WHAT DO DATA ANALYSTS DO?
The world of data analysts includes a whole range of specializations. Here are a few of them.
Data Analysts work with technical resources to identify a stakeholder’s best approach using the right databases and tools. Working to make sense of large, unsorted amounts of data, analysts establish a workflow while working with the client to automate their processes.
Business Analysts apply their knowledge of designing, developing, and testing software to evaluate an organization’s business and IT systems. They make recommendations to reduce inefficiencies and costs, and identify ways to streamline the business’ structure.
Marketing Analysts gather, clean, and sort data to provide marketing insights to a company. They review marketing campaign results, use tools to understand current consumer trends, and research competitors to help the company improve their marketing efforts.

We believe that the best developers are passionate, lifelong learners. As for you: you see bootcamp as more than just the means to an end, and it shows in your ever-growing list of side projects.
Some brains are just wired for coding, no matter their previous exposure or education. Veterans are often required to think in a logical, structured way that lends itself beautifully to a career as a developer.
Becoming a developer is far from easy. This bootcamp program requires motivation, determination, hard work, and resilience. Veterans are often goal-oriented and have a solid idea of what they want to accomplish and then work hard to get it done.

Our students put their trust in us, so we hold ourselves to the highest standards to ensure that everyone coming into our program is set up for success..
A short 5-10 minute application for you to introduce yourself, including your education, previous experience, and your superpower. You know, the important details that help us get to know you. New cohorts fill up on a rolling basis, so make sure to submit your application as soon as possible!
Our admissions team will get in touch (quickly!) after reviewing your application and invite you for an interview. During the interview, we'll discuss your background and post-bootcamp goals so we can get to know you better. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions you might have. The interview is a chance for both of us to assess if this program is a fit for you.
The first step to becoming a Data Scientist is laying good foundations with our Prep Modules. This free, self-paced online course will introduce you to the technologies and tools you’ll use throughout bootcamp, including Git, Github, Python and math concepts. You’re required to complete the Prep Modules before your first day of bootcamp.
