Cal NERDS - October's Intro to Python for Data Science Boot Camp for STEM College and Graduate Students
*Cal NERDS has created a weekend Python coding for Data Science boot camp for STEM college students and graduate students with no coding experience, Python 101 and Python 102.
*Each experience is three hours each and you can enroll in one or both of the boot camps. We have the capacity to register around 75 students for each virtual boot camp. We may need to use a waitlist if we go beyond 100 registered participants.
*Zoom links and download instructions will be sent on Friday before the workshop around Noon.
* More information about Cal NERDS can be found at
Saturday, October 23rd @ 10 am to 1 pm PST via zoom
[data science overview, short intro to python, Intro to Py stack]
*Beginner-friendly, no prior coding experience needed.
Sunday, October 24th @ 10 am to 1 pm PST via zoom
[review of Python and more Py stack]
*For those who have minor coding experience in any language, we suggest that you solve the Python 101 Notebook on your own and join us for Python 102.
*For those who completed Python 101 and want more exposure to coding, register for Python 102.
* Reach out to Kseniya and Anton at our Cal NERDS' email:
