As competition for data science jobs has increased, it’s become ever more important to build a strong skill set that will enable you to stand out from the crowd. ODSC’s Mini-Virtual Bootcamps are an excellent way to begin building new skills. Not only will you learn from some of the leading experts in data science and AI, but you’ll do so in a time and resource-efficient format.

We’re excited to offer a Mini-Virtual Bootcamp at ODSC Europe this September 17-19  after the success of our first virtual conference and Bootcamp, which as one attendee put it,

“Folks at ODSC making this year’s #ODSCVirtual event feel almost… not virtual.”

—Michael Thomas

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.

Live Training: July 29th: Deep Learning (with TensorFlow 2 and PyTorch)

By purchasing a Bootcamp ticket, you will also get access to a live training session with Dr. Jon Krohn on July 29. In Jon’s training session, you will be able to understand the essential theory of artificial neural networks, including which deep learning approach is most appropriate for solving a given problem. By the end of the day, participants will also be able to interpret the output of deep learning models to troubleshoot and improve results.

Catch-up Training

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.

Virtual Hackathon:

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.

Mini-Virtual Bootcamp:

By September, 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 Live Training Session 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 Europe is the perfect opportunity for you to build your skills, and gain valuable experience, on your path to becoming a better data scientist. Furthermore, with the Pre-Bootcamp Live Training Session and the participation in the Virtual Hackathon included in the price of your pass, you’ll be able to start your journey as early as July.
