The amount of information I gathered in a week long bootcamp with Data Science Dojo was phenomenal. I came from almost no background in Machine Learning and learned not only how to effectively use the tools available but also the inner depth of various machine learning techniques. This kind of information is not available in online tutorial or courses because it needs a deeper engagement to understand the intricacies involved.
I was particular impressed with Raja’s grasp of the subject matter as well as the passion he has. The details on the mathematical aspects although grueling allowed me to appreciate the depth and potential for the space and also I feel it equips me with the right approach and attitude to learn and grow in this space. Not many trainings provide this level of context. It’s easy to pick up the modelling and techniques by following exercises in the manuals but a lot harder to understand the math concepts behind the techniques and the situations in which to use them and I really appreciated the exposure. It is not an easy bootcamp by any means and I think this is going to be a long journey but for those who are truly serious about this space, this is a great start to set expectations of what’s ahead to become truly good.
Loved the Kaggle competition as a forcing function to implement what we had learnt. If left to ourselves I don’t think we would have pushed ourselves as much.
Phuc was great in exposing us to all the tools and systems out there which is equally crucial for someone who wants to be competent in this space. He also helped created a light mood during the training which balanced out the deeply intense sessions … Overall nice job.
Data science dojo was an amazing experience! I came with a curiosity about data science but not much foundations of machine learning and programming. And I feel like I am walking out with a solid understanding of data science as well as the resources to go further. The bootcamp transformed me from not knowing where to start to being able to build my own predictive models! The bootcamp also covered a wide range of topics including the newest technology like spark and IoT. The instructors, Raja and Phuc, are fantastic with deep knowledge in the field and the patience needed to ensure that everyone understands the difficult concepts. Overall, I am very glad that I chose data science dojo to embark my journey!
Data Science Dojo was a great learning opportunity and a truly fun event. The instructors were open, facilitating dialogue and ensuring learning. It was the best run conference I have ever been to – from the great prep to the after-camp mentoring and office hours, from the learning materials provided down to the snacks at break – everything was top notch. I would highly recommend this course to anyone seeking a very solid foundation in data science. It is intense and fast paced, but worthwhile and enjoyable.
I have always been fascinated with data science; it’s almost like doing magic with data. But, getting myself started with projects is the hardest part. What I learned in the class has served as jump-start tools for me and open up doors to discover many other techniques. Raja’s passion for teaching data science is unquestionable. Raja makes great efforts to follow-up with his students to continue to inspire and to keep us on track. The mentorship is absolutely a valuable resource for the students.
I like that it gave me the tools to go develop skills in specific areas (R, ML modeling in particular) on my own. I now feel like I can go into R, use its help feature, read open-source code and teach myself to fish where I couldn’t before because I didn’t know where to begin.
Data Science Dojo is a great place to learn data science. The instructors are extremely skilled and passionate about teaching. The class generally consists of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences and also from different geographies. They help us understand the basics very clearly and also visualize the key concepts. They focus on solving business problems using analytics. These instructors also have many popular videos on YouTube. I am looking forward to their advanced class in the future!
I did not have any background in computer science or programming, but I had always wanted to start learning data science. Participating in the bootcamp was definitely a great decision, considering its shorter period and lower cost compared to other coding bootcamps. At the same time, the bootcamp ensures that you understand the connection of data science elements, such as statistics and programming. This is the part that you cannot fully learn from online courses, and the true value of this course.
Data Science Dojo was the most comprehensive, concise training I have ever attended. I learned so many useful skills in such a short period of time. The pre-course work was extremely useful and prepared me for the in-class sessions. The course has given me practical skills and so many ways to apply those skills to real-world situations. I feel inspired and excited to be able to apply my new knowledge to my work and compete in more Kaggle competitions. I would definitely recommend Data Science Dojo to anyone who works with data or is interesting in learning more about data science.
THE bootcamp on Data Science which opens up this “future world” to EVERYONE who can appreciate it, unlike many other programs with entry barriers requiring “PhD,etc”.The passionate & tireless instructor (I had Raja as mine) put everything into demystifying complex industry jargon and the hands-on exercises gave an excellent opportunity to experience some of the data science industry tools for people who do not usually work with them (like me). I started the Bootcamp skeptical if 5 days would be sufficient for such a vast subject, but left with enough of an understanding to go back and practice actually trying to solve real business problems, rather than only reading & viewing more material on Data Science. Great job Data Science Dojo!
This training was even better than I expected – I am pleasantly surprised to be leaving with more than just an understanding of the topics, but also the ability to deploy capabilities that will bring immediate business value.
Business Intelligence Program Manager at Microsoft
Sometimes we understimate our capabilities and get scared with all the messing buzzwords around us. This bootcamp is a fast-paced way to learn data science ecosystem from the scratch and step into bigger ambitions.
This was one of the best training classes I’ve ever attended. The pace was brisk and the content very useful. We were doing data analysis from day one! I will be using these newly acquired skills at work as soon as I get back to the office.
I’ve never learned more from an external training, especially in such a short time. The instructors are excellent – clearly experienced and passionate about data and what it can do for attendees. I would highly recommend the experience to anyone who has or is thinking they may have a question about data and what can be done with it.
Even having learned quite a bit of data science prior to attending the bootcamp, the boot camp still built up my knowledge from a much stronger foundation and taught me to use a variety of tools to quickly and directly apply what I learned to various situations.
Engineering Intern (Analytics/Software Development) at Heal
I liked how both Rajal and Phuc were able to clearly explain even the most complicated formulas and were able to relate them with real life examples. I also liked that it’s not too formal, loved the humor!!! I also enjoyed the Kaggle competition. I just wished I was able to focus 100%. But I’ll definitely spend time revisiting everything. I think the bootcamp is really great , very helpful.. and will definitely recommend this to my colleagues!!
Data science dojo was the best bootcamp that I attended in a long time. The best part was how an ocean of knowledge was fit into 5 days with a great balance on concepts, application, R, Azure ML, ML algorithms – under the hood, data engineering and attempting kaggle competitions. This bootcamp helped me add a new dimension to solve key problems in a smart way.
Director, Product development & Planning at Change Healthcare
This has been one of the best training sessions that I have attended. Both Raja and Phuc share great passion towards teaching and cover a variety of topics from Novice to exposure to expert level of data science in the bootcamp. The course is very well structured with emphasis on fundamentals in data science and machine learning along with practical implementation using the contemporary technology. I would love to attend an next advanced version of this course, if they plan one. Truly enjoyed the week at bootcamp!!
I absolutely loved this bootcamp. It was brutal, intense and rich of content…I think I have never learned so many things so fast. I feel like I’ve learned more in the 5 days of our bootcamp, than in the past couple of years!
Kudos to the instructors, for being able to transmit such complex notions, in the short amount of time at hand, while keeping the class fully interactive.
Program Manager - Big Data - HdInsight Service, Hadoop at Microsoft
A great week of training, and well worth the investment of time and resources. However, this is not for someone who merely wants to sit back and wait for learning to happen – this is hands on and intensive. If you come, and you should, show up ready to learn and engage with the materials, your instructors, and your peers.
Exec. Dir. of Institutional Analytics at Regent University
To anyone coming into the world of ‘Data Science’ this is the course you must attend. This course sets you up to fully understand the main fundamentals and theoretical aspects of all the techniques and tools used to to create an end to end data model pipeline. The tools used on this course has given me the confidence to apply the techniques and skills to help my organisation become more proactive and maximize the power of data science.
The Data Science Dojo team, via their passion for training, tremendous depth of domain knowledge and supportive attitudes delivered a great learning environment. By support, I mean they induced thought, back and forth discussion and tested assumptions along the way.
The Data Science Dojo team did an excellent job providing “detail” and how each of the components of Data Science play in the grand scheme; data mining, data shaping, math/statistics, transformation and visualization.
Exciting times ahead for those with a strong interest in exploring the growing field of Data Science; blend of business / cross-functional acumen, math/statistics, technologies and process knowledge being required. The Data Science Dojo team offers a great program to help support those whom aspire to pursue this chosen path.
Scott R. King, MBA

Without a doubt, this was a very incredible learning experience. Data Science Dojo definitely lives up to its mission of unleashing the data scientist in you. The instructors not only inspire you to believe that becoming a Data Scientist is within your reach, but they also give you the tools and techniques to do so. At the beginning, when I started the program, l was a little bit intimidated as I was told that this boot camp is intellectually challenging and intensive, and of course it was all of that. Each day, you have to learn so much, so quickly that you have the impression that your brain is about to explode. Thankfully, Raja & Phuc were amazing and know how to present the hard topic in a very simple way, and more importantly they were always eager to assist whenever facing difficulties. At the end of this program, I can definitely say that I acquire the fundamental knowledge needed to excel at tackling real data problem. And the best part of all? I’m just getting started in this exciting journey of Predictive Analytics.
Although I had already been using R to analyze my data, the clear explanations and the practice provided during the workshop helped me solidify my understanding of techniques I hadn’t been using effectively. The workshop is “hands-on” in the best way possible. Raja is clearly dedicated to teaching and has thought through how best to present concepts in statistics and machine learning so that they can immediately become useful tools for data analysis. During the two days of the workshop, he guided us through the process of exploring a dataset, allowing us to learn by making our own discoveries, and then adding insights that extended our learning even further. Raja does not minimize the complexities of exploratory data analysis, but by demonstrating how to look at and think about data, he empowered us to go out and tackle new data analysis problems on our own. I am looking forward to participating in a Kaggle competition with a fellow workshop attendee and a mentor and building on the skills I learned in this workshop. I am already seeing benefits from attending the workshop. I am more confident that I will be able to extract meaning from my research data, and I am eager to get started on this previously daunting task.
PhD student in Pathobiology at the University of Washington & Research Assistant at Seattle Children’s Research Institute
It was great covering so much material, and getting the opportunity to kick start Kaggle and Github. It was a really good motivator to attempt to increase our Kaggle score, and I feel like I have the ability to participate in future competitions as well as to build models of my data.
I thoroughly enjoyed DS Dojo’s 5 day intensive bootcamp. Both Raja and Phuc are awesome instructors and made sure we left with a great understanding of data science and how to approach machine learning.
Having worked and learning some of the machine learning algorithms in Grad School. I never appreciated how easily these can be explained and with immediate hands on usage helps to understand even better. Best thing which I liked about was Kaggle competition.
The bootcamp was extremely interesting, hands on and absolutely relevant for my daily work. I am sure I will be able to apply many of the techniques learned during the bootcamp in and outside my job. In that sense having done the bootcamp was extremely worthwhile both professionally and personally!
It was so refreshing to be back in a classroom sort of environment (but its on luxury side). Raja is so passionate about teaching that you feel motivated to learn. its extensive 10 hrs. of boot camp everyday but its worth every second.
Best Instructors and Best reading material and best food of course :-).
So far its the best data science course I have come across. I am so happy about my decision of attending it. would definitely recommend people.
I wish there are more similar boot camps which we can attend in future.
Overall quality of the boot-camp is very good. The ambiance of boot camp, motivation to teach, interest to learn were all positive. Highly qualified teachers with strong intention to make the students understand is also a big plus.I would say that it is a 5 day retreat with Great food for the tummy and brain.
Data Science Dojo bootcamp was an amazing experience. They material and lessons are very well organized and easy to follow. The teachers took ample time to ensure every attendee received the attention they needed to understand the concepts that are taught. They fostered a highly collaborative environment where every attendee was involved and contributed to the group discussions. I would definitely recommend Data Science Dojo to anyone who has an interest data and predictive analysis. Everything I learned I can now apply immediately to my projects at work.
Information Technology Consultant at Prolifiq Software
As an layman of data science, I was exposed to different software, concepts, analysis processes, and understanding. Different people can get different insight from this bootcamp. You can get an opportunity to communicate and network with people from different backgrounds. The instructors were passionate, enthusiastic, friendly, responsible, and knowledgeable. The bootcamp does not end after its deadline. It is fantastic that you can ask for their help and support anytime after the bootcamp. Who will deny the lifecycle training service Overall, I will definitely recommend this bootcamp to anyone who is interested in data science!
Assistant Professor at Georgia Southern University
I highly recommended this boot camp to any of those who is new to Data Science or to anyone who have been doing this all along. The discussions from participants help me understand further of the real business problem and the application of the data science. Raja is awesome!
Senior Business Intelligence Analyst at Concur Technologies
It was a great bootcamp, covering a lot of pragmatical and real world problems in a short time. Really interesting if you want to enhance your skills to lead your current job in a new way, and so even if you’re not from a CS or maths background!
I have had multiple members of my QA team attend this training. This has really helped the QA discipline at our company and changed the perspectives on how to look at data in a positive manner. We are more focused in instrumentation and data analysis rather than relying heavily only on synthetic lab tests to determine the Quality of our products.
Senior Quality Engineering Manager at Bluetooth SIG
Data Science Dojo bootcamp was an excellent learning experience. The course effectively combined data science and engineering content with hands-on experiments. I’ve previously taken a tool-based analytics course but never developed a grasp of the underlying rationale. I’m leaving the bootcamp with a clearer understanding of the field and also the ability to apply the learning to my job next week. The instructors were excellent — energetic, knowledgeable, and supportive — and they made the week enjoyable as well as instructive. I would recommend the Data Science Dojo bootcamp to anyone interested in data mining and predictive analytics.
Jason D. Baker

If you are beginning your journey in Data Science or looking to see how to apply data science principles into your business; Data Science Dojo is a MUST!
Brian and Phuc really open the black box of Machine Learning. They teach you the right amount of math and software techniques for you to apply into your business and commercialize data. Additionally, they show you how to think like a Data Scientist and instantly add value.
In conclusion, attending Data Science Dojo is a no brainer!
Vice President, Data Analytics Manager at HSBC Global Banking and Markets
This bootcamp was a perfect balance between theory and application. Unlike some of the other programs out there, I felt the class really helped students understand the ‘why’ behind machine learning as much as the ‘how’.
Data Science Dojo effectively peels the layers on different algorithms. I really liked the emphasis on the concepts and the hands on learning. I walked away feeling exhilarated with knowledge of newer tools.
Manager, People Data and Analytics at Intuitive Surgical
Lots of valuable insights, met wonderful and interesting people, good discussions and lots of fun. Kudos for all of the participants, the great lectures Raja and David – our guides in this journey and finally all of the people at #DataScienceDojo – Mona always ready to help out and Phuc for his helpful videos.
I love the whole idea of the bootcamp. I have a graduate degree in statistics but the learning experience from the bootcamp gave me a picture behind data science and engineering as it applies to industry. The hands-on real-world application I learned from this bootcamp inspired me to pursue a career in data science. Thanks Raja. You are awesome.
Math Instructor at The National Hispanic University
This was easily one of the best training’s I have attended in my 10 years at Microsoft. A perfect combination of hands on, fundamental theories and adequate attention to detail, backed by an immense knowledge and experience of the trainers.
This course helped me put many different techniques and tools in a big picture of Data Analysis process. Also, Raja provided many practical insights on use of different tools and methods in different scenarios. This makes it highly recommended course for any Data Analytic wannabe.
As a BI developer with couple of years experience in big data and data science, I always felt the need to polish my skills by understanding the core concepts of data science. This bootcamp gave me a lot of confidence in problem solving and scientifically approaching predictive modeling issue. I am looking forward to building some real world machine learning models.
Prior to the course, I had some basic understanding of machine learning. Looking at class participants, I think absolute beginners can get started and start predictive modeling in just two days. Very well planned and very focused.
I loved the course. Using R to do predictive modeling and analyzing data is a great resource to have in a developer’s list of tools.
I think participating in Kaggle was a good addition. By doing that, I was able to go online and look at what others were doing with the titanic data. It also gave me a sense of achievement when I posted my results for the first time, and scored somewhat better than average.
Software Development Engineer at Amazon Web Services
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.
I had taken a few classes related to data science in college and worked on some projects. But, I didn’t know what data science skills were needed in the industry and how they were used. This bootcamp helped me bridge the gap between classroom and actual industry experience.
Masters Student in Industrial Engineering at Arizona State University
This is a great introductory course for data science. It touches a wide range of topics and provides the participants with enough awareness & skills to pursue additional learning on their own. The instructors are knowledgeable, passionate and willing to get in to detailed in depth discussions about any of the topics. The weeklong course is fairly intense and the instructors did a great job keeping the participants engaged.
The bootcamp had examples of situations where predictive analytics was being used, which gave me ideas on how I could apply predictive analytics to my own projects. It also exposed me to a variety of technologies which I had never used before; such as: Hive, HBase, and Hadoop. Most importantly, the bootcamp gave me a solid understanding of big data, predictive analytics, and resources I can use use to further expand my knowledge in the subject matter.
Master of Financial Engineering Candidate at UC Berkeley
The workshop confirmed my decision to become a data scientist. Through effective hands-on learning, I completed the course able to explore a new data set, form a hypothesis about the data, and build models from which meaningful information could be extracted.
Data Science Graduate Student at University of Washington
It was amazing learning so much in such a short amount of time. For 6 days worth of data science, it far exceeded my expectations of what I was about to learn. The teachers were engaging, the material was simplified for how grandiose the topics were, and that helped to have a strong foundation for jumping into the data science field.
One of the most practical and detailed oriented data science sessions I have ever attended. I have taken a full semester course on data mining but I can say this with confidence that I have learned lot more during these 5 days in this boot camp. Thanks Raja and team for coming up with such a great program.
I was looking for a good bootcamp for learning the basics of Data Science and found this course very good. Frankly, Data Science has been an area which always felt a bit intimidating and some of my prior training courses (online) left me with a lack of basic understanding.
Here, at Data Science Dojo, the instructors were quite knowledgeable and took their time to explain the fundamentals. I found the course content / material top notch and really easy to understand. I just can’t believe how far I have come in the last 5 days. I feel that Data Science Dojo has given me a good launching pad to add more value at my job and also learn more about Data Science.
I was impressed with the course material and the instructors. Looking back, it is hard to believe we learned so much in such a short amount of time. The DataScienceDojo instructors covered the materials thoroughly, and made sure the entire class understood concepts before moving to the next. The training covers aspects of data science, data engineering, and real world examples. There is plenty of additional material to continue the learning after the bootcamp. The bootcamp is an excellent value. I would definitely recommend signing up and taking the course.
The Data Science Dojo Bootcamp was fantastic! The five days of instruction were intense but very enjoyable and informative; I feel like I have a really solid understanding of data science and the tools I can employ to work with large data sets. The instructors were great, the venue was great, and it was great getting to know the other participants – really glad I attended and would definitely recommend the bootcamp to anyone interested in data science. Thank you.
If you are a working professional interested in growing your career in data science or big data, I highly recommend Data Science Dojo. Raja will teach you, in the span of two short days, how to be dangerous with data science. He will teach you the basics of exploratory data analysis, R, and model building and testing. It’s immediately clear that Raja loves to teach, and his passion for data science is infectious. Best of all, Raja will teach you about the big pitfalls in data science. During the Kaggle competition, you will work with a group of motivated students who took the class with you to apply your newly-minted skills. 10/10 would sign up again!
Co-Founder and Director of Products at Appuri Inc.
This bootcamp is an extremely efficient way to learn the fundamentals, and more importantly, application of data science in a very short time. Having funded the course and travel expenses entirely myself, I was naturally apprehensive about the cost. However, before the end of the first day, these concerns completely vanished. This bootcamp is guaranteed value for money. There is no way I could have learnt the materials covered in this training by myself, and not for lack of trying. Studying from a book, or online tutorials just does not compare to the interactive, discussion-based learning approach Raja provides. The Data Science Dojo experience quickly transitioned my thinking and language from academic abstraction to business pragmatism and I cannot recommend this bootcamp highly enough.
Junior Data Scientist at Annadale Technologies Ltd
This was an excellent workshop on machine learning. Practical and great to get started with building predictive models. The most important thing that happened was I somewhat overcame my fear of predictive analytics. Now I have the knowledge of what it takes and I believe I will be able to self learn based on my needs.
The Data Science Dojo boot camp was a great way for me to go from knowing little about data science to knowing enough to make me effective at planning strategic data science initiatives in my organization. In addition to getting a good feel for the tools and processes of data science, I also learned a lot of hands-on skills. The course was dense so over the course of the five days the friendly and knowledgeable instructors provided a fantastic amount of information. I had so much fun learning the tools and skills I kept up with my data science education and managed to do two months of an online course in two days just with the knowledge I learned during the bootcamp.
Instructors passion, enthusiasm for the subject, willingness to help. Wide range of topics covered in an accessible manner, good balance between maths and presenting things in a easy way to understand.
Process and Flow Assurance Engineer at Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants
I was looking for datascience courses and tried to learn them on my own using online courses and books. It was not a good experience. Then I found about the DataScienceDojo 5 days immersive bootcamp online. I looked at the course outline, it was perfect and I did not have to be away from my work for long. I must say I made a right choice. I am more confident about working on a datascience project right away.
Data Science Dojo is absolutely the best training class I’ve ever taken! They have truly taught us “how to fish” – they’ve given us the training we need to be able to understand how data science works and how to implement & deploy machine learning systems. I feel very confident that I’ll not only be able to use what I learned in class, but feel that I can easily go beyond what was covered with some degree of confidence!
Systems Engineer & Entrepreneur at DRS Technologies
I came to the bootcamp because I had tried to learn machine learning and data science techniques on my own from books and online classes, but I had trouble finding the time to work through math, and even when I did, I didn’t really understand what I was doing. Now I’ve got a much better understanding of what I’m doing, I’m unstuck, and ready to dive in!
Junior Software Developer at Info-Tech Research Group
Data Science Dojo is an amazing intro to data science. You can do the free stuff online but being able to have in person discussion on topics that may not be familiar or easily understood is worth the time and money. The five day format is a great length to learn enough to start but not to long as to make it difficult for a person to attend due to work and family obligation. The three instructors are friendly and want to help. I would recommend to anyone looking for an introduction to the topic.
It was an awesome experience to accumulate a breath of knowledge and resource materials to start the journey on the world of Data Science and Engineering. It SAVED me a ton of researching time and brought me important insights. Thank you!
All around hands on approach, lectures, interaction, and topics. I enjoyed the approach of developing the theory behind the application of data science and the interactions in the lectures. I’m looking forward to the follow up mentoring and Kaggle activity. All of the instructors were enjoyable and I learned a lot from all of them.
A great bootcamp to start the big data and predictive analytics journey. I got the chance to experience working with the necessary tools (Azure , R , Hadoop…) with a clear understanding of the theory and application! The instructors are great and I can now apply many of the learnings in my work immediately. Thanks to everyone who made this happen.
Six Sigma Specialist - Black Belt at EQUATE Petrochemical Company
I cannot say enough good things about the Data Science Dojo bootcamp. The instructors were knowledgable and engaging, and the material was not only relevant but extremely interesting. I thought they did an amazing job touching on all topics at both a high level and then also going deep into the logic underneath. After this week I truly feel I know what it means to be a Data Scientist and how to use the tools at my disposal to draw actions/insights from data.
I feel so much more confident about approaching data now. Before I was completely unsure where to start and now I feel like I have a handle on so many different data-based topics I knew nothing about only 5 days ago. I started implementing some of the things I learned at Data Science Dojo on my own dataset before the bootcamp even ended!
Newton International Fellow at The University of Edinburgh
Data Science Dojo is exactly what I was looking for in a week long Data Science Boot Camp. The training was intense and in depth, however, the instructor’s methods for teaching the curriculum made it accessible, easy to understand, and fun. Their passion really cultivated a desire in myself to continue to grow and learn even more about this field.
Senior Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Labs
My name is Kevin Hillaker. I recently transitioned to data engineer in the manufacturing industry. To be honest, I was overwhelmed with the breadth and depth of the field.
Attending DataScienceDojo was a smart move. The pre-work and boot camp have allowed me to better understand what it takes to be successful in the field, and some of the pitfalls to watch out for as a new practitioner. I presume the same is true for the post-bootcamp coursework (I’ll know soon enough).
With this new found information, I believe I am now on a trajectory to develop a domain specific methodology. The boot camp provided tools to evaluate data, engineer features, build and evaluate models.
All of the topics covered were presented in a way anyone can learn. Further, questions were actively encouraged. Participants were continuously challenged to think outside the box and apply their past experiences to the data challenges presented. Overall, this was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I would advise anyone interested to reach out DataScienceDojo to begin their journey.
As a leader of a BI organization, I came to the Bootcamp to learn as much as I could about predictive analytics. The week was intense, but it far exceeded my expectations. I learned the processes; I learned the theory; and I gained lots of hands on practice. This course gave me the knowledge and the the tool experience to bring predictive analytics back to my company.
I highly recommend Data Science Dojo for your entry into the world of machine learning and predictive analytics. Either you are an experienced working professional or entry level person, you will certainly enhance your knowledge and profile after the 5 day intense boot camp. The instructors are well experienced, engaging, interactive high energy professionals with great teaching skills. Raja and Phuc make the hardest concepts seem so easy! The class room training is accompanied with some great reference materials, source code and access to portal.
Though it was an intense 50 hours in the class room, I never felt bored or disengaged. There is always something new to learn and hear from these folks. Highly recommended and the place to go to enhance your skills in Data Science.
Senior Finance Manager (Business Controller) at Sysmex America, Inc.
I had been trying to get into data science for many months, watching videos like those posted by the Harvard Data Science cs109 class but at the end of the day I wasn’t really learning efficiently or learning all that much at all because it wasn’t clear how what they were teaching me would relate to my job and I also didn’t have the opportunity to ask questions about topics I wasn’t familiar with. I decided that I needed an instructor led course and the fact that Data Science Dojo is 5 days was the biggest selling point. The days can be long especially if you really get into the Kaggle competition but at the end of the bootcamp, I know how to apply the principles of data science and machine learning to my work domain.
Data Science dojo bootcamp has exceeded all my expectations! Coming from a software development background, yet, I had spent months trying to figure out where to start and how to learn Data Science/ Machine Learning and ended up lost in online courses, Hadoop and big data platforms without a clue. In five days, I feel extremely enabled and ready to apply machine learning with full potential. The Kaggle competition was the best part where learning curve and confidence goes up high. I highly recommend and endorse the bootcamp. I’m also impressed by the strong knowledge of the instructors!
Production Systems Specialist at Tatweer Petroleum
It was a very rewarding one week bootcamp. You would never appreciate it until you get your sleeves rolling and hands dirty with many exercises, labs and even a data science competition. One would feel empowered to engage in real projects after the bootcamp. Thanks DataScienceDojo.
Abdul Baquee Muhammad
Senior Statistician at Islamic Development Bank (IDB)
I spent several months trying to teach myself the fundamentals needed to begin with data science. I took classes on several of the big MOOC websites, but I struggled when trying to apply the concepts to real-world situations. I read about how I needed a strong math and statistics foundation to start in machine learning, and the path seemed daunting. The Data Science Dojo team has created a program that gives you a foundation to begin with data science. They pushed us to ask questions and think like a data scientist, and gave many real world examples to solidify the concepts.
This is a great bootcamp for a wide variety of people. You learn about programming and math behind the data analytics while applying the techniques on real world data. Instructors are very passionate to teach and help us learn the concepts methodically and pave the way for expanding on our machine learning skills later after the bootcamp as well. In addition, we get involved in a Kaggle competition (machine learning) that is fun and very instructive.
Reservoir Engineer at California Resources Corporation
I absolutely loved this class. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in analytics or data in general! I have attended many bootcamps and courses, and this has been the best so far. The instructors are all great and have a knack for explaining things multiple times and in multiple ways if you are having a hard time understanding. They actually care about your success and its rare to find!
This bootcamp got the basics of Data Science covered. We not only learnt how to build Predictive models, but also learnt how to tune them to perform better and how to interpret the results. It’s a great course for any aspiring Data Scientist.
Graduate student - Business Analytics, from University of Texas, Arlington
This bootcamp was a great experience for someone like myself that wanted to learn more about data science and has never written R code or used Azure before. Be prepared for a busy week, but you’ll leave excited to learn more and try using your own data when you return to the office.

The bootcamp is really great to get you started on Data Science. It’s equally good for someone coming from a statistics background or from a Computer Science background. Not only does it rapidly expose you to a lot of machine learning algorithms, but also covers the building blocks and the math behind it. So, you will get a better understanding of the impact of each tuning parameter that you pass to the the algorithm.
The past 5 days have totally changed my perception about statistics and maths and engineering – ok, anything that has to do with numbers. Now, I can confidently say that I am in love with looking at datasets – all i need to do is really to spend time exploring and engineer it to be a meaningful metadata. If only there are more lecturers and instructors like Phuc and Raja – back in those days when I was still working on my degree. Thanks for enlightening my journey and it is definitely just the beginning. Wishing great success to everyone in data science dojo bootcamp. You guys are awesome!
Data Science Dojo provides a conducive environment into learning the basics of data science. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable of the nuances of the practices in data science and are incredibly enthusiastic. I would certainly recommend this bootcamp to anyone who is interested to delve into the fields of Data Science and Machine Learning but do not know where to begin. A side note though, be prepared to work hard!
Extremely good bootcamp whereby you get multiple flavors of data science from theory to the practical applications. An intensive one-week exercise with engaging instructors polishes your skills and enhances your understanding of Data Science.

A very thorough introduction of many aspects of Data Science and Data Engineering in only one week. The course is supported by an easy to use learning portal that is very rich in material. Furthermore, during the course you will download all the material to your own laptop for re-reading and further learning at home after the course. The instructors know the subject very well and present and explain all subjects very well and patiently.
Awesome bootcamp. Before the bootcamp I mostly considered myself a data analyst, but now feel I have the tools and basic knowledge to develop myself as data scientist. Lots of eye openers and a good balance between ‘wow, didn’t know that was possible’ and ‘yes I got this’ (I would say the balance was 85/15 for me). I would definitely recommend the bootcamp – with a warning to open R at least a couple of times before the bootcamp to make sure you get the full experience.
The data science bootcamp is an amazing way to improve your skills in data science and engineering! The content of the training and the trainers themselves are amazing. Now after the bootcamp I am very inspired to go back to my data and implement all the new knowledge I gained! The bootcamp of Data Science Dojo is one I will recommend to all who are interested in becoming skilled in the amazing field of data science!
It was brutal (in a good way) with a lot of concepts to understand from different disciplines. Before the boot-camp, I had a brief understanding of few things which were reinforced and also learned a lot of other things. More importantly I have the confidence to build predictive models now and go on to the Kaggle competition.

I just finished the 5 day bootcamp, and I cannot emphasize enough the value I gained this week. Phuc and Raja cracked open the black box of machine learning and predictive analytics in a way that enabled me to learn quickly, while increasing my passion to learn more.
Overall the bootcamp is a great dynamic between theory and practice in the world of data science. There was enough math, and real world examples to solidify a foundation (and sparked interest in difference statistical and math concepts) for understanding ML and its applications. Highly recommend for industry pros, and newbies alike. Thanks Raja and Phuc!
The focus on data exploration rather than the algorithm itself was awesome. Introduction to Kaggle competition added more value as we can continuously learn rather than get stuck only during these 5 days.
Attending the boot camp was an amazing experience for me. The workshop is very well structured, fantastically taught, has the right amount of breadth and depth, and most importantly it is actionable. A bunch of us from the class formed a team, to participate in Kaggle competitions, and were able to apply immediately the machine learning concepts we learned in the workshop. The practical exercises you do in the course, really help to cement the theory portion. The workshop does not end after five days; you become part of a vibrant community of teachers, mentors, and students who are there to help and support you in your data science journey. Thanks to the workshop, I came away with a genuine passion for data science.
Data Science Dojo Bootcamp was just awesome! The five day training was intense but very informative. They teach you core fundamentals of data science which you won’t find anywhere online. In addition, there are hands-on labs that gives more confidence to handle any dataset. I really liked Raja’s interactive, discussion-based teaching approach that was my most valuable experience. I am really glad that I attended this bootcamp and would definitely recommend to everyone.
Great overview of all things: got a good balance of theory and hands on exercises. Doing exercises right after really puts things into context. Hands on training and code samples that I can take away to apply later (or show my mgmt). Kaggle… illustrated the data science challenges and dilemmas very well– the depth of feature engineering, tradeoffs, when to stop etc. Being in person with all my cohorts was great.
This is a superb program. It’s also very accessible for those without a CS background. I loved the fact that I walked away empowered with the tools and I actually understood it! Highly recommend it, especially for management consultants such as myself.
I can’t believe how quickly I went from knowing next to nothing to actually building a working machine learning model and understood the basic principles of what I built. The class was phenomenal for being able to give me a basic understanding of the principles and also give me hands on experience. I’ve never learned so much packed into so little time – the best technical class in over a decade.
Sessions definitely exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed learning from Brian. I know these insights are going to helpful for me in my next career as a Data Scientist/Team Owner. The resources, reading materials, books, presentations are all high class.
If you were considering a transition to a career in data science, this bootcamp provides good exposure to the field by knowledgeable instructors. It is intense, but it has to be to touch on the material in the allotted time.
I’ve been having starting trouble with trying to learn Data Science for a while. This bootcamp helped me to get started by digesting all the various data science concepts with a good balance of theory and practice. The instructors are really good as well, very passionate about teaching and data science and give you a lot of insights on traps to avoid/best practice which you may not get from online training modules. Overall, I’m very happy I attended this bootcamp. Thanks Data Science Dojo team!

Loved the bootcamp! It got me really excited about my new role in Data Sciences.
The best training I have attended, where the course material as well as quality of instructors were excellent.
Director - Application Development at TIAA-CREF
I wanted to get started in data science but just didn’t know where to start. There is so much material online and you never know what to trust or how big the field really is. The week-long course was a perfect length for my employer and covered a huge range of topics. There’s so much more I need to learn about data science but now I feel empowered to go back and start applying the theory in my workplace to real-world problems. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to get started in data science but doesn’t know where to begin.
Data Science Dojo’s balance of theory with practical application is the best I’ve seen. You’ll gain an appreciation for the mathematics, without feeling overwhelmed by it, then be immediately ready to start using the tools and techniques.
Principle Software Architect at Microsoft
Overall this course is about the best I’ve been on. It covered an immense amount of material in the best way possible: hands on and with intensely. You are given the tools to progress on your own in the field of data science. If you want to be empowered with skills very few other people have, you need to take this course.

DataScience boot camp training helped me understand what Data Science is all about. Gave me good insights into how some data science concepts can be implemented in various fields/areas. I would definitely recommend attending this training to know how important data is and knowing how it helps in solve some complex problems in this Data driven world.
Ashwin Athreya Vankayala
I liked everything about the boot camp. Raja, David, and Phuc were very good at making sure everyone understood the concepts before moving on. Overall I feel that I got exactly what I wanted, a solid foundation to build my knowledge and skills.
Simply terrific. Really enjoyed it.
Data Science is a broad subject and 5 days is just short. Still glad to recommend this course as the course focusses more on getting started to the journey of data science. Liked the focus on ML techniques / optimization which would be quite intimidating to anyone new to data science.
Thanks for a great bootcamp! I feel that I have the knowledge to immediately create a predictive model in production.
The boot camp is perfect if you’d like to get started in Data Science and build skills in really short duration.
I was surprised how clearly the topics were explained. I’ve looked at data science material before but never found it explained so coherently.
Christian de Chenu
Getting hands-on gave me insights which would have been impossible through a online course like coursera, so this makes it worth it.
Very good introduction and comprehensive overview of the field of data analytics.
Raja is very good as an instructor, and manages to get good participation out of the group.
Got to learn the fundamentals very well. And got exposed to new technologies.
I think this is one of the BEST training classes I have ever gone to. The instructors give you your money’s worth by sticking to the schedule, class went the full time-slot each day, the materials were relevant, we got books to take back and read. The instructors know their stuff! The classroom discussions. The websites worked, the tools worked – can’t say enough good things about the class. I will definitely recommend this to other people wanting to take Data training.
I like that there was a lot of hands on coding exercise and explanations of the specific example/code. It made understanding the details of the tasks much easier.
The class is intense, but extremely rewarding. A 5-day endeavor that’s more continuous sprint than marathon. Even so, the most complex mazes have the tastiest cheese.
Five star experience! Fast paced yet thorough. Many of the things were new and my mathematics and statistics skill were rusty but raja did simplify them so everyone could understand. will definitely recommend.
The class is a good start for a person who is not into data science before. Although the course was intense with lot of information to take for 10 hr and 5 days straight… the instructors made it very easy and interesting for me to hang on to my chair all the time. In short, I think the instructors were awesome, confident and very knowledgeable in the subject matter.
Ailaiah S. Katakam
I enjoyed the 5 day bootcamp. I liked the fact that we can immediately apply the predictive modelling and machine learning principles immediately in our day to day work activities.
Anand R Krishnamurthy
The bootcamp provided a comprehensive overview of data science, machine learning, and data engineering. After completing the bootcamp, I’m confident that I can immediately apply these skills to develop effective models to solve real-world problems.
I really enjoyed the bootcamp! This bootcamp will prepare you to approach real problems and give you an overall understanding of data science. It is also very practical, allowing you to go from zero knowledge to someone who can start building reliable models. The bootcamp covers enough background that puts you on the right spot to start approaching more challenging problems, and to go for a more solid understanding of data science as well. I highly recommend this bootcamp to anyone who desires to get up to speed in data science in a short time!
This is a great bootcamp for people who want exposure to data science but can’t take 12 weeks off work or school for an in depth bootcamp. You meet a lot of interesting people and gain a lot of perspective about what’s going on in the field of Data Science.
The slides, exercises, and materials were all well created. Each exercise demonstrated previous lessons well, while introducing new concepts. Good coverage of both theory and practice. Good coverage of mathematical basis for learning algorithms.
What I learned from DataScienceDojo’s 5-Day bootcamp is beyond my expectation. The way they structure some key areas will help us learn, think and apply to real world in the future. We spend lots of time learning new concept and knowledge and then applying them to the popular tools such as Azure Machine Learning studio and R Studio. I really find myself a lot more knowledgeable in those new areas and can’t wait to try applying them to the real big-data at work. Thank you DataScienceDojo.
I recommend Data Science Dojo if you are interested in learning more about data science.
My bootcamp was filled with individuals that skill sets ranged from beginner to advanced and one for one I feel each one gained insight that improved their individual skill set.
Great experience. The focus was on how to take what you learn at the bootcamp and employ it your own work environment. I walked out feeling confident in my ability to create and deploy predictive models.
The bootcamp was fantastic! As intense as you would expect five consecutive 10-hour days of data science to be, but also structured very intelligently and built to be a manageable week-long rabbit hole to dive into. Really appreciated the way the course was designed and implemented!
The emphasis on the importance of high level conceptual understanding [and the] domain knowledge and expertise as well as really getting to know your data is critical to doing good data science, and that one should not necessarily focus on becoming a data scientist, but should rather focus on bringing data science skills to their areas of expertise.
Overall quality of the boot-camp is very good. The ambiance of boot camp, motivation to teach, interest to learn were all positive. Highly qualified teachers with strong intention to make the students understand is also a big plus.I would say that it is a 5 day retreat with Great food for the tummy and brain.
Data Science Dojo is the best possible 1 week course on data science. The curriculum fits an amazing amount of material into 50+ hours and covers a wide breadth of topics. I was able to gain new intuition and insight into a number of problems I have previously encounter. The learning experience is stimulating and interactive, giving the participants the confidence to approach complex problems without fear.
Truly, and end to end enlightening, educational, and professional experience. I had some technical background within the space before coming, but was really lost as to where to go to “get good”. Well, I found the place. This week far surpassed my expectations and I learned more here than I did in semesters of school. Now I have the tools to go out and get better than good (with some practice, of course)!
Thorough introduction to prediction models and ensemble techniques. Obviously in a five-day bootcamp, one doesn’t become an expert. But I feel I’m well equipped to tackle some intermediate-level ML texts and apply to my own work.
Good balance of time spent between theoretical and practical sessions.
Great, comprehensive course in the fundamentals of data science and engineering. Perfect for those who want to be able to apply data science solutions quickly at work.
The bootcamp gives a really really good generic course. Gives you all the intuition you need to dig deeper into data science ~ there are plenty of examples.
This is a great bootcamp for people who want exposure to data science but can’t take 12 weeks off work or school for an in depth bootcamp. You meet a lot of interesting people and gain a lot of perspective about what’s going on in the field of Data Science.
This camp offers a great balance between theory and practical exercises which facilitate the learning and retention process. The pre-bootcamp material is very helpful in preparing oneself for the camp, and the Kaggle competition presents a great platform to use the skills learned throughout the week. The instructors are engaging and easy to approach with any questions, concerns, or comments you may have. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in learning more about data science and data engineering!
Great teachers show you how powerful predictive models work and how to drive them. Then they show you a great process to filter out the bad models, so only the great models make it out into the real world. These guys gave me more tools to go out and make the world smarter.
I have attended multiple training classes and conferences about predictive analytics and machine learning and this was the most complete. I feel like I learned more from this training class than all of the others. The hands on experience with the Kaggle competition really helped to clarify some of the concepts for me. The instructors were very knowledgeable and had the ability to teach the topics with clarity and at a pace that wasn’t too fast or too slow.
A great balance of theory and practice of Data science and data engineering delivered by knowledgeable practitioners in an immersive way!
Great bootcamp! If cars are data, most of us “data practitioners/herders” are pretty good at starting and driving our cars around. Some of us have even gotten quite proficient at pushing the cars to the limits that they can offer. However, many of us are not “mechanics” nor have any ability to aspire to “car designer”. This bootcamp allows us to, in 50 hours, go from being just an expert driver to a “PRETTY GOOD MECHANIC” allowing us to tune and optimize our cars in new and unheard of ways.
With the bootcamp’s background coverage of the details and math behind it, it even gives us a peek at what the” car engineers” (the Ph.D. math and stats guys) were thinking about when designing the machine learning stuff; helping to GREATLY simplify and understand the theory behind how things actually work.
This can be IMMENSELY helpful when using tuning the machine learning models .
The instructors are extremely knowledgeable yet have a gentle teaching style (partial differential equations were almost fun) and the class materials were very well done. The only advise would be to DO THE HOMEWORK BEFORE CLASS and block sometime in the evenings for homework.
Overall, a week well spent!
Chief Data Herder
One of the best training’s I have attended. I was able to really learn a lot of fun and new things in the last 50 hours. I will definitely suggest this bootcamp to anyone who wants to learn data science.
The data science course was an amazing way to learn about data science and data engineering in a hands on atmosphere that exposed me to how big data affects our everyday life and how I can immediately start using available tools to work on interesting side projects, apply what I learned to my own job and be more aware of how data is integrated in so many aspects of our consumer lives. I highly recommend this course to anyone that works with data in any form, be it text files, database tables, streaming data, etc.
Great content, great instructors and post-boot camp support.
Amazing and challenging bootcamp. Excellent instructors helped make more challenging topics clear and concise.
