As our current cohort of bootcamp students finishes up week three, each has already begun one-on-one meetings with the Career Services team to start planning their career paths together. They're also anticipating the start of the Metis in-class speaker series, which began this week with analysts and data scientists from Priceline and White Ops, to be followed in the coming weeks by data scientists from the United Nations, Paperless Post, untapt, CartoDB, and the genius who mined Spotify data to determine that "No Diggity" is, in fact, a timeless classic. Meanwhile, we're busy planning Meetup events in New York City and San Francisco that will be open to all -- and currently have open houses scheduled in both Metis locations. You're invited to come meet the Senior Data Scientists who teach our bootcamps and to learn about the Metis student experience from our staff and alumni.
Metis New York City Open House Wednesday, Nov. 4, 6:30 - 8:00pm RSVP
Metis San Francisco Open House Thursday, Nov. 12, 6:30 - 8:00pm RSVP
Last week, we hosted our first-ever Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session with Metis Bootcamp alum Bryan Bumgardner at the helm. For one full hour, Bryan answered any question that came his way via the Reddit platform.
During the Metis bootcamp, we place a strong focus on community. In this piece, San Francisco Program Manager Stephany Bittar writes about how that foundation is built and how it grows through daily collaboration, outings in downtown SF, ping pong tournaments, and much more.
