DataWeek Intro to Data Science & Machine Learning
Monday, September 30, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Demand for data scientists is growing quickly, but the path to a data science career can be long and winding. Today's great data scientists are miners and analysts who generate superhuman predictions using computer power.
At Zipfian Academy, we're working to make it easier to learn these skills. In this 1-day Bootcamp in partnership with DataWeek, we'll teach the fundamentals of analysis and machine learning. You'll work hands-on with instructors utilizing Python in a small-group environment.
The class runs from 10:00am - 4:30pm, with a break from 1:00 - 1:30pm.
In this 1-Day Bootcamp, you will:
- Gain an understanding of basic principles of data mining and analysis
- Get hands-on experience using machine learning tools in Python
- Work alongside instructors and other students with scikit-learn on classification, regression, and clustering of data
- Learn next steps to develop your skills as a data scientist plus resources to help you
- Connect with other aspiring data scientists and start participating in the growing data science community
Meet Your Teachers
Jonathan and Ryan are the founders of Zipfian Academy, a school training the next generation of Data Scientists.
Jonathan first discovered his love of all things data while studying Computer Science and Physics at UC Berkeley. In a former life, he worked for Alpine Data Labs developing distributed machine learning algorithms for predictive analytics on Hadoop.
Jonathan has always had a passion for sharing the things he has learned in the most creative ways he can. He has been a mentor at Dev Bootcamp, taught classes at General Assembly, and is an instructor at Hack Reactor, where he gets to combine his two favorite things: humans and code.
Ryan is fascinated by data in all its forms, binary and biological. Trained in Genetics and Genomics at UC Berkeley, he plumbed the depths of plant immunity at the Plant Gene Expression Center, building big data applications targeting next-generation sequencing technologies.
As a Sr. Systems Engineer at Nutanix, he worked on scale-out distributed computing solutions for virtualized environments. When not trying to pull beauty out of data, you can find Ryan hacking on 3D printers, DIY Bio, and open-source hardware.
This Introduction to Data Science & ML workshop is a Bootcamp offered in partnership with DataWeek 2013, San Francisco's largest conference on data + APIs. It's a week-long gathering of top execs, data scientists, engineers, and innovators featuring 80 exhibitors and 300 speakers.
