Programming is one of the most important job skills for the future.
Our support team have been there and done that - they are experienced practitioners of data science in various fields such as Utilities, Retail and Financial Services; with a solid academic background.
The course is built around solving actual problems whilst learning about the latest programming basics and techniques.
EXPLORE prides itself on the practicality of the course. Participants must be able to apply the skills/knowledge that they acquired in your everyday job to impact their business.
Participants will have extended access to the material that are covered in the course, allowing them to revisit the techniques to keep it fresh in their mind.
Participants will learn how to utilise the power of Python. They will start by covering the basics such as working with data types and variables to more complex topics such as writing functions, using loops and conditional statements. They will also learn to import and use libraries.Download Full Syllabus
Students will cover the basics of programming in python - basic syntax, data types, debugging errors, using variables and logic statements, coding for-loops and writing functions.
We take teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect with topics on a profound level. With experience in the field and the classroom, our data science instructors are unmatched. Simply put: students learn from the best.
Jaco is a Lead Data Scientist in the EXPLORE Data Science Academy. He has spent the bulk of his career on scientific and industrial research and holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on mathematical modelling and optimisation.
Jason holds a Master's in Physics and loves to explore the way the universe works. He's recently found a home in data science, and now likes to build self-driving cars for fun. He currently works in the content creation side of the academy, working towards bringing Data Science to all parts of South Africa.
Dewald is an actuary and senior data scientist. He was one of the first brave souls to join the EXPLORE ship in 2016. He is managing EXPLORE's learning platform, Athena, and leading the corporate training - 2/3 day bootcamps to upskill employees.
Programming is important for speeding up processes as well as to automate, collect, manage, calculate, analyse processing of data and information accurately. People should program because it develops structured and creative thinking, and teaches persistence.
Python is one of the best languages to learn for the following reasons:
