To stay ahead of the curve in today’s competitive business environment, it’s essential to keep learning and building new skills. Bootcamps are a great way to do just that. A traditional bootcamp, however, can be both time and resource-intensive. ODSC’s Mini-Virtual Bootcamp, on the other hand, not only enables you to increase your skillset with sessions taught by some of the best and brightest in data science, but does so in just 3 or 4 days, allowing you to resume your work quickly.

Additionally, ODSC West Mini-Virtual Bootcamp’s unique structure gets you started on training and upskilling right away with Pre-Bootcamp on-demand training, Pre-Bootcamp live training, and a Pre-Bootcamp Hackathon.

Pre-Bootcamp On-Demand Training:

Start your training at your convenience with the Pre-Bootcamp On-Demand Training Sessions. Covering the topics that you’ll need to get the most out of your bootcamp experience, such as programming with Python, statistics, and SQL, these expert-led courses will give you a firm foundation in some of the pillars in data science.

Pre-Bootcamp Live Training Session:

4-Day Bootcamp pass holders can continue down the learning path with a Pre-Bootcamp Live Training session during the summer. This live session, led by one of our acclaimed instructors will provide you with skills and knowledge that you can use during the Virtual Hackathon and the Mini Bootcamp itself.

Virtual Hackathon:

Participate in the Virtual Hackathon in August, exact dates to be announced, to apply the skills gained during the Pre-Bootcamp Live and On-Demand Training Sessions, 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.

Mini-Virtual Bootcamp:

By October, you’ll be ready to take advantage of all the Mini-Bootcamp has to offer, whether that be training sessions and workshops or networking opportunities. In addition to the Pre-Bootcamp On-Demand and Live training sessions and the Virtual Hackathon, a Bootcamp pass gives you access to:

  • 6 sessions covering data science fundamentals
  • 50+ training sessions, workshops, and talks
  • The Virtual AI Expo and Demo Talks
  • Virtual Career Lab & Expo

Virtual Career Lab and Expo

Over the course of the summer and into the Mini-Virtual Bootcamp itself, you’ll learn valuable, in-demand skills that will help you to stand out when looking for a new job. By attending the Virtual Career Lab and Expo, you’ll be able to highlight your new skills, talk to prospective employers, and hear advice on how you can use these new skills to improve your resume and portfolio.

The Mini-Virtual Bootcamp at ODSC West is the perfect opportunity for you to build your skills, and gain valuable experience, on your path to becoming a better data scientist.
