When it comes to data science training, there are many options for instructor led and self paced courses. With other courses, however, you aren’t guaranteed to have staff or instructors as passionate or knowledgeable of data science as the Data Science Dojo crew. Raja’s delivery is impressive, to say the least, and it makes the long days seem short. This is the best training I’ve received in my professional career.
It was a great 5 day workshop with getting some hands on experience and understanding the roots of data science. It made me work towards how data can be applied to solve real world problems. So excited to further explore with all material that was shared.
The Data Science Bootcamp was a spectacular experience, and was definitely a great environment for anyone with no explicitly relevant experience all the way through more experienced professionals. I have a background in statistics, and so I had a fundamental understanding of many of the topics covered, but the depth of conversation and specific examples really helped me understand what makes data science so powerful.
Most important, we discussed several examples of PRACTICAL applications, and I have several great ideas of how to apply these learnings at my company. I feel confident that I can put some of these concepts to use right away. And I now have enough intuitive understanding of what’s going on behind the scenes needed to evaluate the value of a model before deployment. Thank you Data Science Dojo!
I really appreciated that we spent a lot of time on applicability: why choose one algorithm over another, how and why to tweak a certain algorithm, and so on. This was drastically different than a lot of my education, and it’s exactly why I signed up for the course.
I have a programming background and have done data wrangling before the course but I’ve learned so much in this course than I could have anywhere else. The instructors made the bootcamp the most enjoyable and informative class I’ve ever taken. They are very patient in answering all my questions, and they inspired me to be a better coder and explore a career in data science.

The instructors were great, they work really well with each other. I thought 10 hour days would go slow, but they actually went fast (and am glad they set the tone on day one that we would be there the entire time). The instructor knowledge was crazy good, and their willingness to answer any and all questions, even while eating lunch, was awesome. I really learned a lot. Great labs on days 1,2, and 5.
Trade Technology Developer/Analyst at Harris Associates
I highly encourage everyone interested in data science to attend this bootcamp, no matter what your domain knowledge and skillsets are. The instructors are enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and fun. They teach you a lot of material but in a highly digestible and entertaining manner. The bootcamp is very well organized and you leave with plenty of material to continue learning data science on your own.
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 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.
This was an excellent class that covered a lot of valuable material on the key concepts of data exploration, feature engineering, and machine learning as well as of the use of the associated tools/technology.The 5 days was a perfect duration for the program.
Very comfortable environment to learn in! Friendly teachers who are non-judgemental and exceptional. Raja is the best teacher I’ve ever had and explains concepts clearly.
The whole learning experience, concepts demos were very detailed understanding each and every members back ground. Liked the way keep whole class busy being very interactive , encouraging right content conversation. The support being always available at individual level if stuck on any exercise. The helpful and exciting information being posted in slack…everything is awesome. Right amount of breaks at right intervals to process the heavy weighted topics for beginners like me. Overall excellent experience
I am currently a geneticist looking to transition into data science. This class specializes in the fundamental concepts of data science which is imperative when joining the field. I highly recommend this workshop, especially those starting in the field.
Raja and team make the treacherous topic of data science approachable and clear. If data science is in your periphery, Data Science Dojo can help bring it into focus. I can’t remember a time when I’ve learned more in a week. Well worth the time.
Systems Engineer - Consultant at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama
It was amazing week, enjoyed every minute of it, I had too many confusions but now things are far clearer, although the topic is huge but the amount covered is quite good with focus on concepts and understanding rather than just playing with tools. Thanks Raja and the team.

I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. It was easy to follow for beginners but still cover loaded content for practitioners in the space. It was balanced in all aspects and instructors were encouraging and provided great guidance. Would definitely recommend to others!!
I learned an incredible amount even in a short period of time. Raja did a great job relating concepts to real world business problems and giving easy to follow analogies which really improved my understanding. I come from the training & development field and this was one of the most rewarding sessions I’ve attended and with such difficult subject matter, that’s a hard thing to accomplish.
Senior Coordinator, Digital Learning at A.T. Kearney
This bootcamp was a very informative introduction to data science. I learned a variety of techniques that I can bring back to my customers to make an immediate impact on the quality and availability of data science products.
The bootcamp is designed for all levels of acquaintance with computer science. Personally, I had experience in logic and mathematics , but I had zero coding experience. The bootcamp really trained me to begin thinking like a data scientist, it really teaches the method of data science, so that students can then go out and learn all the technical details. I thought the teachers were excellent, very helpful, competent. Above all, they made people feel comfortable in being wrong and emphasize questions and interaction. I think they really taught us to think, to use the method of data science, rather than just regurgitating some lessons. The lessons and learning portal were very helpful, the lessons really taught theory and practice, and the learning portal organized it all, also giving us supplementary learning material. The students were also very interesting, from all over, with many different interests and talents. Overall, I cannot recommend this program enough!

I would highly recommend DSD as a place to learn or update your data science skills. The material is covered at the right pace, right depth, with great instructors to support immersion along the way. Loved it!
Coming from different background, it’s exciting to have this data science bootcamp as this is new field of knowledge for me.
The bootcamp is the right start for me to learn data science learning. Perhaps due to great tutorial and explanation from Raja, about the entire subject. Great.
Iskandar Budi Perkasa
Asia Pacific Network/System/Storage Manager at Weatherford
The class is heavily intensive with theories, practicals and useful software that keeps you ahead of the data science demands. However amazingly, the instructors are able to make difficult theories to simple illustrations and example. Of course you need to keep eyes and ears awake. The class was engaging with questions, laughters and comments. I am excited and look forward to use all the things I learn in the week to my work. Definitely a fruitful bootcamp and you will never leave the class “empty handed”.

Excellent program! Excellent materials and curriculum. Great lectures filled with both theory and practice. The course is designed to really provide a great understanding of data science. Really provides an excellent foundation to get started in data science. Thank you!
Bootcamp was definitely worth my time! The DSD team made such potentially overwhelming topics very consumable. I am definitely leaving this training having learned several useful practices that I know will be useful in my field.
I enjoy the bootcamp a lot. Especially, I have gained much better understanding about the supervised machine learning approaches. The 5 days are intensive, interactive and practical! I’m confident to summarize what I learnt from here and share with my colleagues in the company. All good. Thank you!
When I first came to Data Science Dojo I had a total different expectation of what data science is and now I have a better understanding. I feel a lot more capable of applying data science to my business.
This course provided an excellent overview about the space of machine learning, existing platforms and mathematical and statistical basics to understand it all. I can whole heartedly recommend to take the course if you want to learn a lot in a short time.
Great bootcamp and amazing learning experience. Thanks for Raja and his passionate teaching for making me a different me. I can think differently at a data science problem and approach them differently now. Very detailed on the concepts, which I haven’t seen with other Data Science Trainings. Very glad to be part of the Bootcamp.
Like some of my classmates at the bootcamp, I am already a practicing Ph.D. data scientist in the industry… and I nevertheless got incredible value out of this excellent course!
Most of my data science career has been “figuring it out” piece by piece on my own. So the most valuable part of the bootcamp for me was the opportunity to see, organized in a very logical and systematic way, the data science landscape and the current best practices and workflows of expert data scientists in the industry. Finally, Raja’s interactive teaching style is very engaging and made for a great learning environment. 10 hours a day flew by for me, left me wishing for more!

Staff System Engineer - SDE Management Specialist at VMware
The topics covered in the bootcamp are very interesting and applicable. I didn’t have any experience in machine learning beforehand, and the bootcamp helped me build a solid foundation of skills and understanding. It is perfect for professionals who have interest in machine learning but can’t take an extended amount of time off to take a 3-month course.
This class is rich with content and very immersive. You will walk away learning a lot and keep a lot of studying and reference material that will be very helpful. Don’t be afraid to ask the instructors questions. They are very respectful and helpful.
This should be one of the best bootcamps for data science that runs for a week. I am saying it because we got fundamental grounding in the data science field , a sense of direction and the knowledge of where to apply what we learnt. Thank You
I took the Data Science Dojo bootcamp because of the limited in-class time and access to experts for mentoring post-bootcamp. I am confident I made the perfect choice. The format of in-classroom critical thinking / hands-on exercises backed up with out-of-classroom learning and hands-on assignments was a great model for efficiency and maximum value of time spent in class. The lessons and learning materials are top quality and the instructors are exceptional.
Senior Product Manager at Allrecipes / Meredith Digital
It was a great experience coming here, and learning about the whole data science landscape and how it can be applied in our job. I got a good sense about what business metrics to think about while building a model, what evaluation techniques can be used to improve the model etc. I had a great time interacting with my fellow attendees as well and learning about them.
The Data Science Bootcamp was definitely a great environment for anyone with no prior Data Science experience.
We discussed several examples of applications using Azure ML and R Studio, and I now have enough understanding of what’s going on behind the scenes needed as whats needed to evaluate the value of a model before deployment. Thank you Data Science Dojo!
Sr. Mgr, Software Engineering CODE Messaging TECH at Capital One
Truly immersive experience. The 5 days transform you into a data scientist. Great curriculum as in selection of topics, progression in topics, mix of practice vs lecture, mix of complexity vs practical use and finally the kaggle competition. Raja was a great trainer and very affable. I enjoyed learning the math behind decision trees, random forest and linear regression. I am now confident to make the switch to Data Science!
Sr. Principal Consultant at NTT DATA Americas - Mercury Marine
The course was well structured to gradually introduce key concepts. Raja spent significant time and great effort to ensure everyone understood the key concepts. With this solid foundation I feel that I can now expend my knowledge further on my own.
The course is well balanced between theory and practical hands on work. The practical work has enabled me to immediately start testing implementation at work right after the bootcamp. Amazing transformation that someone can start attempting to solve real problems in just a week!
Raja’s knowledge and his ability to explain complex concepts in a easy to understand way is phenomenal. Raja’s passion to teach everyone data science is the simplest way is commendable. He is “democratizing” data science for everyone. There is clarify of focus on solving the business problems and not getting carried away with the technology.
I have never learnt so much in a week! The experience has changed my paradigm on Machine Learning. From something perceived as only for “rocket scientist”, I now have the confidence and knowledge to start exploring on how I can use machine learning to solve business problems at my startup. The course has inspired me to further grow my knowledge in Data Science.
This bootcamp bridges the gap between the theoretical to the practical. Within one week I not only gained the skills I needed for Data Science but the confidence as well. I cannot wait to use what I learned to make a difference in the field of healthcare and save lives.
Business Intelligence Analyst at Arundel Medical Center
I was extremely pleased with the quality of the Data Science and Data Engineering Bootcamp. It was remarkable the amount of relevant material covered in a short amount of time. You can leave the bootcamp and immediately put that knowledge to use. The team at Data Science Dojo gives you their best, and it is apparent that they want every student to succeed. There is no question that I will recommend Data Science Dojo to others.
I enjoyed the opportunity to meet like-minded people and the chance for some supervised learning. The atmosphere provided to us was very welcoming and not at all intimidating. Everyone was very helpful and understanding!
The treatment of necessary topics in a short period of time was very good. There was enough information to provide some foundation and allow continued growth outside of the bootcamp.
As a dev and math person, I enjoyed the regression and many of the principles discussed in the first half of the bootcamp.
I liked learning about the new tools and techniques that we do not currently use at work, and will enable me to evangelize for their implementation. It was nice to be able to interact with others that share an interest in this space and validate that our pursuit of this kind of work is valuable.
It is a joy to learn from Raja, an instructor who is so incredibly passionate about the topics covered. He is inspiring and his examples are delightful. DSD’s material on YouTube was super helpful to keep up in class. The topics were covered in breath and with the right amount of depth. The constant support from the instructors through pre-created material to ensure individuals are able to complete the Kaggle competition as well as the follow-along in class was incredibly helpful.
The constant food to keep the brain working was wonderful! I look forward to my Data Science Journey!
Estimating & Pricing Specialist at The Boeing Company
Raja was very knowledgeable with the tools and the math. I learned a lot about the current state of machine learning, what it can do, and what it can’t do. It seems like a valuable skill to add to my software developer’s toolbox.
Everyone from Data Science Dojo was friendly, positive and went out of their way to be helpful. I was impressed with the enthusiasm and energy Raja consistently demonstrated from before 8 am until after 6pm every day of the week. It was a great week.

Creative Director/Senior Designer at Andrew G. Herbert | Freelance Design Studio
The Data Science bootcamp was an excellent experience. My instructor was superb, the content was thorough but presented in an accessible way. I’ll be watching for more DSD bootcamp offerings in the future.
Whether you are a seasoned data scientist or just getting exposure to the discipline, I highly recommend participating in a DataScienceDojo bootcamp. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable, passionate and sincere in their delivery of core data science concepts. You will gain a strong appreciation for the art of data science that goes beyond just running “R-packages” by way of the instructor’s commitment to give you the insight on how to build robust generalizable models and an understanding of how the algorithms work. Their enthusiasm for the subject is contagious and the bootcamp is very engaging and stimulating having just the right amount of coverage and depth. The bootcamp and the supplemental material (including post-bootcamp courses) will give you a strong foundation from which to grow and develop.
As a recent college graduate, this bootcamp was perfectly suited for me. I did not attend the camp with a specific goal in mind, business-related or otherwise. Instead, I wanted to learn as much as I could about the field of Data Science. I was interested in learning the underlying principles and how someone like me could become more involved, either as a hobby or a career path.
The Data Science Dojo bootcamp, and especially instructor Raja, were exactly what I needed to break into data science. At the end of such an intensive week I felt grounded in the basics of how to apply data science techniques or methods to a wide variety of problems. I also recognized just how little I knew about the more specific aspects of the field and exactly how they are implemented in different contexts.
You will not become a bonafide “Data Scientist” through this camp, but you will leave with a firm knowledge of what is possible, how to tackle data in its many forms, and where to look to learn more about your own particular interests or to become more specialized.
Research Engineer at The University of Texas at Austin
Raja’s method of questioning/challenging really helped facilitate the learning process for me. Rather than just telling us a bunch of information, he helped us hone in and develop our own conclusions in a natural discovery process. I feel like the concepts will stick longer because of that. I’ve never had a similar experience with any training I’ve gone to.
Raja did a great job explaining complicated topics. I like that I came away understanding how the tuning parameters affect bias vs variance. I also liked the introduction to Azure as it would solve a lot of business problems if I could get my organization to adopt it.
Manager Graduation Rate Projects at The University of Texas at Austin
Engaging! The teachers know what they are doing and how to explain it effectively. I have taken a few analytics courses and the ordering of your modules made the most sense.

Management Consultant at KPMG
I liked that the focus was on understanding the topline intuition of the different approaches and teaching us how to find the packages that will let us take advantage of data science immediately.
I enjoyed Data Science Dojo! Phuc and David were great instructors and able to cover material fairly well so that I am able to apply it immediately. I know after the bootcamp I will be able to enjoy the post-coursework as well and continue learning. The best thing is how fast so much material can be covered but easy to digest.
Dave and Phuc are a great combination of deep data science and experience that work well together in a class setting. They turned what can be a very dry subject matter into a lively discussion and interesting for the students. Highly recommend this class but come prepared and definitely do the pre course work!!
Some of the best training I have had. The short course is a perfect introduction to big data analytics and machine learning. The instructors made the complex topics understandable and fun. They also provided practical examples and code that I can take home and implement immediately.
Political Risk Analyst, Digital Media Specialist at Cape Town
Before this training, I was struggling to find a well-balanced course of technical code and theoretical knowledge of machine learning. This course has enabled me with a machine learning toolkit that I can go back to work and implement right away, while understanding how the algorithms themselves function.
The instructors are passionate and have real world experience. The instructors teach the technical concepts in a thorough and entertaining way, and the structure of the course allows students to move from basic to advanced concepts seamlessly.
I highly recommend Data Science Dojo to anyone who is looking for ways to tangibly increase their machine learning skillset.
For only being a week long, it’s quite intensive and covers a lot of ground, with a good amount of depth too. Great way to get into the world of data science if you have just some experience in related fields and want to make the jump.
I am very satisfied with the overall bootcamp, this is the best framework to learn what’s going on in Data Science industry and practically learn building your own Predictive models using R and Azure ML.
It is truly a “Data science for everyone” course. The week was packed and succinct to the main points of Machine Learning that for everyone. The hands on training, the strategies to ensure robustness, and the mathematics behind the algorithms made the boot camp a complete bottom-up and top-down education.
I really enjoyed the Data Visualization, Feature Engineering and Kaggle Comp. Dave and Phuc are great speakers and have really turned me on to the benefit of R in Data Science

I just attended Data Science Bootcamp in New York in July 2017. I wasn’t sure how they would cover all the topics in the curriculum within 5 days. But to my surprise, they exceeded my expectation. I thoroughly enjoyed the intense, yet fun learning at the bootcamp. I am now well-equipped with data science terminologies and underlying statistical fundamentals. They provided good pre-bootcamp materials before the camp and had well-organized content during 5-day camp! Two instructors were very knowledgeable and generous with their times. Thank you!
It was intense, good instruction, at the right level for beginners.
Asia Pacific Sustainable Energy + Cloud at Microsoft
If you are curious about data science but don’t know where to begin, this class is what you want. While no bootcamp is going to make you a data science expert, this class will give you everything you need to get up and running.
Data Science Dojo Bootcamp is a real doozy! The pre-work was very helpful in calibrating expectations and dusting off a few cobwebs. The daily sessions were a well-balanced mixture of theory, practical applications, hands on exercises and interactive discussion, in a comfortable environment with an inspiring cohort. Great learning experience and now I’m dangerous – thanks!
Data Science Dojo has helped me go in depth with key concepts in data science and machine learning where I have not have been able to on Coursera or Udacity. The instructors really care about the students and don’t hesitate to make sure you understand every concept thoroughly. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a hands-on, interactive experience with data science.
Both instructors, Phuc and Dave, were extremely passionate about the material they were teaching and it showed. They also displayed a great amount of industry knowledge and are obviously very experienced in the tools and techniques they teach. I could definitely trust that the material they chose to present was the material that would be most useful to me in terms of applying data science to techniques in my current career. They were also both very good at explaining extremely complex concepts in laymen’s terms and the teaching style was definitely conducive to a collaborative atmosphere in the classroom and among the students.
Market Intelligence Analyst at Topco Associates LLC
I felt like a learned a ton — pretty much learning from a non-stop firehose, and wish that I had more of a SQL/programming understanding to have gotten more out of the course. Nevertheless, I was able to follow most of the concepts and in particular, I thought that course content was the right mix of depth and complexity (i.e.: math).
Earlier to the bootcamp, I went learn myself on Machine Learning and it didn’t so well in the time constraint. I didn’t see good explanation or fundamentals out there in internet. After attending this bootcamp, I learned a lot and helped me a lot to do things myself. Now I’m at the stage that I can easily understand those hypothesis available on internet and can spin up my own machine learning model or provide insight how things can be played.
This was a week well spent. The instructors were deeply knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter. I now have a much better understanding of the current trends in data science. Not only am I coming away from this experience with some great new tools that I can put to use immediately, I have a great foundation to build on going forward. A big thanks!
Vice President at Analysis Group
I anticipated the bootcamp would be like drinking from a fire hose for a relative data science newbie like myself – and it was! I appreciated both the breadth and depth of the material covered. I feel like I gained the benefit of both a 30,000 foot overview and an introduction to tools and techniques to carry with me into the real world.
Senior RFP Coordinator at Blackbaud
There are four things I liked most about this bootcamp. First, the diversity of attendants. Second, they provided a roadmap for data science study even for starters. Third, they cover a wide range of topics. And lastly, the use of the Kaggle competition.

The bootcamp was wonderful and good for Data professionals at all levels. I can’t believe how much content we were able to cover in 5 days. Also the class labs and homework were excellent and really helped me get a grasp on the key concepts. It was super exciting and satisfying to be able to build, tune, and deploy a machine learning model in a matter of days!
Principal Product Manager, Data at RetailMeNot, Inc.
This has been the best training course I have taken outside a University setting. I was a little skeptical when I saw the great reviews but was pleasantly surprised that the material was very interesting and taught by engaging instructors. This made it very easy to pay attention and stay engaged all 5 days.
The data exploration, feature engineering, and modeling was fantastic! I wish we could have spent the entire week doing just those three things alone! Their explanations were easy to understand and relevant.
I’ve been surprised that it’s been really uniquely tailored to my needs, but also to the needs of my classmates. I see that depending on how technical you really want to get or hands-on you want to be, there’s really something for everyone. Loved the enthusiasm for data science from the instructors!
Great class. Most fun I’ve had had a training session in a long time! Great content. Great instructors. Really enjoyed it and will start applying the tools when I get back to work.

I attended the Washington DC bootcamp from May 8 to 12th. I signed up for this bootcamp because of the reviews and video testimonials from the previous bootcamp attendees and I was not disappointed! David Langer was our instructor. His teaching quality was exceptional. His real life analogies throughout the bootcamp assisted the learning. He has a thorough knowledge on the subjects he teaches and patiently answered all the attendees questions and clarifications – be it during the class or after.
Bootcamp courses are well structured. Prior knowledge on Programming, Mathematics helps, but not mandatory to understand the course subjects. Overall the quality of material and teaching was exceptional.

Dave was a great instructor and kept things very interesting throughout; getting a solid introduction to R and diving into the Kaggle competition was fantastic… I had a fantastic time and am very glad that I spent the money to attend – it’s been well worth it.
The Data Science Dojo bootcamp was an eye-opening experience into world of data science. I started my career in data from a marketing and Excel background and eventually learned SQL and BI tools. I had always wanted to learn R and break into predictive analytics and machine learning, but hadn’t found any resources to get that practical experience. Coming away from the bootcamp, I feel like I have a solid foundation in R and am excited to continue to explore all of the stream processing and machine learning tools that I’ve learned in Azure. There’s definitely a lot of value I think these tools could start to bring to my organization.
Instructors (especially David Langer) managed to bring data science topics to a noticeably diverse audience in a way that, at least for me personally, was greatly enriching. I could frame my previous knowledge of algorithms and tools, and helped me articulate them in practical workflows.

I loved this bootcamp! I never would have imagined I would learn as much as I did in such a short amount of time. I have been considering getting a masters in data science to give myself a more rounded education for my job and future career and this bootcamp was more than enough to get me to where I want to be going forward. Thank you for a fantastic time!
Did not expect this bootcamp to be as helpful as it was, really learned so much during a short period of time. Couldn’t believe I would be able to use and learn R in this short time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, if data science is what you want to understand and apply for personal use or at work.
After this crash-course on the fundamentals of predictive analytics, I can now confidently implement predictive models at work. Because of this bootcamp, I have a solid understanding of machine learning and extremely useful algorithms to get started. I also have a great basis for where to continue learning and benefit my skills in predictive analytics and machine learning. Overall, I would highly recommend anyone with a strong passion for data science to attend.
Data Science Dojo’s week long bootcamp provided me with enough knowledge, understanding, and experience to go back to work and begin implementing forecast models. A week ago, data science was more of a “magical black box” and today I’ll be walking away with the ability to “do the thing”.

The instructors and the material is fantastic and very well explained. These are very hard concepts to explain to beginners, but the instructors did a great job getting down to the level of the students, and take the time to answer all the questions with patience and ease.
Associate Director, Global Operations Performance Management at EDP Renewables North America
Both instructors did a great job in taking us through a densely packed material and showed us the possibility of data science/machine learning (and beyond). You can tell they really care deeply about the subject and want their students to succeed.
Data Science Dojo is by far the best bootcamp for anyone interested in gaining knowledge in machine learning. I entered the bootcamp with absolutely no history of R programming or Azure experience along with little understanding of how machine learning worked.
The instructors did such a great job of explaining the math in simple, iterations so I did not feel overwhelmed or lost. Their programming knowledge made learning R and the libraries associated with machine learning a breeze. It flowed in a manner which didn’t make me feel as if large details were cloudy.
The lesson plan is really well prepared. The example code they provide is really useful and not something you can find online with any other training vendor. The knowledge I gained from this bootcamp will forever change my programming and has provided me a great tool to help my success!
Performance Analysis Associate at EDP Renewables North America
The variety of topics was helpful, and the teachers did a great job of organizing their teaching to give the necessary overview of the topics (history, background, etc) while also eventually going deeper. The practical examples and labs were extremely helpful for learning the material and feeling like we’d be ready.

The balance between how data science dojo presents complexes concepts and tools of data science and the hands on tasks is fundamental to promote immersion and engagement of the students, allowing each student invest the time needed to achieve your goals with the bootcamp.
Very much enjoyed this intensive bootcamp; it was challenging but not intimidating. The participants were engaged, friendly, and curious. The teachers were friendly, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable. It’s definitely a mental marathon, but a great kickoff to the wide world of data science.
The bootcamp really solidified what I learned through Coursera and self study. Nothing compares with talking to the instructors here, and it’s not so long that my employer would balk against me taking the time.
I expend a lot of time gathering information about Data Science bootcamps. As a full-time worker, long lasting bootcamp is not an option. Data Science Dojo is the perfect bootcamp for professional who want to improve their Data Science skills, get an introduction to the Data Science world or like in my case, connecting the dots between all that is happening in the Data Science world.
Amazing, exhilarating and awesome Data Science bootcamp. It was kind of pilgrimage to DS world. Instructors were super helpful in the learning process. It provided me a compass to navigate the world of Data Science 🙂
Sr. Business Analyst, Global Compliance Business Management at TD Bank Financial Group, Canada
Bootcamp shows an end to end topic/discussion from the tools, the Math and the implementation using actual datasets — from theoretical to implementation. Materials are helpful guides for lab/homework completion.
Data Science Dojo is a great week-long crash course on data science and machine learning. There’s enough breadth and depth to give you a 10,000-foot view of the field while also walking away with some more specific theory, feature engineering techniques, and insight into what the Amazon’s and Netflix’s of the world do with their big data.
Systems Engineer, Future Technical Leaders Program at Northrop Grumman
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 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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
