Early App Deadline is Today for SF, Seattle, & Chicago Winter Bootcamp! Apply Now

Speaker Series

Throughout each 12-week Data Science Bootcamp, we schedule 8-10 in-class industry speakers. The goal is to expose students to the wide variety of ways in which data science is practiced across many fields of focus, while also providing them with valuable networking opportunities. A few of these events are open to the public, but most are private, happening within the classroom during class hours.
