Machine learning is a wide field that comprises many different specializations. As you advance in your data science career, and make decisions on which path to take, it can be hard to know which subject, industry, or applications you might want to pursue. ODSC’s Mini Machine Learning Bootcamp offers an excellent opportunity to explore your options without investing a ton of time or money. Check out some of the benefits of a mini machine learning bootcamp.

1. Costs:

When you are not sure which path you want to take with your career, the cost of a traditional, months-long bootcamp, or advanced degree can feel like too much of an investment. ODSC’s mini-bootcamp, on the other hand, is much more affordable. If you find out the specialization you chose to try is not right for you, you won’t feel like you’ve wasted your investment. 

2. Breadth:

Held as part of the largest applied data science conferences, ODSC’s mini-bootcamp gives you access to an incredible breadth of content on machine learning, data visualization, NLP, and much more. You’ll have access to 300+ hours of talks, training sessions, and workshops from some of the best and brightest minds in the field. Plus, you’ll have post-conference, on-demand access to session recordings so you can catch anything you might have missed during the conference itself.

3. Hands-On, Real-World Experience:

All of ODSC’s training sessions are hands-on, and many of them feature use cases and examples from the real world. This focus on practical applications gives you an opportunity to see how you might utilize these skills in the course of your career, and if this is a career path that you truly wish to follow. 

4. Significant Return for Minimum Time Investment:

At just 3 days, ODSC’s mini-bootcamp offers a significant return for minimum time investment. 

Over those three days, you can take a deep dive into a specialty or subject you have been thinking about pursuing, giving you the opportunity to see if it is, in fact, a good fit for you. If it’s not, you have gained valuable insight without wasting unnecessary time. 

5. Discover Your Path with a Machine Learning Bootcamp

Alternatively to taking a deep dive into a single subject, you can explore a number of different ones. If you haven’t yet decided on a specialty or career path, dipping your toe into a diversity of subjects can help you narrow down your field of interest, or perhaps even discover the one you wish to pursue. 


Whether you are just starting your machine learning career, or looking to make a career change, ODSC’s mini-bootcamp can help you find the right path for you and build the skills you need to succeed in it.
