BaseCamp by Knoyd is a full-time 8-week data science bootcamp located in Vienna, Austria. What differentiates BaseCamp from other data science bootcamps is that they teach students by using data problems from real companies. BaseCamp doesn't only teach students how to juggle data and solve problems, the school prepares students for real world cases and teaches them how to navigate the business side of data science. Coursework focuses on deepening students’ theoretical knowledge and enhancing practical skills in the areas of technology (Python /R /SQL), statistics (statistical inference & A/B testing), machine learning (ensemble methods), and development processes (experimentation and deployment). The 8 weeks is split into lectures, workshops, and projects.
The only prerequisites are advanced English (at least C1 level) and good abstract thinking. There are no other requirements regarding age, skills or formal education. The participant must be eligible to study and live in EU countries.

I had to quit my job to participate in the Basecamp. I was aware that it was a risk because it was the first batch of the Basecamp but I did not regret it at all. Overall, I really enjoyed the Basecamp experience! It helped me bridge the gap between the online courses and the first job. Above all the final project was great. It was not just another toy exercise but a collaboration with a start-up including their real world data. In the end, this was the key to get the my first job as a data scientist. And I was even lucky to meet my future employer at the hiring day. I can imagine that the next batches will be even better.
