As part of its vision to make Nigeria the data science outsourcing hub for Africa before 2019 and create one million new jobs in the next 10 years, Data Science Nigeria (DSN) will be holding its first bootcamp between January 20 and 22 at Lagos State.
The bootcamp will address varying capacity gaps in data science for beginners, intermediate and experts with specific focus on Machine learning, R statistics and programming/Python for advanced data analytics. It will run as a regimented learning session and will include virtual classes with data scientists, self-paced online certificated courses and face-to-face session by local experts in Machine learning, Statistics, Python and R. Python Nigeria, a user-group that promotes Python computer programming language in Nigeria will facilitate some of the practical hands-on session on Python programming.
The free residential bootcamp comes with an intensive requirement. All the would-be participants are expected to complete a 12-hour course on IBM BigDataUniversity.com and submit their completion certificates to secure a placement. It is supported by Arise & OneFi who are also providing internship opportunities for the best participants at the intensive training camp.
Interested participants can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to secure a space.
