcamp Live Training Session:
The Pre-Bootcamp Live Training session will take place this June, the exact days of which will be announced shortly. These sessions will enable you to get started on your learning path early, and will help you prepare to both participate in the Hackathon and attend the bootcamp in September. You’ll learn about the fundamentals of Python Programming and Data Science domain essentials from our renowned speakers and instructors. We’ll be updating our website with information as it comes in, so be sure to check back frequently.
Can’t make the live Pre-Bootcamp Training Session? No worries, when you purchase your ticket we will make the pre-conference training session available on-demand.
Participate in the Virtual Hackathon in August, exact dates to be announced, to apply the skills gained during the Pre-Bootcamp Live Training Session and prepare for some of the more advanced topics offered during the Mini-Bootcamp. During the Virtual Hackathon, you’ll be asked to create a compelling notebook by yourself, or as part of a team, with an analysis of one of the provided datasets. These datasets will be focused on causes that are important and relevant to today’s world.
The first two winning teams will receive a donation to a charity or non-profit of their choice as well as full complimentary access to the entire bootcamp and on-demand content library.
The second two winning teams will receive one full-day complimentary training pass to attend sessions of their choice.
