As I’ve done with nearly all of the previous cohorts at The Data School, allow me to introduce you to our next cohort, DS7, beginning their training on October 2nd. We had a record 68 applications, three early acceptances, and 19 interviews in one day for the final five spots (though we ended up taking six additional). What an incredible set of applications! We had to turn away so many great candidates, either moving them straight to the final interviews for DS8 or introducing them to customers that are looking for talent to develop.
Whatever the case, word seems to be spreading and the pool of applicants is getting deeper and deeper. Are we on the verge of needing to double the size of each cohort? Only time will tell.
With that, allow me to introduce you to the nine member of DS7. As you look through these, you will be familiar with the data sets if you participate in Makeover Monday: Players Arrests in the NFL (week 35) and Stolen Bikes in the UK (week 37).
