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.
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!!
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!
Extremely useful techniques taught during the bootcamp. A variety of tools introduced to get you up and running on your data science mission. Worth all the time and effort and money.
The bootcamp had examples of situations where predictive analytics was being used, which gave me ideas on how I could apply predictive analytics to my own projects. It also exposed me to a variety of technologies which I had never used before; such as: Hive, HBase, and Hadoop. Most importantly, the bootcamp gave me a solid understanding of big data, predictive analytics, and resources I can use use to further expand my knowledge in the subject matter.
If you are looking for a practical 1 week course in Data Science, lead by instructors who are really passionate about the subject, you have found it now!
