    No rejection message

    Let me begin by stating that I applied for S2DS,  but was not accepted. The people that I interacted with during the process seemed to know what they were doing, so I will assume that they were right in rejecting me. If I do not fit in the group or am not fit to be a data scientist, I can only agree with their decision not to waste a valuable spot on me. What I do not agree with is the way that information on my rejection was provided to me. 

    In April 2018 I applied for S2DS London...

    Excellent Program

    S2DS is an excellent place for PhDs to explore the possibility of going into data science, and in fact -- to making the transition. The value is more on opening the window to viewing what data science is, how it is used in industry, and connecting with companies and fellows, rather than on developing technical skills.

    The training is not a course where you learn to program, that should be had beforehand. This is a training where you learn a few new tools and methods, but the most valuable part of the training, besides the project experience, is the business talks they offer, they give a grea...

    Perfect training to transition from academia to a commercial data science role !

    S2DS is a great opportunity for anyone who want to transition from academia to data science. I took part in the summer 2015 session, met great people, worked on a very exiting project within a team, and landed a job in London a few weeks after ... what more could I have asked for !

The field of data science is growing, and with it so does the demand for qualified data scientists. Sounds like a good time to pursue data science, right? No kidding! Data scientists make an avera...
