Data Science and Big Data is all the talk these days. For folks interested in this field, I put together a list of all the major players in the Data Science bootcamp space. They seem to be clustered in San Francisco and New York . This list doesn't include any of the university programs...

I recently discovered http://www.kaggle.com , and I'm participating in some of the competitions listed and just wanted to share.
If you're interest in building machine learning and data mining algos , this is a good place to test / train that skillset.
Be warned, you're competing against...
With the recent happenings in North Africa and with some of the middle east in "revolution" mode...does $150 / barrel Oil look feasible in the next few weeks / months.
If things get worse in Egypt and the Suez canal is closed...we'd be lucky if it doesn't get close to $200
I was wondering if anyone here has participated in any of these courses Statistics.com Course Catalog.
I've looked everywhere and just found a few bad reviews from a couple years ago. It seems to be a cheap alternative (about $200 - $400 per course if you are a student) to learn new skills.
