We recently had the opportunity to write a guest post on bootcamp resource/review website SwitchUp, covering the skills needed to prepare for a data science bootcamp. 

Knowing that bootcamps present a particular type of learning experience (aka intense!), many interested individuals are left to wonder: 

  • - Am I qualified?
  • - If not, how do I get qualified?
  • - If yes, am I ready for this?

In the post, we discuss necessary hard skills like linear algebra and coding, but also focus on equally important soft skills like communication, grit, and passion. 

For more, read the post on SwitchUp.
