Zipfian is an intensive, 12-week program in San Francisco, CA aims to graduate proficient data scientists. The curriculum has been crafted by practicioners in the field and is based on hands-on projects and real-world applications. The full curriculum covers software engineering, machine learning, statistics and probability, utilities: shell/UNIX, data at scale, and then how to acquire, store, transform, and visualize that data. Zipfian promises an intimate class size (only 15 students are admitted per cohort), mentorship from instructors and industry experts, high-quality datasets, individual and group projects, and a hiring day at the end of the program to match graduates with premier tech companies. In addition to the 12-week immersive course, Zipfian also offers an online Intro to Data Science Class Series that includes six 1.5-hour lectures, class exercises to provide hands-on practice, and access to an online Q&A forum where professors can answer students' questions.
