OK Coders is excited to host our first ever data analytics bootcamp this spring in OKC! The 8-week introductory bootcamp will cover the basics of data analytics using R and SQL. During the 8 weeks you’ll learn how to work with a relational SQL database, how to break down analytical questions into small sub-problems, and how to solve each with the R programming language. The class will cover the basics of working with data, statistical modeling, and some application of machine learning. This will include the completion of 2 analytical projects that can be shown in a code portfolio. The bootcamp is intended for beginners, but experienced developers are welcome as well.


Bootcamp dates and cost to participate

The 8-week bootcamp will take place Mondays and Wednesdays in downtown Oklahoma City this fall. The bootcamp will run from 6pm-8pm for 8 consecutive weeks beginning March 5. The cost to participate is $395.


Are there any prerequisites?

No previous coding or data analysis experience is necessary in order to apply for this bootcamp. If you are brand new to programming or to the R language, check out this free online resource to start getting familiar with the language and syntax of R.


Who is teaching this bootcamp?

The bootcamp will be taught by Frank Evans, a data scientist at local tech company Exaptive. Frank works heavily with big data systems, and his work spans financial analysis and behavioral analytics to sports analytics. His primary interest is in machine learning and feature engineering on very large scales. You can check out his work here: https://github.com/frankdevans and http://www.slideshare.net/frankdevans, and you can watch his TEDxUCO talk here.
