Data Engineering
Summer School

11th - 15th September


Learn data engineering from the pros

This Summer School is for you if you want to become a data engineer!

After 5 days of new experiences which go beyond the theory, you will be able to add significant contributions to data engineering pipelines. Whether you do so in teams or entirely by yourself! The skills and tools you've learned, engrained even, will serve you throughout your entire career.

We provide the foundations for the junior and medior levels, though you should be familiar with the basics of Python. This means that people without data engineering experience are welcome, but also those who have some experience with it.

Are you (working for) a SME in Vlaams Gewest? 

Use the “kmo-portefeuille” subsidy!

Data Minded Academy courses are eligible for a subsidy from the “kmo-portefeuille”: small and medium-sized enterprises located in the Flemish Region can receive a subsidy of up to €7500 per year for services offered by registered providers, like Data Minded.


Check whether you meet the conditions and how much subsidy you can receive. You can also start the application procedure there.

Calculation example:


A small company can be reimbursed 30% of the Summer School, so that it does not cost €1000, but only €700 for 1 employee. Other discounts, like the early bird discount, still apply.

Making your people more capable data engineers 🚀


The Winter School was a good amount of challenging. A lot of the concepts were still new despite having gone through the material beforehand. I enjoyed all the exercises, and learned a lot.
