Python for Data Science & Intro to Python Boot Camps

Making coding accessible to diversity STEM undergrad and graduate students. Cal NERDS Python boot camps provide access to coding to UC Berkeley diversity STEM undergraduate and graduate students. Since the pandemic, we have also reached out beyond Cal to include other student communities. They are offered throughout the year. Our newly revised format allows us to break up the curriculum into 101 (data types and structures) and 102 (loops, libraries, and functions) both are scheduled on the weekends in three hour sections. No prior coding experience needed. These workshops are designed for students who don’t have time to enroll in a semester-long course but want coding experience. These boot camps are made possible by a generous donor named Susan Lyne. Get ready for a career in the tech industry with these skills sets!

“I'm a dss student and have fear of taking classes that I'm not familiar with particularly, high tec. classes. Most of the classes are impacted and getting help in a computer class is not realistic. The weekend class was manageable everyone was great. The group created a friendly atmosphere that made us all feel included. It helped me loose fear of learning a new computer program.”
- Lena, UC Berkeley Senior
