Zipfian Academy

Zipfian Academy is a training program aimed at creating the next generation of Data Scientists. Through a hands-on project based curriculum, we teach students the practical skills needed to yield actionable results from data. Applicants range from those looking to make the leap into a new career, to academic experts looking to bring these skills into their respective fields. The curriculum (Python, R, and UNIX based) includes statistical theory and probabilistic modeling, data cleaning, machine learning, computing at scale, and visualizing data among other things. Zipfian is an organization of educators, students, and industry professionals who have come together to apply our collective knowledge to solve 21st century problems. We are seeking the right questions to ask, exploring new methods and structures of learning, and fostering a community that values collaborative instruction and radical altruism.
