What our students say

Ryan Eaton - University of California, Davis

I came to the bootcamp with a background in scientific data analysis hoping to broaden my understanding of predictive models and machine learning. Data Science Dojo surpassed my expectations through combination of in-person, discussion-oriented classes and practical, hands-on exercises. Modules on feature engineering and cross-validation techniques I found especially useful. From day one it was obvious that emphasis would be on algorithms and rationale underlying the predictive models covered over intricacies of the particular functions/libraries used to generate them. Though I had no trouble figuring out how to code to train and test models after working through the well-documented detailed exercises. All-in-all, Data Science Dojo is a strong choice for the student wanting to understand machine learning fundamentals.
