Three Years Running! Metis Earns SwitchUp's Best Bootcamp Award
By Metis • September 24, 2018
In what's a true pleasure and honor, we're proud to announce that we've been named Best Data Science Bootcamp by SwitchUp for the third year in a row! The credit for this accomplishment (which is based on alumni reviews, ratings, and course data populated on SwitchUp throughout the year) can be spread around to many, including our in-office team, our instructors, and of course, our students and graduates, who work incredibly hard each and every cohort to learn difficult material and create projects that amaze us time and time again.
Check out our page on SwitchUp to read some of what these graduates have to say. Below are a few recent highlights:
"I looked at other bootcamps and did an online course with another company, but I’m glad I chose Metis. The instructors and other students are incredibly smart. It can be intimating but you know you’re getting the best. I feel prepared to take on a new career."
"Metis was instrumental in equipping me with all of the industry-relevant skills in a very short amount of time. "
"Metis was amazing. The instructors set the tone for excitement, grit, intelligence, and success. The projects were invaluable experiences for learning so many data science skills and for using as examples of work in interviews/applications. The curriculum is as close toreal-world experience as a bootcamp can get. A+ to Metis."
"I enjoyed my experience at Metis immensely. I believe the quality of instruction from instructors was high, the dedication from classmates to learning was fierce, and the support in the job hunt has been helpful."
Data scientists are often described as hybrids: part statistician, part computer scientist; part analyst, part strategist. But while we focus on the myriad technical skills that a data scientist should possess, we often overlook one of the foundational skills (without which the whole edifice falls apart): communication skills. In this post, read three tips for improving your professional communication skills.
There’s no shortage of discussion in the data science community about WHERE to best learn data science. However, there’s precious little discussion of a topic that’s arguably more important: HOW to learn data science. In this guest post from Dataquest, read about the 3 crucial things you need to do no matter where you're learning.
This post from Metis Sr. Data Scientist Kimberly Fessell covers the basics of object detection: what it is, various approaches to it, the measurements used to judge its results, along with a few important considerations of modern object detection.
