Get started with machine learning using Python with a hands-on, in-person course with expert instructor Ted Petrou. Bootcamps range in duration between one and five days.
Get a comprehensive introduction to machine learning using Python with engaging live coding, practical exercises, and an expert instructor. Walk away with a solid grasp of the fundamentals and a direct path towards mastery.
Ted Petrou teaches all classes and has over 1,000 hours of live, in-person instruction experience. He is the author of numerous books including Master Machine Learning with Python and is the creator of the libraries Dexplo and Dexplot. Ted is constantly improving and upgrading the material to ensure it is of the highest quality.
Watching others code gives the false impression of learning. In reality, learning is demonstrated when you complete tasks yourself. During class, you will be given ample time to complete exercises and projects. Ted is very dedicated during this time to ensure students get the help they need.
Mastering the fundamentals of machine learning is not possible in such a short course. However, upon completion, you will be given a direct path towards continuing your education. Completing this path will earn you a certificate of completion.
The following description is for a full five-day course. Shorter duration bootcamps cover portions of material from different days. Visit their page to see the exact course description.
The Intro to Machine Learning Bootcamp targets those who have little to no machine learning experience, but do understand the fundamentals of programming in Python. If you do not feel comfortable with the basics of Python, then this course is not for you. Consider taking the Intro to Python Bootcamp first which will give you all the skills needed to prepare for this course.
Class time is divided between live coding sessions delivered by Ted and hands-on practice exercises and projects that you complete. During the live coding, you are provided an outline of the topics that Ted will cover as a Jupyter Notebook allowing you to code right along with him, exploring how the commands work, and ask questions.
During student exercises, you will be writing Python code to solve machine learning problems. Ted is always available to provide help directly at your seat and is constantly seeking out students who may be in need of extra support.
Everyone who registers gets a digital copy of the class notes which contain a PDF and many Jupyter Notebooks with detailed explanations of the material. There is more material available than what is possible to be covered in class. You will have permanent access to this material.
This course is taught by Ted Petrou, an expert at Python, data exploration and machine learning. Ted is the author of the highly rated text Pandas Cookbook. Ted has taught hundreds of students Python and data science during in-person classroom settings. He sees first hand exactly where students struggle and continually upgrades his material to minimize these struggles by providing a simple and direct path forward.
Ted is one of the foremost authorities on using the pandas library to do data analysis with his blog posts totaling well over 1 million views. He is also a prolific contributor on Stack Overflow having answered over 400 questions. He is an enthusiastic instructor and dedicates his time to helping students at their desk during exercises to ensure understanding.
Ted holds a master's degree in statistics from Rice University and is the author of Exercise Python, Master Data Analysis with Python, and Master Machine Learning with Python.
Part of the intrigue of an in-person class is the social interaction and camaraderie formed between yourself and the other students. This fellowship is mainly absent when taking an online class or watching a recorded video. Many friendships and potential career opportunities are formed between the students that attend Ted's classes.
And if you are looking for proof, just take a look at the immense joy radiating from the faces of the students in the picture to the left.

If you have a more specific question, or just want to chat with Ted, click the chatbox in the corner and he'll answer your question as soon as he can.
Ted began programming 22 years ago by building games on his Texas Instruments graphing calculator and has been programming ever since.
He has taught over 1,000 hours of live in-person python, data science, and machine learning. He is constantly striving to learn more, refine his material, and produce the absolute best possible class each time he teaches.
Ted's biggest accomplishments in Python have been authoring the Dexplo and Dexplot libraries that are meant as alternatives to pandas and seaborn. Ted has answered over 400 questions on Stack Overflow.
Yes, you can. Just send me a message by clicking the chatbox below and I'll connect you to a former student who can answer some of your questions. If you prefer, you can also email me directly at [email protected]
There are plans to make a similar course available online for those that want to learn from the comfort of their own home. The current course offered on this page is only available as an in-person class.
No, not at this time. The course is reasonably priced and the plan is to raise prices once there is more visibility. Once prices are raised closer to the market average, discounts will be given to students or unemployed.
