On Thursday, November 1st, three members of the Metis team will present at the Open Data Science Conference/Accelerate AI in San Francisco. Read about their talks, which cover a range of topics like text analytics, practical data science, and using PyTorch for deep learning.
Seattle is the fastest-growing big city in the United States and it’s also become the second strongest tech market in the country. Along with major players like Amazon and Microsoft, there’s a significant mid-sized and startup community feeding into the city’s contagious energy – and many of these companies need data scientists! To help fill those roles, we opened our Seattle campus in September 2017 with the plan to harness and guide some of the city’s tech talent toward data science specifically. Here are 6 things you should know about our bootcamp in Seattle.
Bootcamp grad Dan Taber is certainly no stranger to data. Prior to landing his current role, he’d already been working with data for more than 15 years in various academic roles spanning science, technology, and policy. But his hard skills had fallen out of date. Enter the bootcamp as a way to bridge the gap between his academic background and industry ambitions.
Read about two recent final projects created by graduates of our data science bootcamp . See what's possible to create in just 12 weeks, including a way to predict which pitches the Cubs should throw to the Cardinals, and how to predict the mode of a hit single on the Billboard charts.
Recent bootcamp graduate Gavin King grew up in Arizona, got a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Wyoming, and now lives and works in Seattle, where they’ve found a home in the bustling data science community as a Data Scientist at Zulily, a growing e-commerce company. Read about their journey to the job and how Metis career support helped along the way.
Over the past decade, Metis Sr. Data Scientist Jonathan Balaban has helped more than 100 students, colleagues, and friends start new careers and find fulfilling jobs. In this post, he provides 7 simple but powerful keys that can help you make a great first impression and accelerate your professional development.
Yes, SQL is an old language developed in the 70’s. But many great and lasting technological advances came about in that same decade. For this post, we sat down with Jonathan Balaban, a Metis Sr. Data Scientist who helped develop our Live Online SQL Fundamentals part-time course. He discusses how he and others on the team came to develop this course based on bootcamp graduate feedback, why SQL is important to know, and why it’s likely to continue standing the test of time.
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 so many.
