A crucial part of learning data science is applying the skills you learn to real world projects. Working on interesting projects keeps you motivated to continue learning and helps you sharpen your skills. Working in teams helps you learn from the different experiences of others and generate new ideas about learning avenues you can pursue in the future. That's why District Data Labs is starting a virtual incubator program for data science projects!
The incubator program is:
- Free (no cost to you)
- Part-time (you can work on projects in your spare time)
- Virtual (you don't need to be located in the DC area)
The first class of the incubator is scheduled to run from May through October 2014. This is a great way to learn by working on a project with other people and even potentially sharing in the rewards of a project that ends up being commercially viable.
