About

Designed by the data science team at CC/D

The YoDaS program is an 8-week paid training program designed by the data science team at Climate Connect Digital (CC/D). It will ramp-up your python and data science skills by providing everything you need to bloom into a leading data scientist. Regular evaluations will track your progress, study materials & links will give a push when required. The program will focus on solving imperative real-world challenges, through the power of data science.

Digital is in our DNA so you will be able to participate from any part of the world whether from an office, on a beach or from the top of a mountain, basically anywhere you can get online. Come and become a part of the Climate Connect Digital family.

A boundlessly energetic sports fanatic

Akash originally joined as an Economist intern, before transforming himself, and recently ascending to Lead ML Scientist.
He had never coded before joining Climate Connect Digital (CC/D) - “Coding is definitely a learnable skill. I didn’t even know I had it in me, but the starting point was simply a knack for statistics”.
With the help and support CC/D gave him, Akash was nurtured into a data scientist, and started building live national-scale ML models from an early stage. “The training was so effective, I was able to then successfully parlay my skills to the finance sector, which is quite different in nature to energy, before returning to run the YoDaS program”.

An ever smiling crack football striker

Vivek started his career as a humble systems engineer, before joining CC/D, and becoming one of the first generation of ML specialists in the still nascent Data Science field.
After contributing to almost every piece of ML tech at CC/D, he took his newfound skills out into the world, and realised his dream of unravelling the secrets of deep data.
"I can absolutely say that what I learned on the job was pivotal to gaining entry to the Master’s program at the University of Southern California. That then blew open the doors of Silicon Valley, and the cutting-edge energy-tech startup I now work at"
Vivek is now transforming the global energy sector, and is also a guest lecturer on the YoDaS program.
