Python for Data Science

Learn programming in Python, how to work with Jupyter Notebook and to use powerful Python libraries like Pandas and NumPy to explore and analyse big data sets. Collect data from various sources, including CSV files, SQL queries on relational databases, Google Big Query, APIs and Web scraping.

Relational Database & SQL

Learn how to formulate a good question and how to answer it by building the right SQL query. This module will cover schema architecture and then dive deep into the advanced manipulation of SELECT to extract useful information from a stand-alone database or using a SQL client software like DBeaver.

Data Visualization

Make your data analyses more visual and understandable by including data visualisations in your Notebook. Learn how to plot your data frames using Python libraries such as matplotlib and seaborn and transform your data into actionable insights.

Statistics, Probability, Linear Algebra

In Rio de Janeiro you will learn about the underlying math behind all the libraries and models used in the bootcamp. Become comfortable with the basic concepts of statistics & probabilities (mean, variance, random variable, Bayes’s Theorem, etc.) and with matrix computation, at the core of numerical operations in libraries like Pandas and Numpy.

c pulse Statistical inferences

You'll learn how to structure a Python repository with object-oriented programming in order to clean your code and make it re-usable, how to survive the data preparation phase of a vast dataset, and how to find and interpret meaningful statistical results based on multivariate regression models.

speaker Communication

Data analysts are meant to communicate their findings to non-technical audiences: You will learn how to create impact by explaining your technical insights and turn them into business decisions using cost/benefits analysis. You'll be able to share your progress, present and compare your results to your teammates.

Preprocessing and Supervised Learning

Learn how to explore, clean, and prepare your dataset through preprocessing techniques like vectorisation. Get familiar with the classic models of supervised learning - linear and logistic regressions. Learn how to solve prediction and classification tasks with the Python library scikit-learn using learning algorithms like KNN (k-nearest neighbors).

Generalisation and Overfitting

Implement training and testing phases to make sure your model can be generalised to unseen data and deployed in production with predictable accuracy. Learn how to prevent overfitting using regularization methods and how to chose the right loss function to improve your model's accuracy.

Performance Metrics

Evaluate your model's performance by defining what to optimise and the right error metrics in order to assess your business impact. Improve your model's performance with validation methods such as cross validation or hyperparameter tuning. Finally, discover a powerful supervised learning method called SVM (Support Vector Machines).

Unsupervised Learning & Advanced Methods

Move to unsupervised learning and implement methods like PCA for dimensionality reduction or clustering for discovering groups in a data set. Complete your toolbelt with ensemble method that combine other models to improve performance, such as Random Forest or Gradient Boosting.

Neural Networks

Unveil the magic behind Deep Learning by understanding the architecture of neural networks (neurons, layers, stacks) and their parameters (activations, losses, optimisers). Become autonomous to build your own networks, especially to work with images, times and text, while learning the techniques and tricks that make Deep Learning work.

Computer Vision

Go further into computer vision with Convolutional Neural Networks, architectures designed to make the most out of images. Improve your model generalisation thanks to data augmentation techniques and implement advanced methods to benefit from state-of-the-art architectures thanks to Transfer Learning methods.

Times-Series & Text data

Get comfortable into managing sequential data and text (sequence of words) by transforming them into appropriate inputs. Leverage the power of Recurrent Neural Networks to forecast future values and perform valuable Natural Language Processing.

Deep Learning made easy

Discover the Keras Deep Learning library which enables you to prototype easily while having the flexibility to tune precisely your neural network. Moreover, Google Colab will greatly speed up the computational time thanks to dedicated GPUs.

Machine Learning Pipeline

Move from Jupyter Notebook to a code editor and learn how to set up a machine learning project in the right way in order to quickly and confidently iterate. Learn how to convert a machine learning model into a model with a robust and scalable pipeline with sklearn-pipeline using encoders and transformers.

Machine Learning workflow with MLflow

Building a machine learning model from start to finish requires a lot of data preparation, experimentation, iteration, and tuning. We'll teach you how to do your feature engineering and hyperparameter tuning in order to build the best model. For this, we will leverage a library called MLflow.

Deploying to production with Google Cloud Platform

Finally, we'll show you how to deploy your code and model to production. Using Google Cloud AI Platform, you'll be able to train your model at scale, package it and make it available to the world. Cherry on top, you will use a Docker environment to deploy your own RESTful Flask API which could be plugged into any front-end interface.

Solve real-world problems with Data!

The final weeks of the course will culminate in the delivery of your capstone project! Working collaboratively in small teams, the project will allow you to utilise all the skills you have learned throughout the bootcamp in order to solve a real world data science problem.

  • Collaborate efficiently in teams of 3-4 people on a real data science project through a common Python repository.
  • Use a mix of your own datasets (if you have any from your company / non-profit organisation) and open-data repositories (Government initiatives, Kaggle, etc.)
  • Put into practice all the tools, techniques, and methodologies covered in the Data Science Course.
  • Invent, pitch, design, code, and deploy your fully functioning Data Project, to be used in real-life scenarios and as a portfolio-ready application to showcase your new data science skill set.

Admission & prep work

Our Data Science course requires a basic level of Python & Mathematics. As we want all of our students to succeed, you'll be able to test your level and refresh your skills before the Bootcamp starts.

Admission prerequisites in Python & Maths
  • Python prerequisites

    You'll need to be comfortable with data types & variables, conditions, loops, functions and data structures (List & Dictionary).

  • Mathematics prerequisites

    You'll need a High School level of Maths, meaning you will be comfortable with functions, derivatives, and systems of linear equations.

  • Testing your skills

    After a chat with our Admissions team, you will receive a Python & Mathematics Quiz to help you and the Admissions team better understand your current level in Python & Maths. We'll also provide you with a set of additional free learning resources to help you match the prerequisite level for the Bootcamp.

Post-admission prep work

Once you have been accepted onto the Data Science Bootcamp (congrats!), you'll receive ~ 40h of online learning resources. We require all of our students to complete this before the Bootcamp starts, either at their own pace or during our Data Prep Week.

The Data Prep Week takes place the week before the official start date of the Bootcamp. This is an additional week of interactive online learning designed to help you get through this content as efficiently as possible and ensure you have the necessary foundations in Python before the bootcamp starts.

What is a bootcamp?

A bootcamp is a type of immersive training designed to develop important skills in a variety of areas. You can read more about here.

Interested in learning amazing skills soooo fast?🚄

A bootcamp is for you! This teaching methodology grows more and more in the world and is the future of education!

What bootcamps does Le Wagon offer?

We currently have Web Development 👨‍💻 and Data Science 📊 bootcamps

Web Development is the area of creating websites

Data Science is linked to several areas of data analysis

Currently, like other technology careers, there is great demand from the current job market, thus making people who graduate in these areas get jobs relatively easier and earning well.💸

What are the bootcamp days and times?

There are 2 types of bootcamp: Full-time and Part-Time.

They work as follows:

Full-Time Bootcamp 👉 Lasts 9 weeks, Monday through Friday 9:00h to 7:00h

Part-Time Bootcamp 👉 Lasts 24 weeks, takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 19:00h to 22:00h and Saturdays from 10:00h to 17:00h

Is it remote or in person?

Although there are exclusively remote classes, we are working with the hybrid model, that is, you choose how you want to complete the bootcamp, our methodology is not affected by this, but if you have the option to choose between remote or face-to-face

Maaaas, we consider the face-to-face model ideal for the experience to be complete. You don't want to miss our happy hours🍺, right?

Do I need to have some knowledge to do the bootcamp?

For the Web Development bootcamp, you just need motivation and energy!

And for the Data Science bootcamp, you need to master basic math: functions, their derivatives, and systems of linear equations. Also, an intermediate level of English is required to understand the content 🤓

Do I need to be fluent in English?

In Rio de Janeiro, both courses (Full-Time and Part-Time) are taught in English, you don't need to be 100% fluent but you need to be able to understand written and spoken English well and you have to be able to communicate in English, as our platform and exercises are in English and you may have teammates who only speak English.

In São Paulo, classes are taught in Portuguese, although sufficient English is desirable to read the material.

What is the price of bootcamp?

The Web Development bootcamp costs R$19,500 and the Data Science bootcamp R$20,900. These values are for Brazilians only.

For foreigners, the Web Development bootcamp is worth 6,000 USD and the Data Science bootcamp is 6,500 USD

So that everyone can afford this investment in a new career, we have some financing, installment and discount options too!

What are the financing, installment and discount options?

We have the following payment methods and discounts:

Payment methods:

• From 1x to 3x without interest

• 12x (monthly interest of 1.89%)

• 18x (monthly interest of 1.99% ) • 24x (monthly interest of 2.19%)

Discounts (non-cumulative):

• 5% for cash payment

• 7% members (if you refer a friend to the bootcamp and both pass our selection process)

We also have the ISA modality, designed to serve low-income people who want to do the bootcamp.

If you have any questions, talk to our bootcamp manager, she will be happy to help you with that.

Do I need to have a notebook?

Yes, each student must have their own notebook with macOS, Linux or Windows operating system.

Should I buy a specific computer to take the course?

Should I buy a specific computer to take the course?

For the computer, we don't have minimum requirements, if it runs the most basic programs well, then it will probably hold up well to our development tools, you don't need to have a spaceship at home.

On the first day, we'll setup the machines to install everything you'll need during bootcamp, so don't worry!

⚠️ Tablets like Microsoft Surface or Apple iPad don't work, because they're not real computers. If you need help purchasing equipment, please contact our team.

How is the selection process?

The first step is to submit the application form, it takes a few minutes to complete.

After our contact by email, we will schedule a quick conversation via video call or even in person if you prefer. This conversation is to understand in detail your goals and motivations, shortly after the interview you will receive the answer informing you whether or not you are the newest student of Le Wagon!

How should I prepare for the interview?

After we approve your application, we will schedule a 30-minute interview to get to know you better.

The tip is: be yourself! Again, we will be looking at your motivation, but we will also be checking your team spirit. As you will often be working with other people during the course, this is a very important criterion for us. If you're highly motivated and love working with other people, you'll probably be able to move on to the next step.

How will my online application be evaluated?

In online applications, we're looking for just one thing: motivation. As our 9 week course is intense and challenging, we only want the most motivated people. Don't forget to explain why you want to join Le Wagon - the more details you give, the better your chances of being selected for the interview!

If the class is full, can I join the waiting list?

Le Wagon changes lives so it is very difficult for an already approved person to want to drop out, however we do have a waiting list when classes are full in case that happens.

To join this waitlist, you will need to go through the same application process.

When will the next classes be?

We usually open classes 4-5 months in advance. You will see the upcoming dates of classes in the city you are interested in on their page or through our social networks. We recommend that you register at least 1 month before the start of the class. There's a very important selection process for you to go through!
