My workplace (based in Australia) is thinking of organising training for staff to learn Julia, specifically machine learning with Julia. Of course, part of the process involves giving a rough cost estimate.
I suggested the training from Julia Computing as they came to mind first naturally. A colleague reached out to them to inquire about pricing but haven’t heard back yet and we need numbers to put in soon (EDIT: before the end of this week!).
Just wondering if anyone has had experience with the training from Julia Computing, and how much the total cost was (even if it’s a rough estimate).
I think that a lot depends on the details (duration of the course, in-person or online, learning objectives), especially how much individual work the participants are willing to do. Eg at one extreme, if you want a semester-length course in person at a location where you have to ask someone to visit, you could be running into 5 digits easily (with travel and accommodation). But on the other end, if you want a few online lectures, and maybe individual help when participants get stuck, you could manage with a few thousand dollars.
You have to provide details. But I agree with @gdalle, free material takes you a long way. Combine it with a bit of guidance from a skilled mentor and you should be set.
Yes, thank you. We’re thinking virtual lectures with some tutorials. Think like an intensive short course over 2 or 3 days. Attendees would be spread across Australia.
I’m aware there’s plenty of free material but I also think having a set time with someone experienced is a good motivator for people to commit to learn. Otherwise Julia would always be something they’ve heard of but haven’t had the time to try yet.
