Potentially Asked Questions

Here are some questions you probably would have.

What if I miss a day because I’m busy?

  • Not an issue! We designed the Bootcamp, understanding that you are a busy working person and it’s only natural to have to miss out on a day – or two. You’ll be able to catch up. 

Is the Bootcamp or cert accredited?

  • Proudly, no. Accreditation makes sense for certain types of education, but that is not what makes great data professionals.

    We’ll happily provide completion certificates upon the end. But know this.

    Instead of having a paper to ‘prove’ you know something, how about having 4 completed data science projects to show for?

Do I need prior tech or coding knowledge?

  • None. The Bootcamp doesn’t require prerequisites or prior knowledge. Bring your curiosity and desire to grow, and that’s enough.

Why can’t I just learn online myself?

  • You can. However, it’s faster and more efficient to learn data science with someone to guide you. And while most online courses are ‘self-paced’, we designed this Bootcamp to be ‘instructor-led-paced’, to keep you accountable.

Is there an exam?

  • No. We’re beginning to drop examinations because we believe ‘test to grade’ is ruining education, as it limits discovery and incentivizes students to ask questions like, “Will this be on the test?”

How long is the bootcamp?

  • The Bootcamp is designed for 30 days. This would translate into more than 60+ hours of learning and work.

    But we’re really vouching for life-long learning. Often times we see real learning happening after a course, where our students continue to self-discover and interact with their peers.
