In-Person Training
Hands-on data science with Python

Zachary Glassman (The Data Incubator)
Monday, March 5 & Tuesday, March 6, 9:00am - 5:00pm
Data science and machine learning
Location: Willow Glen (1&2), Marriott

Participants should plan to attend both days of this 2-day training course. Platinum and Training passes do not include access to tutorials on Tuesday.

Zachary Glassman demonstrates how to build intelligent business applications using machine learning, taking you through each step in developing a machine learning pipeline, from prototyping to production. You'll explore data cleaning, feature engineering, model building and evaluation, and deployment and extend your knowledge by building two applications from real-world datasets.

What you'll learn, and how you can apply it

Hi Robert,
During the course you will be using servers that we have provisioned for you. All you need is a laptop with a web browser installed!

Is there any software that we need to install for this class? Will you be doing this on Linux?

It would also be useful to have some familiarity with libraries like pandas

Hi Everyone,
A good understanding of basic python will be necessary. It would also be useful to have some familiarity with libraries like pandas and numpy.

Hi Robert,
How much experience in Python is needed for this class?
