1- The prep work
Even though our course builds the foundations of data science and python from scratch, it’s best if you start with a little bit of preparation!
1. What is a programming language?
Learn what high level programming languages are, and why are they easier than low-level languages
2. So you wanna data science?
A basic set-up for starting your journey
3. Programmer vs Machine Learning Engineer - The Truth about Data Science
Data Science is a weird and wonderful crossover between engineering, science, and design. Lots of cool things are built with Machine Learning - from self-driving cars, to Google search ranking - but how cool is it to build ML systems? This talk explores the AI revolution and what is special about ML and working with Machine Learning. We'll touch upon open source academia, experimental innovation, AI ethics, to reveal what's special about working with Machine Learning.
4 . High-level overview of Python
Get comfy with Python, and get a high level overview of its capabilities!
Let’s go through the python essentials you need to comfortably deal with data. We’ll go through loops, lists, functions, and a bit of Object Oriented Programming.
Congratulations! You are now ready to start the program ✨
5 . Workstation setup
Make sure to go through workstation setup before the first live course.
The workstation setup should take anywhere from 15mn to 1hr depending on your coding/terminal experience (and how fast your internet connection is cause that conda download is chunky…).
