It is very useful to have a hands-on, practical guide on the actions to take when working on Data Science projects. That is something that Jellert Schaepherders & Maarten Van den Broeck, from XploData, will share during this session at the Data Science Bootcamp 2018 edition. They will present a step-by-step guide to follow when working on a Data Science project: from selecting and preparing the data, to modelling and finally presenting the insights in a clear, appealing manner. Throughout the day, participants will perform all actions themselves on a real-life case.


  • Data Science professionals who want to better structure and present their projects.


  • Knowledge of Python and/or R.
  • Installation of Rstudio and/or a Python IDE (e.g. PyCharm).
