Techniques For Autonomy

DeepMay is a new kind of bootcamp. 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 is broken into three tracks: Data Science, Web Development, and Creative. In each track, students learn distinct skills and collaborate with the other track throughout the program. Students have a packed schedule from morning until late in the evening. Participants 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.
