Back by popular demand, Metis NYC will be hosting One Day at Bootcamp to give you a chance to see what the experience is really like! Youll receive free, interactive training in beginner-level Python from Senior Data Scientist at Metis, Vinny Senguttuvan.

The curriculum is designed for those with zero prior exposure to Python & the data science stack for Python.

The first 1.5 hours will introduce the basics of Python, focusing on the portions of Python that are most essential to using the language in a practical way.

After lunch, we'll reconvene & focus on hands-on learning by working on various exercises with Python. Finally, youll build a small project that works with text data, loading files, cleaning strings, etc. to find what words are the most common in a document.
