    You already know how to write python code, you can write functions, for loops and if else statements. You know how to use python libraries.

  • 📈 Data Science Fundamentals

    You know what supervised and unsupervised learning is. You understand when a problem requires a classification model vs a regression model. 

  • 🕵🏾‍♀️ Problem-solving skills

    You enjoy solving difficult problems. When you don't know something, you know how to use the internet to research the issue and find solutions or tips to help you create a solution.

  • 🕰 Discipline

    The data science learning journey is very difficult. In order to make significant progress and take advantage of the program, you need to commit to working at least 10 hours per week.

Why Join The Data Jedi Academy?

  • 💼 Build a compelling Portfolio

    We have created and curated a set of unique and challenging projects for you to take on. These projects have been designed with a strong focus on making them Enterprise-ready.

  • ♽ Work across the Data Science project lifecycle

    You will not only build ML models and do analysis but you will also have to deploy your models on a cloud server, write unit tests and create interactive web apps.

  • ✅ Receive critical feedback on your work

    Feedback is critical to the learning process so, after the completion of each project, each team will get a detailed note with feedback on their code, presentation and analysis technique.

  • ✍🏾 Learn how to craft a strong CV

    Having a strong CV is crucial to getting past the initial stage and to the interview stage. With the help of recruiters and Data Science managers, we will learn what makes a strong CV.

  • 🤝 Learn to work in a Data Science team

    Using collaboration tools like Slack, Git and a Data Science focused agile framework, you will learn how professional Data Science teams work together.

  • 🗣 Develop your communication skills

    Communicating the results of your model or analysis to non-technical people is a critical skill. After each project, you will get the chance to present to a wide audience.
