What our graduates are saying

Celio Oliveira

Reviewed in 2019 | Overall ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This program is fantastic! I didn’t have a coding background and the way they prepared each module made it easier to understand from basic concepts to Advanced SQL, Python, ML and Data Science that I just finished. It is all very exciting. They really do prepare you and offer great support (includes problem sets, individually and in group and quizzes). Teachers are well connected and help you, no matter the prior experience. When you graduate, you have a portfolio of projects, a very good literature and also hands on practise what is important as they showcase your writing capability.

A great place to learn and practice data science. I am taking Machine Learning course currently, and the instructor Vanessa is amazing, and I get a lot of hands-on exercises, and feedback. I like that the course is not only teaching you how to code, but also teach you the fundamental theories of each tool, and how to apply in the real life business problems. I highly recommend all their courses to anyone who wants to become a data scientist.
