DeepMay Tech Camp

May 24 – June 2, 2019

deepmay tech camp

DeepMay is a new kind of bootcamp taking place at the Cabbage School outside Asheville, NC May 24–June 2, 2019. Organized by a collective of data scientists, programmers, designers, academics and product managers, the goal of the camp is to increase our collective capacity by sharing skills in a structured way. DeepMay combines the speed and intensity of the “tech bootcamp” model, with the world-building DIY ethos of autonomy.

The ten-day intensive will be broken into three tracks: Data Science, Web Development, and Creative. In each track, students will learn distinct skills and collaborate with the other track throughout the program. Students can expect a packed schedule from morning until late in the evening. Participants will start each day with group exercise, break up into tracks for classes and lectures throughout the day, and will take turns cooking meals for each other and taking care of other collective chores.

In the tech track, students will choose an area of focus: data science or front-end web development.

The data science specialization will cover different data structures, exploratory data analysis and visualization using Python, the basics of GIS (geographic information systems) and mapping, data set gathering and manipulation, interacting with APIs, and using machine learning.

The front-end web development specialization will cover fundamentals of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript; students will learn to build and maintain basic web applications using a JavaScript framework. All Development track students will learn how to use the command line and Git to deploy, share, and collaborate on code-based projects.

In the creative track, students will learn the basics of typography, art direction, branding, UX, and UI. Students will learn to execute concepts based on visual research, typographic training, formal exercises, and layout. Special emphasis will be placed on design digital media, and working with developers.
