"Want a solid overview of common Python fundamentals for data analysis? Want to know how to evaluate data, clean it, visualize it, polish it, and feed it into a pipeline for machine learning? Look no further. I didn’t know lists from dictionaries before this, and now I have a lot of essential tools at my disposal to do bioinformatic analysis for my graduate research. Not only that, but all of the course material is available to me for an additional six months after the course ended. Plus, the instructors make sure they are available to help you and set you up for success."
"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."
