"Working with datasets allows you to discover things that nobody has ever before, on a daily basis!"
Manuel Garrido, iXperience 2018 Data Science Head Teacher – Lisbon
Manuel was born in Lisbon, Portugal, but has lived most of his life in Murcia, a small town in South East Spain. After attaining his Masters in Industrial Engineering and another in Management at IE Business School, he was hired to develop analyses and models for the main Spanish political parties during the 2012 election.
Recently, he launched an extensive MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), focusing on teaching Data Science in Spanish.
Besides expanding my online Data Science Course in Spanish, I am the CTO of Tribeclick, an ad tech startup based in Valencia, Spain.
I've always loved data – compact sheets of information displayed in a tidy way. Working with datasets allows you to discover things that nobody has ever before on a daily basis! Adding computer engineering to that means I get to build new things constantly too.
I am really looking forward to meeting interesting students that are willing to get into the awesome world of Data Science!
Also, because of the Pydata ecosystem maturing, I expect less and less people to be involved in Machine Learning only, and more companies looking for a “Full Stack Data Scientist” – someone who can implement a predictive pipeline from start to finish.
After graduating, students will be able to build a predictive pipeline from beginning to end, starting from data acquisition, data processing, predictive modelling, and finally deploying a model on a predictive app.
This program is only a bootcamp, so that means there is plenty of room to grow and learn after the program has ended! I recommend not stopping at what I will teach you (the “this is all I need to know” mentality), but to continue exploring, and gaining more knowledge after the program.
I am a huge Historical Reenactment nerd. I have forged my own sword, and even made my own shield.
