FAQ

I want to start preparing for the course. What can I do?

If you haven't used Flask or Docker

If you have no previous experience with ML

  • Check Module 1 from ML Zoomcamp for an overview
  • Module 3 will also be helpful if you want to learn Scikit-Learn (we'll use it in this course)
  • We'll also use XGBoost. You don't have to know it well, but if you want to learn more about it, refer to module 6 of ML Zoomcamp

I registered but haven't received an invite link. Is it normal?

Yes, we haven't automated it. You'll get a mail from us eventually, don't worry.

If you want to make sure you don't miss anything:

Is it going to be live?

No and yes. There will be two parts:

  • Lectures: Pre-recorded, you can watch them when it's convenient for you.
  • Office hours: Live on Mondays (17:00 CET), but recorded, so you can watch later.

I just joined. Can I still get a certificate?

  • To get a certificate, you need to complete a project
  • There will be two attempts to do a project
  • First: in July, second: in August
  • If you manage to finish all the materials till August, and successfully finish the project, you'll get the certificate
