It was a great experience for increasing the expertise on data science. The abstract concepts were explained well and always focused on real applications and business cases. The pace was adjusted as needed to let everyone follow the topics. Week was intense as there are many topics to cover but schedule was well managed to optimize people attention.

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! Read more “Cody Morgan”

I think this bootcamp is best suited for anyone who’s interested in data science either as a career or anyone who either leads a team or manages people who are data scientists. I feel like I’m walking away with a lot of really usable information and a base level of information to build on if I decide that I want to go further in the data science field.

I would recommend Data Science Dojo because it’s five days, and at the end of those five days you walk out of the bootcamp with more knowledge. And with that knowledge in itself, you become a better practitioner. You can apply it with confidence, you can stand in front of a group of executives or a group of people who are practitioners and explain things. That for me is phenomenal.

You can only Google so much, but when you’ve got the access to the data scientists that are here, it just makes things so much easier. It seems like science fiction right now to a lot of people when you mention machine learning they think you’re talking about something that is unattainable and it’s really not the case. It’s just a matter of getting down and learning this stuff and then bringing it forth. Given time, I totally think I’m ready to continue to apply data science to my profession.

My favorite part in this course is really the discussions that are initiated by Raja. Really, these are very, very deep, and insightful discussions. I also got introduced to the subject of big data analysis and big data processing using Hadoop. I’m not claiming that I’m now an expert in these fields, but at least I got the basics, and from now on I can start doing this on my own.

The philosophy of “data science is for everyone” I think is really true, actually. Because my background is not in statistics, it’s not in programming. This course has taught me that I don’t need to be accomplished in those things. This course tells me that there are tools out there that I can use and better utilize for analysis of big data. What this course helps you with the most is give you the confidence to be able to apply what you’ve learned.

The atmosphere it’s been heavily interactive, you know. So it’s not a one-sided kind of lecture mode which I personally hate. The participants are also telling their own experience of whatever concepts we are discussing, whatever business problems we are discussing, so this materials probably you will get in internet if you search over google, but there is no interactive session to make you understand that’s a plus point. For any user of these tools that conceptual clarity becomes very important.

I’ve never taken anything as in-depth as this data science bootcamp. The materials were presented clearly and in a comprehensive manner that allows you to digest the information and it really drilled down on the technical aspects of it. For someone like myself who isn’t a hardcore data scientist or a coder it was initially a little intimidating, but the modules are easy to follow and the preparation work gives you the ability to step in on day one.

My experience being a Data Science Dojo student has been pretty awesome. Everyone’s been amazing. Raja keeps us engaged; it’s a lot of participation. At times you’re kind of out of your comfort zone and it can be a little bit tough. But what differentiates Data Science Dojo is that Raja doesn’t teach the specific tools and the skills, but he gives you the theory.

One of my favorite parts was actually meeting a bunch of people who are so passionate about data analysis, it’s kind of self-indulgent of us to talk about a job all the time, because in our own companies I don’t think your co-workers are regularly so interested in what you do, but here, everybody wants to talk about their job or what potentially they want to do next, or what potentially they want to do next, kind of just seeing that so many different people from different locations and sectors and even job capacities.

So that definitely is a huge difference from just watching YouTube videos.

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!

I was looking for a data science class because I have a specific customer project where I would need all these skills, and then I looked at the outline of the course and there were very interesting topics that matched what I needed and also the Azure Machine Learning part was very good. It is very challenging: first thing is we are doing it 10 hours a day including homework and the material, of course, is very intense and it is challenging, definitely. I did learn something from my peers; we are working on this Kaggle competition and of course you are looking at your neighbors–what are they doing, how to they get better results, or where are they standing– so it’s a good atmosphere. I would recommend this bootcamp because of this very professional nature of it, everything is well prepared and very professional. Raja is doing a very good job in explaining all the topics and also responds very well to questions and such things.

I feel like I was definitely challenged, and at the beginning of the 5 days I was very scared, I’d say, because it was a lot of information and very fast. But at the same time, when I kept getting the information, I felt like it didn’t stick but at the same time it did, and I was able to apply it right away. The pre-bootcamp materials definitely helped me get ready because I had no prior experience with Python, R, anything with machine learning, or anything else. Coming from something like Java and C++ and using R, I feel really good now. Data Science Dojo was so much better, everything was way fluid; they gave everything I needed, you guys helped me out whenever I asked. It was the perfect experience in what I would say for someone who hasn’t ever touched codes or anything, I think this was still an amazing experience.

I came into this course as someone who will be doing more certifications in machine learning development as an update to my college work many years back. I wanted to see data science from outside of the ML perspective, and this course provided a really nice groundwork of data science, and gave me a nice appreciation for where data science and ML design both differ and converge.

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. Read more “Josh Walker”

So far my experience has been great as a Data Science Dojo student. Each day Raja and Dave have been very helpful in explaining all the various different concepts to me and the rest of the students in the class, and they do a great a job of providing real world examples and how they relate to data science. I do feel like I’m going to get to apply what I’ve learned to my current job after the 5 days in bootcamp, and I feel like I could take some of the things I’ve learned and definitely be able to solve any issues that I have. I think this bootcamp is best suited for individuals who want to add machine learning to their current skillset but are also working professionals–coming out for a week is much easier than maybe going to some bootcamp or taking off work for months on end, trying to learn these things yourself.

I’m not from the IT industry, I’m an engineer with a PhD; I’m essentially an Excel and Word user, so I’m from the extreme end of the spectrum as far as a participant to this thing. I think there is a lot of benefit in terms of eliminating bad data and how to treat with missing data also. I thought the professors were excellent, they were very good presenters and were extremely competent. I like the fact that the instructor presented some good examples also; I can see that these guy have a lot of work experience. There is a lot of material and I can’t wait to go back to spend time trying to analyze the amount of data that I have. I see a bit of untapped potential for engineers, people like me, and corporations that do not work in the IT world. People who process lots of data with real products, I think there is a lot of potential.

I’ve been doing a lot of self studying, since I studied Biology so it’s a little outside of my major. And I personally use Data Camp. Doing a lot of self studying, you don’t get the same motivation and you don’t get the same insights that you get at Data Science Dojo where I found that there were key concepts that I knew theoretically, but I couldn’t piece two and two together which really makes a difference. I also found that working with the group of people here and working on problems together really helped. I would recommend this bootcamp because it really taught me the skills I needed and allowed me to have the confidence to move forward and apply the data science technology.

Data Science Dojo was the best boot camp I have attended hands down! The courses, content, and instructors made a very complex space seem digestible – I can’t wait to begin applying what I learned!

I really enjoyed that during the bootcamp, the instructors made every concept feel like it was easy to learn by abstracting some of the details that could make it daunting. The approach to learning, where we first understood the context of how this is applied, then moved to theory, then moved to examples really helped solidify my understanding.

You’d think that it’s a beginner’s course but it really isn’t. I felt extremely challenged most days, I was just sitting there scratching my head certain days, but the good thing about all of our Senseis is that they’re very resourceful. You can ask them anything and they usually can give you an answer for what you were doing wrong, and what you need to do, where you need to concentrate. I would definitely recommend this course because I think it gives you the tools to do a lot of your work extremely fast, compared to what we currently do because we do have to clean up a lot of our data using visual bases or just running filters, and I think that whole process in R or Azure would be so much faster.

I was trained data science three years ago, but because I’m the only data scientist at my position in my company I wanted to find an intensive bootcamp that would sharpen my skills. Most bootcamps are 12 weeks, three months, or a grad degree and I didn’t really need all that. Even though the last experience was a great one it was longer to get my certification through, this one here. Because I’m not going online, because I’m right in front of an instructor – and an instructor who actually has practical real-world experience working with clients – I can get a better answer to what is GINI or why is accuracy more important than specialization or recall, or vice versa, versus sometimes when I’m online the instructor may go over but there is no reinforcement or ability for you to as your questions.

Data Science Dojo, like any other course, they are doing a better job at making us aware that we are not going to make the students who are coming here data scientists. We are going to give them enough tools to build what is necessary to go ahead with their careers and that is exactly what has happened at Data Science Dojo.

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.

It was challenging it’s a lot of material to take in within a week. A wide range of topics were covered and the training doesn’t stop here. This just gives us the tools now to better understand what we need to do next. I think to me the learning and the direction really starts after the bootcamp. Before I joined the bootcamp I didn’t necessarily know all of the different aspects and elements of data science and predictive modeling, now that I have a better sense of it I know where I need to personally focus on based on the subject matter of that I’m dealing with.

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.

If you have a lot of experience in data science or if you have no experience in data science, you can still benefit from the bootcamp because it will give you the time to focus on all the conceptual underlining and learning the new tools and learning everything in a very organized way. It gives you a very good frame of reference for the field.

I was looking for data science 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 Data Science Dojo 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 data science project right away.

It was a fun experience. It was a tiring experience. I love the challenge, you know. I haven’t programmed for 15 or more years as far as a formal programming language. I haven’t done that a long time and I was able to follow along no problem. After this course I truly believe just about anyone can learn some data science techniques in order to help their business.

This boot camp is set up in a way were anybody can come in and learn something. You’re going to get something out of it. They try to educate us and prep us ahead of time so by the time we get in we can just start rolling. I think this experience is more interactive just because of that it it’s a lot better. When I was taking the Coursera course, even though the videos were often very good and the materials were really good there just wasn’t that connection and so it was hard to understand it. This course kind of brought it all together for me from all the different things I’ve picked up along the way it just kind of glued it together and so far it’s been a great experience.

I came to the Data Science Dojo because I wanted to broad my knowledge because i already have some knowledge in machine learning but I wanted to learn what is out there and I can apply maybe on my research. I got more confidence because previously there were so many things that I just heard about but now I know how it looks like to use these techniques, I don’t know if I have enough knowledge to build a whole system from scratch but I at least have guidelines how should I do this

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. With this new found information, I believe I am now on a trajectory to develop a domain specific methodology.

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.

What was great about Data Science Dojo was that the credibility was clear in terms of the background of the staff and the faculty, and the kind of alumni that have come from there. The idea that it took a week’s worth of time was very practical for me. And then finally the very hands-on nature that both complements theory but actually uses tools to apply it was exactly what I was looking for.

I’ve taken a whole bunch of courses actually in data science. I took a bunch online and I took a few in person, but none of them really gave me the confidence that I needed to sort of tackle a huge data project on my own from beginning to end.

This is a great program which sort of introduces you to all the different tools and techniques that are out there and also teaches you some of the best practices because that’s pretty important in a real-life situation. That is something that I don’t think a lot of theoretical classes can offer.

I really liked the instructors the energy that both Phuc and Raja brought to the classroom was really important, especially for a course like data science, which can be kind of dry when other people teach it. So, I felt like their method of instruction was extremely engaging. It was a lot of fun.

There was a lot of laughter in class actually and we had a great time getting to know each other in the classroom. The other students that I met came from very different backgrounds so it was very interesting to get some insight into what kind of problems they’re working on. So, I just found that we learned just as much from the discussion that we’re happening then from the actual slides and the material.

You get to learn from these experts who have done machine learning and data science and their day jobs and they can tell you exactly what it’s like in the real world. So, I think that’s pretty useful if that’s the kind of experience you’re looking for. Read more “Amina Tariq”

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!

My name is Marcos Lacayo. I am from Nicaragua. I’m an entrepreneur and in health care. I started a company called Estación Vital. I looked into, you know, masters and doctorate, and this and that. With the curriculum that I saw at Data Science Dojo pretty much this is exactly what I needed to really see, to really understand the data, and predict real and direct targeted advertising.

It’s not an easy boot camp it’s mind-blowing. I mean anybody who wants to do this, be ready, be mentally ready. You have to be ready to learn what will change the world because I think data science is going to be a tool that every single person will need – either you’re marketing, you’re in health care, you are in the military, or whatever aspect in the world, you will need the tip of the iceberg of data science.

It’s an open space, I mean everybody talks to each other. We interact, we network, we share experiences, what we do, what we like, what we don’t like. So I think it’s a good mix. I think it’s better to start from little and until you – it’s like an iceberg, you know? Starting at the tip and then go down to see what you needed to understand everything. And this is exactly what it was. The Data Science Dojo gives you everything that gives you the tip of the iceberg.” Read more “Marcos Lacayo”

The instructors were very good. The instructors are very useful and they were able to kind of bring things to a very wide audience. So there are some people in the class who had very little data science experience and some who had graduate degrees in statistics. And also they provide a lot of resources so, for the things that I didn’t know in R and I didn’t see the examples for, the books that we were given were very useful.
