What will participants need to know or do before starting this course?
The course assumes that students do not know Python or machine learning, but that they do have some familiarity with basic programming concepts or languages. Therefore, experience in Python or Machine Learning is not required but will help.
Why should you come to in-person training instead of online?
It allows you to learn from an experienced trainer directly and raise your questions right away also the trainer will be up to the questions on Github after the Bootcamp.
Which level is the Bootcamp?
