newton Le, data scientist at twitter cortext

“I was sheltered in the world of academia when I applied to be a TDI fellow. Now, after working for many years in industry, I’ve really come to appreciate the meticulous choices TDI made in its training program that made the transition seamless. From communicating with Slack, to coding exercises on Hackerrank, interview training, to exposure to a variety of relevant technologies—all of this experience I’ve utilized one way or another on the job.”

Xia Hong, LinkedIn data scientist

“Completing mini-projects on diverse and up-to-date topics really helped me to be confident about how to apply my technical skills to solve problems in practical situations. The hands-on experience from end to end, specifically the relevance of the techniques to that in industry, is going to be a long-term benefit for me and certainly for any previous and current student.”

Xia Hong
Brian Farris, Capital One data scientist

“The most valuable thing I got out of The Data Incubator was the ability to meet people from industry through the partner panels and happy hours. [It] was an extremely efficient way to do a lot of networking in a short amount of time, which greatly increases the chance of finding a job. It is much easier to initiate a dialogue with a hiring partner if you have already met someone from the company.”
