What our recent graduates say

 

Brent S
Manager Cloud Engineering, multi $B Healthcare company

“The course is great. A lot of fantastic material packed into a short time. It’s really interactive - a lot of labs, lots of experimentation - the things that really help you learn. You go from just knowing basic programming in Python, to feeling comfortable in a deep learning framework in one week... The course is different from other trainings - more hands-on and truly expert instructors with real world knowledge who are able to transfer that to you. Zero to Deep Learning is absolutely worth going to - financially and time wise.”

Andrew F
Chief Data Officer, Leading web data analytics company

“Attended all of the workshops. Probably some of the best instruction I have ever received. The materials are nicely balanced between theory and practice. The teaching style is dynamic and participatory and the quality of classroom discussion is very high. I got a lot out of this.”

 

 

 

 

Deepti J
Senior Applied Engineer, Fortune 500 Tech company

“This bootcamp is a perfect mix of high level concepts, theory and practice. Francesco does a great of job of first explaining the various concepts in a condensed manner, then seamlessly transitioning into practical labs where you can straight away apply what you’ve learnt... the good part is it is catered to a diverse audience - you may be at different levels of python or may have done deep learning courses before- but this course really lets you practice all of it in one place, and gather what is state of the art right now.”

 Frequently Asked Questions

 

+ Why Zero to Deep Learning?

You will be hands-on from the first session. Our curriculum is an ideal mix of theory and practical, refined over 50 trainings. We deliver content in an engaging, fun and practical way, and our graduates commonly tell us Zero to Deep Learning is one of the best trainings they have ever attended.

+ Why a 5-day Bootcamp over online or 1-2 day trainings?

There are many great online courses. Though our students repeatedly tell us online trainings can only develop your practical skills so far. They require discipline to focus and stay on task, with continual distractions from your work, your boss, your family. Short 1-2 day courses are also useful, though immersive 5-day trainings accelerate your skill development the fastest. This is why our course is structured to provide you 5-days of dedicated focus where your work and personal life align to give you the required space to learn. Combined with and our immersive learning environment, you will maximize your practical skill development.

+ Are there any pre-requisites?

All participants must have: ~ At least 1 year of experience in Python

  • Familiarity with notions of Linear Algebra including Matrix Multiplication Prior knowledge of Numpy, Matplotlib and Pandas is strongly advised.

We ask you to self-rate your Python experience in the application. Once you're registered, we will send you pre-work to help you prepare for Bootcamp. It is very important that you complete the pre-work in order to attend.

+ Why Python?

Python is the standard in data science and machine learning. It has a very mature set of libraries and a large user base. It's easy to learn and it's a full stack programming language that caters to data scientists and software engineers. You can build anything with Python.

+ Why Keras?

Keras is the simplest deep learning library for Python and it is fully integrated with Tensorflow. It allows for easy and fast prototyping, it supports most popular model types, and it comes with lots of tools to make deep learning approachable and fun. Also, all our curriculum is based on Tensorflow 2.0, which makes Keras the preferred API for model building.

+ Why Tensorflow?

Tensorflow is the most popular machine learning and deep learning library and it allows to perform deep learning at scale. It is conceived for Google-size datasets and deployments and it has both a high-level and low-level API. It's ecosystem includes much more than neural networks, spanning from probability models to decision trees.

+ What's your Refund policy?

The following policy is applied to cancellations:

  • Full refund of registration up to 30 days before first day of course

  • 50% refund between 7-30 days before first day of course for a cancellation. Transfer to another course at the discretion of Zero to Deep Learning with the charge of a transfer fee

  • 0% refund within 7 days of course for a cancellation. Transfer to another course at the discretion of Zero to Deep Learning with the charge of a transfer fee

+ Do you offer scholarships?

We currently do not offer scholarships to attend the bootcamp.

+ How can I convince my boss to sponsor me?

Many of our participants come sponsored by their employers. Get in touch with us if you need help with that. Through the years we helped many of our participants obtain company sponsorship to attend the Bootcamp.
