From Archaeological Digs to Mining Data: Jenny Kreiger’s Story
After completing a doctorate in classical art and archaeology, Jenny traded in her dig shovel for a laptop and enrolled in Flatiron School’s Data Science course. Now, she’s pursuing her true passion for discovering the answers that are unearthed in data.
When you join Flatiron School, you join a community of like-minded students and industry professionals invested in your education. Attend an event to discuss the course, the school, and the industry as a whole.
On-campus programs are held full-time and you are expected to be on campus for each day of class. The Flex and Live program uses the same curriculum, but gives you the added flexibility of studying from home.
Data science bootcamps offer a lot of opportunity for anyone looking to break into data science. Though different bootcamps and courses vary, most of them have one goal: to help you learn the skills you need to become a professional data scientist.
Your responsibility is to find a course that teaches you the right skills in a style that aligns with your learning style. That’s why, at Flatiron School, we offer courses full-time and part-time, on-campus and online.
If you have a clear vision into your career ambitions, find a course that teaches you the math skills & languages and other data science skills that align with those ambitions. If you do your research well and attend the right place that works for you, then attending a bootcamp is definitely the right choice.
Basically, if you want to become a data scientist, then good bootcamps — and especially Flatiron School — are a good choice for you.
Each data science bootcamp varies — they teach you different skills, languages, disciplines, all in different ways and styles — but generally the term “data science bootcamp” means an accelerated learning program that helps students learn the skills they need to become data scientists.
If you consider “working” to mean that a bootcamp helps you land a new data science job and career, there is a lot of proof that our courses work.
But if you want to just dabble in some data analytics but aren’t looking to switch into a data career, then perhaps a data science bootcamp isn’t the right option for you. Bootcamps take a lot of commitment, time, and discipline to excel at — it’s the type of commitment that would make sense for someone who wants to start a new career, but probably not for someone who’s just interested in learning a couple of new skills or hobbies.
But if you’re looking to start a career in data science, then good data science bootcamps are a good and efficient route to pursue that ambition.
