  • $39 worth of Supertype Fellowship+ included (peer to peer learning group, mentorship, post-workshop implementation support)
After the workshop, all Practicum members are invited to join the Supertype Fellowship, where you can continue to build your AI agent, access real-time financial data, and collaborate with other members in the community with the free API credits provided to you.
Whether you are a hobby programmer, or looking to wet your feet in the field of data analytics, or if you're even a little curious as to what Large Language Models (i.e. GPT-4, Llama 3, etc.) can do for you, this workshop is for you.

Earn a Certificate of Completion (Practicum-only)

Follow along the last 1 hour of the workshop as a Workshop + Practicum member to earn a certificate of completion. 

We issue this certificate of completion as proof of demonstrable proficiency, and the difficulty level is suited for beginner / junior programmers. You will be asked to submit your work via a Github upload, at which point a mentor will assess and award a certificate as acknowledgement of your competency.
