Event description
This two-day fundamentals program will give you a comprehensive overview of applied data science.

About this Event

This program is hands-on and use-case driven by design, so you will learn the concepts of data collection, data wrangling, and predictive modeling as well as how to build an end-to-end data science project.

Offered virtually, you'll spend the mornings in a live session with the instructor and afternoons doing lab work in groups with access to online teaching assistants. There will be some pre-work before the live session to get you up to speed on key concepts and orient you to the online learning environment. You'll wrap up with an online quiz before receiving a certificate.

What you’ll learn:

  • Common Data Science use cases.
  • Data science toolbox.
  • Data collection and exploration.
  • The lifecycle of an end-to-end data science project.
  • Basic data manipulation using Python.
  • Classification models for sentiment analysis.
  • Information visualization using an open source dashboard tool.
  • An introduction to machine learning.
  • Model evaluation, interpretation and presentation.

Who is it for?

This program is best for anyone interested in exploring the fundamentals of data science.

As we adapt to a new normal, please be advised that our Communitech virtual sessions will be recorded for a) use by the Communitech Academy team to review virtual delivery procedures in support of our commitment to provide an outstanding program experience, and b) for limited-time review by program participants when extenuating circumstances prevent a participant from attending a session.
