October 12-13: Machine Learning - Data Science and Analytics for Developers [2-Day advanced]





GOTO Academy are excited to bring you UK-based Phil Winder of Winder Research, for an intensive 2-day Data science and Analytics course, that will leave you with practical tools for utilizing Machine Learning principles in your organisation.

This course combines intermediate and advanced courses into one efficient program. At the end of this course you will be considered professionally capable of developing and delivering data science products. Immediately start applying what you've learnt!

This 2-day course is consists of Day 2+3 of a 3-Day consolidated course which can be viewed here. The course is designed to give ultimate flexibility depending on your skill level and your learning goals. If you're unsure which package is right for you, please contact us.

Who will benefit

This course is aimed towards developers, in which we will delve into the mathematics behind the code as well as developing real life algorithms in Python. One-to-one help will be provided for developers new to Python and all algorithms, frameworks and libraries used will be demonstrated by the instructor.


You are expected to have experience with both programming and data science to do the more advanced topics of the full 3-day course. If you have less experience you are welcome to complete the 2 or 3-day course starting on October 11th.
