Please don't waste your money on a 5-day class that costs $3000. Even if they give you a "certification", it will be completely worthless.
If you are serious about making a transition, check out our bootcamp. It is the first online data science bootcamp for working professionals (www.k2datascience.com).
For reference, the other in-person bootcamps are a 12 week full time commitment and cost over $15,000.
Data Science Dojo here... Since we are the only 5-day bootcamp for $3000 out there, it is safe to assume that the question is directed at us.
No. While we have been offering the bootcamp globally (9 countries and counting), we do not plan to offer the bootcamp in the Bay Area in near future. In US we regularly offer bootcamps in Seattle, Chicago, Washington DC and Austin. New York and Bay Area have been offered in the past but no bootcamps are planned in near future.
Outside of the US, Toronto, Amsterdam, Singapore, Paris and Barcelona are offered frequently. We plan to go to Sydney and Dubai in the next three months.
Yes. You will be getting a certificate of completion at the end of the bootcamp. The market value of the certificate is going to be determined by how much effort and energy you put in getting ready for the bootcamp, your dedication during the bootcamp and the kind of projects you pursue after the bootcamp is over. Data Science is a hands-on skill. You can only get better by practicing.
Having said this, our alumni think we are absolutely awesome :) Check out verified testimonials including video interviews here: http://datasciencedojo.com/bootcamp/testimonials
We have literally turned the data science education paradigm upside down. While other bootcamps tell you that you will 'become a data scientist', we advocate just learning and applying the data science and data engineering skills in your current role and not worry about a change in career.
@TyShaikh As of today, we have trained more than 2000 attendees from over 230 companies. Our alumni are our biggest champions, please feel free to reach out anyone on our alumni page and see what they have to say about us: http://datasciencedojo.com/bootcamp/alumni We really hope you will change your mind :)
