Get introduced to Data Science using Python with a hands-on, in-person 5-day bootcamp with expert instructor Ted Petrou.
All in-person bootcamps have been postponed for the rest of 2020 due to COVID-19. Stay safe!
Get a comprehensive introduction to data science 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 Data Analysis 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.
You will not be able to master all the fundamentals of data science in any short course. However, upon completion of this course, you will be given a direct path towards mastering these fundamentals. Completing this path will earn you a certificate of completion.
The Intro to Data Science Bootcamp targets those who have little data science experience, but do understand the fundamentals of programming in Python. If you do not feel comfortable with basic Python, then this course is not for you. Consider taking Exercise Python 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. During this time, you can code right along with Ted, exploring how the commands work, and ask questions.
During student exercises, you will be writing Python code to solve data analysis 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 the All Access Pass which grants you lifetime access to all current and future books and non-live online courses. Currently, this includes the following courses containing 1,000 pages of material, 500 exercises, and 20 hours of video.
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. His blog posts have totaled 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 and data science courses. 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 course offered on this page is only available in-person.
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.
