    Overall:
    I will recommend this bootcamp to anyone who is eager to learn and have great passion towards data science. Before I attended the bootcamp, I received my master degree in marketing from school. I did not have a lot of math and coding background back then. With my passion towards data science, I decided to take a deep dive and applied for the NYCDSA’s 12 weeks bootcamp. Due to my limited coding background, they did not accept me at the beginning, instead, they provided one month prep course for me to get prepared for the bootcamp. I attended the September cohort after the prep course. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. With the extensive knowledge and training, and great support in job assistance, I am able to land my dream job in 2 months after bootcamp.
    Curriculum:
    The curriculum is very well designed. I did a lot of research before I applied for this bootcamp. NYCDSA is the only program that covered data science in both R and python, big data processing tools such as Hadoop, Spark at once. I am really glad that I started my journey in data science with them, so my foundation in data science is much stronger now than I was when taking online classes by myself before. The curriculum will also help you to develop a portfolio for job hunting, however, you are the one who decides how much effort you want to put in and how far you want to go.
    Instructors:
    The instructors and TAs are the best part of the bootcamp. You will never receive this kind of learning experience through online courses. They are all very knowledgeable in computer science, statistics, and machine learning. They are so passionate, and so willing to help each student. There were so many times that they stayed after 7pm, came in during weekends, answered slacks questions at 11pm to provide extra helps. They are far more than just instructors and TAs, but also supportive friends after I finished the program.
    Job assistance:
    I got hired by a major ad agency as a data scientist within two months of completing the bootcamp.
    The hiring team put the best effort to help their students. They hosted awesome hiring partners event, which the students got to make connections and talk to some great companies, such as IBM, citi bank, Mindshare, Publicis and so on. During my job hunting process, Vivian tried her best to provide any connections with the companies that I really wanted to get in. I also received a lot of helps and mentorship from Chris. The way he helped me to prepare for net-working and interviews are very strategic, systematic, and effective. I learned so much and I won’t get this far without him. You can learn all the hard skills anywhere else, but this kind of support and mentorship is hard to find even if you have a lot of money.
    They provide as many helps as they can, but you have to be proactive and eager to learn to take everything in!

    The decision to enroll in this Bootcamp was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I had high expectations coming into the program, mostly due to the reviews I’ve read, yet the 12 weeks I spent at the Academy exceeded those expectations. The coursework is challenging enough to challenge those with a Ph.D., while the instructor’s and TA’s help out to the extent that even those with a Bachelor’s will find it manageable.

    The program covers a wide array of topics, combining theory and application to give you a well-rounded understanding of the material. Students are encouraged to learn by doing, and home-works are given out 2-3  times a week, with deadlines not always easy to meet. But given how much the instructors offer to help, students usually always find a way.

    The whole team goes above and beyond to help out not only with teaching you data science, but also with things like interview readiness, job placement, and helping you build a great portfolio.

    You are surrounded with like-minded people for 12 weeks, forming great friendships learning from each other. You are tutored and lectured by industry professionals who go out of their way to make sure you understand the material. You are exposed to cutting edge software, advanced machine learning algorithms, and industry best practices. You are helped with building a portfolio, creating a great resume and how to pitch your work to employers.

    I’m truly happy I did this program, and so will you.

    Hiring a Data Scientist in NYC is a full-time job on its own. Your inbox may be exploding with hundreds of applications, yet it is extremely challenging to find the right candidates. While I was in the middle of sorting through resumes I was invited to a Data Science Academy happy hour by Vivian. I heard of Data Science Academy but never thought to look for hires there.
    As soon as I arrived I met Vivian and her team who already knew what type of Data Scientist I was looking for and introduced me to a few students. I was so impressed by them that I decided to invite them for an interview and within one week hired one of the graduates. He has been working with us for a few months and has already made a difference. His amazing technical skills combined with a very strong business acumen helped him take a lead on critical corporate projects and execute them with excellence.
    I strongly recommend all employers looking for Data Scientists to contact Data Science Academy as it truly helps prepare the next generation of data scientists for real world jobs.

    My time at the NYC Data Science Academy was some of the best three months I've ever spent. This is an intense bootcamp but it the instructors are absolutely amazing and push you to excel. Christopher (the main statistics and R instructor) is one of the best people I've ever met and you are guaranteed to be inspired by him. The TA's are some of the most hard-working people you will ever meet and are always available to help (most days until 11pm - not sure if they even go home!). All my peers in the cohort were positively affected by their experience and you should attend without hesitation if you're accepted! Vivian, the academy founder, is personally vested in helping her students find jobs and she is extremely well connected and caring. We are fortunate to be on the cusp of this new and exciting field and have the opportunity to attend such a bootcamp.

    I attended the Data Science Bootcamp in summer 2015. It was a very enriching, useful and enjoyable experience. It offered plenty of important things that one couldn't hope to find by taking online courses or reading textbooks. The instructors possessed valuable knowledge and perspectives in the data science industry, and were able to share them with the students through various activities (e.g. lectures, invited talks, meetups, company visits, individual counseling, etc.). Also, students had a lot of opportunities to interact with established data scientists, as well as collaborate with other aspiring ones on real-world projects.

What do you offer in your 12-week Data Science Bootcamp?

The 12-week bootcamp teaches the full set of tools necessary for a data scientist to hit the ground running in his/her first job.
