What You'll Learn

This one month course covers the basics of software development and machine learning. The goal of the course is to write a machine learning model that can accurately predict handwritten digits.

We will use the popular MNIST digit recognition dataset to train our model, and the end result will be a fully functioning machine learning model you can display to potential employers.

Value: A Complete Project

Upon completion of this course, you will have built a basic machine learning neural network model that recognizes hand-written digits. This project will leverage the popular machine learning libraries numpy, pandas, tensorflow and keras to build a fully functioning application that learns how to read numbers. The best part is, you can show this off to your family and friends!

Alumni Success Stories

Yulia, who enrolled in our FinTech course, is also the first female graduate of Byte Academy. Read about her experience transitioning from Finance into FinTech in addition to perceptions she experienced as a woman (and non-US citizen) in the tech community. Yulia is currently a Data Scientist at Plaid.*
Byte really understands what it takes to get a great job…I can genuinely say that the learning which Byte Academy provided me with, was pinnacle to receiving an offer.
Byte Academy has been fantastic… I really like launching myself into an immersive hands on program from day one. Where an experience like this teaches you the theory, but every moment is devoted to learning how to apply that theory.
via Perth, Australia
The skills I learned helped me pivot into the tech industry. The base language of Byte, Python, is particularly valuable for anyone looking to get into data-intensive industries or roles (I recently accepted a position as a Data Integration Engineer).
Having exposure to CFD, I learned how mathematical models are used to solve analysis problems. I wanted to know the coding behind them and then do it myself. But it was implemented in C++, which has a hard learning curve. Recently learned about data science & since it was done using Python which is comparatively easier, I got interested in data science. Its scope for implementing improvements, optimizations & new practices based upon data analysis interested me. I can also go into machine learning & take advantage of the large data sets available. And also due to growing opportunities in the field.

I heard Python was the most comprehensive programming language so I wanted to learn it. I heard about Byte Academy from a friend studying there. Also, I wanted to return to India and Byte offered the perfect opportunity for me to do that. It also seemed like a small institution where I could get all the hands-on learning I need to learn to program.

University Student, Python Bootcamp Graduate
My experience at Byte Academy Bangalore was a life changing one. I went from having no experience with coding to being very comfortable with Python and SQL. The experience was both challenging and exciting and requires a lot of hard work behind the scenes to keep up with the intense curriculum and work load. The teaching assistants were always helpful and very knowledgable. I would recommend this school to anyone without coding experience and especially to people who have a passion for working with computers. This was truly an amazing experience.
