Kickstart Series

An introductory workshop for aspiring data scientists and entrepreneurs

Workshops in our KICKSTART series are tailored to casual programmers and non-programmers that are taking their first steps into data science. It assumes no prior knowledge or academic background, and attendees will be introduced to the beautiful art of writing R / Python code to produce data visualization and simple regression models.

Note: Workshops in the KICKSTART series follow a structured course, and re-use many of previous materials from earlier KICKSTART workshops. If you have attended a KICKSTART data science workshop in the past and would like to be exposed to more intermediate-level data science education materials, consider signing up for an Algoritma Membership or attend our Data Science Fundamentals workshops (3-day)

You can obtain a free entry to all our KICKSTART series workshops with an active membership.
