Who can apply to the bletchley bootcamp?
Everyone is welcome to apply to the bletchley bootcamp. Both the Python for Data Science and Machine Learning bootcamps are open to all. However, as there is mandatory attendance, preference may be given to those in the Rotterdam area.
Can I just enroll into the Bletchley Bootcamp?
No, you first have to pass the Python Entrance Exam.
If you don’t feel sufficiently prepared to take the exam directly, you can take the Python for Data Science course for free.
How many classes per week will there be? When are these held?
There will be 1 hackathon session per week, which is obligatory and takes 2.5 hours. This will likely be held every Monday evening at 18:30 – 21:00. Next to that there will be office hours on Wednesday, this is a voluntary session where you can ask questions.
Am I allowed to miss one or more lectures? if yes, how many?
To graduate you are only allowed to skip 1 hackathon session and should message your team instructor beforehand if you can’t make it to the session.
Sure I’m going to learn a lot of interesting stuff, but will it be practical knowledge that I will be able to use in a future job or is it simply great base for learning?
Everything you will learn is highly applicable to anyone interested in data analytics. So yes, it is practical knowledge. After the course however, you will find that there is a lot more to learn. The field of deep learning is a dynamic and rapidly changing field with dozens of academic papers coming out each week; you will not be bored of old information.
Do I need to enroll into both courses?
No, there are no prerequisites for Python for Data Science, however if you want take the Bletchley Bootcamp course, than you have to participate in the Python for Data Science course or have taken the Python for Data Science exam.
How time intensive are those two weeks going to be?
In terms of expected workload, there will be 6 sessions, including the exam (so actually 5 sessions) in 2 weeks. The sessions will be 2 hours per session. On top of that we expect you to finish the challenges at home. So 6 + 10 ~ 15 hours per week.
