Getting Started with Applied Data Science with Venture Applications:

  • Before Applied Data Science at Berkeley, if you don’t have a working knowledge of Python, you can update your skills with the on-line Python Bootcamp offered by UC Berkeley and the Institute of Data Science.  We recommend that you understand the content of at least the first 6 video lectures.
    • Bootcamp Website
    • BIDS Website with training videos
    • Python Bootcamp Videos on YouTube
    • Code and notebooks on Github
  • To get started, first, install the Anaconda Environment which includes a Jupyter Notebook for interactive Python.
  • See this Github link for install instructions for all necessary tools including install examples in Jupyter Notebook format
  • Suggestions for Data-X project may be submitted here:
