Metis Online Training, Explore Data Science, Now Live
By Emily Wilson • January 21, 2016
Explore Data Science, our new self-paced online training that introduces common data science theory and techniques to help programmers, mathematicians, and other technical professionals expand their data science expertise, is now live. Originally created by Booz Allen Hamilton for its team of nearly 600 data science professionals, Explore Data Science is now available exclusively from Metis.
Explore Data Science is an interactive learning experience in which learners advance from one module to another throughout the overall 40-hour exploration. For $99 for two months' access, participants are actively engaged with real datasets and interactive tasks as they earn points, awards, and badges for completing missions.
"Metis saw the potential in giving Explore Data Science a broader platform, alongside the company's arsenal of high-quality data science offerings," said Mark Jacobsohn, Senior Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton. "We're excited that the result pairs exceptional educational experience with our unparalleled data science expertise to make this program even more accessible to anyone interested in this field."
For the 4th year in a row, we've been selected to SwitchUp's annual Best Data Science Bootcamps list. Based on alumni ratings and reviews, the credit for this accomplishment goes to our team, our instructors, and most of all, to our students and graduates, who work hard each and every cohort and produce amazing work.
Earlier this week, we wrote about current Metis student Jeff Kao, whose blog post about his ongoing bootcamp final project went viral. We caught up with him to ask about the experience, why he chose this project, and more.
