Introducing Our New Bootcamp Prep Course: Python for Beginners
By Metis • June 24, 2020
We know the importance of personal and professional development, especially when roles and careers are continuously evolving. That’s why our team consistently looks for ways to deliver new, relevant, and exciting courses that our students can use to propel them forward on their data science journeys.
It’s the ideal course for those interested in applying to our Data Science Bootcamp but who have little to no prior experience (or need a refresher) with fundamental Python programming. The only prerequisite is to have Python installed.
During this 3-week course, we’ll cover:
- Introduction to programming in Python
- Common basic data types and their properties
- Logical operations, loops, functions, and more
Our first Python for Beginners course starts Monday, July 27th at 6:30 PM ET, taught by Alison Cossette, Director of Data Science in Research and Development at the NPD Group. Alison is a veteran instructor of our Beginner Python and Math for Data Science course and one of our Data Science Bootcamp graduates!

During a recent webinar with Course Report, Metis Sr. Data Scientist Kimberly Fessel discusses how Python is used for data science, how much Python you should know before starting a data science bootcamp, and more. Watch it here.
When our Data Scientists aren't teaching the intensive 12-week bootcamps or corporate training courses, they're working on a variety of other projects. This monthly blog series tracks and discusses some of their recent activities and accomplishments.
We're proud to be included on Course Report's 21 Best Data Science Bootcamps of 2020 list! To create the list, their team considered both online and in-person bootcamps that teach immersive data science and/or data analytics, looking at alumni reviews, curriculum, and quality of instruction to determine who made the cut.
