want to take their projects. Will students have pre-work once they get admitted and how many hours are you expecting that to take? Ive had two separate roles since working at BuzzFeed. But like most things, you get what you put in, and of course ymmv. They just need to have that reconciliation. If youre looking to break into data science, or just trying to refresh and hone the skills you already have, Course Report has you covered. Deepak: I am currently a Business Intelligence Engineer at Facebook. There are also other assignments: challenges (like homework that will help you with your assignments) every week, a blog and blog posts (and blog posting culture) every now and then, and two personal investigations during the bootcamp. Which instructors/mentors were especially helpful to you?
Emily : At first when they were telling me about the project I was a little bit scared. So, its basically a free, pre-bootcamp (warm-up) training. In a bootcamp, you really bond with your peers. Have you had to think about working the outcomes into the curriculum like doing job placement, interview practice and stuff like that or are you letting Metis handle the brunt of that? This for us is someone that is really good a Python, has at least a little bit of exposure to working in a Hadoop framework, and someone that is interested in functional languages. Whatever you choose, Metis staff are going to be there to help you through. One thing our students have in common is their interest in technical skills and their statistical thinking. But there are other students who didnt have that experience and might have benefited by learning more Python before the class. Did you have to do a coding challenge in a certain language? Sometimes it felt like it was a lot to take in while learning so many things, but it was really supportive. For example, the data might be saying one thing, but if you have some business context youll realize the data could be indicating a larger problem.
