Bootcamps & Mindcamps

Bootcamps and Mindcamps are two-week intense programming and personality development sessions conducted at all three INSOFE campuses (Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad) on a regular basis.

A typical day in a bootcamp would be 6-7 hours of hands-on programming focussed on either deep-dive into an ML algorithm or using these algorithms to participate in an online competition such as Kaggle. Coding session will be followed by 1-2 hours of mindcamp sessions (debates, discussions, role-playing, etc.) which will help students build essential professional skills needed in the industry to complement the technical skills learned in the bootcamp.


Schedule

These bootcamp-mindcamp sessions will be roughly offered once every month at any one location. Please check the bootcamp-mindcamp calendar for upcoming sessions. The theme for every session may marginally vary and hence, specific schedule for the 2-weeks will be announced after registration.


Benefits

Bootcamps and Mindcamps are designed primarily for refreshing your PGP curriculum through a complete hands-on approach, to inculcate in you a holistic approach towards problem-solving and to better prepare you for your job interviews. It will also encourage you to build your public profile and contribute to websites such as Kaggle, GitHub, StackOverflow, etc.


Who should attend

It is highly encouraged for all PGP students to attend after completing your course. If you are seeking career services from INSOFE, you may be REQUIRED to go through at least one bootcamp-mindcamp session depending on your performance in PGP.

Is it mandatory for PGP certification?
No. It is encouraged but not mandatory for certification.

Can I attend multiple bootcamps-mindcamps?
Yes, you can attend as many bootcamps and mindcamps as you want across the cities. You may be required to register separately for each one. However, we may restrict the admission if too many people subscribe to ensure that we give focused care. In such cases, people attending for the first time, needing mandatory career services are given priority.

When will bootcamp-mindcamp for my batch offered?
Bootcamp-Mindcamp sessions will not be offered per batch. There will be calendar published and you can register for one as per the calendar schedule and your own availability. In general, we do one bootcamp per city per quarter.

Do I have to pay to attend bootcamp-mindcamp sessions?
No. It is free for all PGP students.

Do I get a monetary benefit for attending these sessions?
No. There may be a prize for the best performer at the end of two weeks but you will not get paid to attend the sessions. This is an additional service being offered by INOSFE to better prepare for industry those students who need additional help. While all students will benefit from these sessions, our focus will remain on those who need additional support to gain expertise.

Under what circumstances, bootcamp-mindcamp will be mandatory for me?
If you are seeking career support and have not been able to perform to the desired level in the course, Career Services team may make it mandatory for you to attend a bootcamp-mindcamp to become industry-ready before they start showing opportunities to you.

Can I take this bootcamp-mindcamp remotely?
No. You will be required to be physically present in the bootcamp-mindcamp sessions full day (9-7 PM) for all the 10 days (2-weeks). We will offer these in our Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Mumbai locations.

What exactly is mindcamp?
Mindcamp sessions are daily 1-2 hour sessions for personality, confidence and resume building. These will be non-technical but heavily interactive sessions where everyone in the audience will be expected to participate. It is simply not sufficient to be strong technically in a subject like Data Science where your holistic thinking skills become as important to solve industry problems.

What do I get out of this bootcamp-mindcamp?
Knowledge refresher, hands-on coding, public visibility through popular profiles, confidence-building and resume writing sessions. This will collectively help you prepare for jobs. This will help you not only for getting a job initially, but also to grow in the career well.

Can I attend only the Bootcamp or only the Mindcamp?
No. All these sessions have various aspects integrated into each other. You have to attend all sessions.

If I miss one or two sessions due to unavoidable circumstances, will it disqualify me from getting Career Services?
Please understand that we are going the extra mile, only to help our students. We expect the students to reciprocate for their own benefit. If you miss one or two sessions, we may ask you to attend another bootcamp-mindcamp session again for 2 weeks, unless you have performed so well in the remaining time that we assess you are ready to face interviews. This will purely be our subjective assessment and no discussion on the decision will be entertained. Again, please note we are doing it for you and so, you must follow our rules and decisions, which we take only in your best interests.

Challenging but Satisfying!
The exceptional faculty, comprehensive curriculum along with extensive lab-sessions made me choose INSOFE. INSOFE’s Data Science program and my 19 years of work experience in the software industry, made me grab good job opportunities in the AI and Analytics domains.

Scholarships - Icing on the Cake
Participating in the hackathons and winning the scholarships was a great opportunity. They made me learn and develop more and more every day.

INSOFE…
then the magic happened!

After my Ph.D., INSOFE almost became a second university for me. The faculty make very tough subjects easier to learn - which is not an easy job. The curriculum does come above and beyond industry expectations. As I previously worked as a Data Analyst in the Healthcare industry, I was able to relate to it quite well.

INSOFE faculty teaches a lot of stats, regressions, logistics and classroom analysis. The way they taught made me articulate and communicate very well.

Internships were the game-changer!

I got an opportunity to do my internship under Dr. Anand Jayaraman. We were working on leveraging machine learning to make a profitable trading strategy. It was a complex project where we used a lot of advanced techniques. I was fascinated with AI and mathematical concepts with which I was able to think of new invigorating ideas and recreate a new piece of code. This live internship helped me with my research and explore the latest technologies. And the Scholarships helped me give my best!

A Great Journey!

INSOFE's pedagogy instilled huge confidence in me as a Data Science professional which eventually helped me get placed at Sutherland Global Services, right after the completion of my program. The highly qualified mentors and data scientists paved the way to lay a strong foundation for the concepts. The lab sessions really helped us to get our hands dirty with complex real-world data sets. Growing from an enthusiast to becoming a professional, It was a great journey!
