I truly believe this week long bootcamp is an interesting format for people that want to start on a more data-science path but find it hard to take more time off work to do it! I highly recommended!
Getting hands-on gave me insights which would have been impossible through a online course like coursera, so this makes it worth it.
The Data Science Dojo bootcamp helped demystify data science with its expert instruction and hands-on activities for the most common topics in data science. The bootcamp is like a well-curated survey course on data science – you get a sense of the field and enough information to navigate how to find out more. I feel like I have a solid foundation and can move forward with deepening my understanding in the tools of my choice. Coming from an academic background, I really appreciated learning about the industry applications of data science from the instructors as well as my classmates. There are many online resources these days to learn about data science, but they cannot replace the positive learning environment Raja, Brian, and Phuc create in the Data Science Dojo bootcamp.
Wonderful lectures and materials. Working on Kaggle competition together and competing with each other are definitely interesting and helpful on practicing the new knowledge. I would highly recommend DSD to my colleagues!
Although I’m new to R, you helped me understand how it relates to what has been done at the health research center I work at. Thanks for the great resources too.
