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!
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.
Thanks to the DataScienceDojo team.
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.
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.
Fantastic boot camp!!!
I was particularly 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!
One of the best event I’ve participated in. Very good teaching skills and the perfect match between theory and exercises.
