The Retreat

Our approach to teaching is highly opinionated, and is based on our extensive experience in state-of-the-art machine learning, data science, and big data engineering.

We know what works, and what doesn’t. If you want to learn this stuff as fast as humanly possible, this is your best bet:

  • Small class sizes
  • Battle-tested material
  • Expert mentors, at the top of their game, who are good at teaching.
    Don't take our word for it. See for yourself

Is this for me?

Data Science Retreat is for people with previous work experience and basic knowledge of machine learning.

Programming knowledge is a requisite. We don't expect you to know data science related languages, but we do expect confidence in your coding, because you will spend most of your time doing it.

You do not need a deep mathematical background. Some techniques, though, rely on linear algebra and probability theory.

We update and improve our curriculum for every batch of students coming to DSR.
Its emphasis is on helping you find questions you can answer with modern technology and on producing the best performing model humanly possible. 

You will present your work to different audiences. We will train you to do it, but you may want to feel confident speaking in public before applying.



Portfolio ProjecT

Build something amazing on your own. This is the most important part of your retreat. We’ll be around to help you get rolling and prevent you from getting stuck.


You'll be taught by experts in the field, covering theoretical and practical uses of data science.
Take a look at what you'd be learning here.


After three months of hands-on work, we host a demo day, where you will meet and talk with some of the top companies hiring data scientists today. The best of our students have landed some outstanding jobs.
