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.
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.
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.
