Want to learn Data Science in 12 weeks? Zipfian Academy is offering just that.
The inaugural class will begin Fall 2013. Also the schedule is five days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., so it is a very intensive program. You must be willing to relocate to San Francisco for the 12 weeks. The cost of the data science program is $14,400, but some scholarships and sponsorships are available.
At first the cost seems high, but when you consider the program will prepare you for a different career in just 12 weeks, it does not sound so bad. I think you are paying for 2 things: the immense amount of information and the condensed format. The information planned to be covered does look very extensive, everything from storing data to cleaning data to machine learning.
I am not aware of another program like this existing. If you are not concerned with getting a “university degree” and would like to learn data science, I think Zipfian Academy looks like a good choice.
