      Through the Big Blue Academy I was able to reach a very high level of understanding the theoretical part of data science, but also with the many hours of coding I gained a very good knowledge of the tools that every data scientist needs. With the daily lessons and the weekly projects I learned new techniques and tools such as python, machine learning, data visualization that are necessary to every data science job. The last big project that was done in collaboration with a company, I was able to see what it is like to work in a team and in conditions that I will encounter in every job in the field of data sience. The people of blue have been by our side all this time, but even now that the bootcamp is over and I am looking for a job, they support me and help me in every possible way.

      This bootcamp is a great opportunity for everyone interested to meet the latest trends and tools in the field of data science.
       Specifically, it is designed to provide expertise not only in the theoretical concepts, but also in hard skills that are necessary prerequisites to every data science job description. As a student I found the entire course to be beneficial in building my knowledge over python, visualization tools, machine learning, neural networks etc. Furthermore, every weekly project and the final big project(with a partner company) added valuable experience to my journey. All instructors in Big Blue are acclaimed in their domain, with a prestigious career in EU companies and they provided all the support and guidance we needed. Last but not least, I was happy to have 2 job offers, even before the ending of the bootcamp and at the moment I work as a mid-senior Data Analyst!

      The bootcamp was everything I could ask for. Experienced instructors and everyone is always available to help. But the most important part that made this bootcamp stand out is the everyday and weekly application of everything we had already learned, plus the final project, that we worked for a company's project. Also, the classes about the soft skills were especially helpful.
    • Great journey!!

      The course was very insightful with the basics of Python and Pandas library covered in detail within only 24 hours. Throughout the course, the instructors was clearly explaining all the concepts and possible applications of them and enough time was provided to us to put the theory into practice.
      I recommend this course to anyone interested in data science but also to advisors and analysts who want to take a deeper dive in the data analysis world.

      Big Blue offers a complete package with this bootcamp for anyone who wants to be immersed in the waters of Data Science. With intense, hands-on training and practice under the guidance of experienced instructors, I developed my Python programming skills and learned about a wide range of topics in Data Science, from data mining and cleaning, data visualisations, databases and remote servers to Machine Learning and Deep Learning algorithms.Soft skills and career development are not neglected either, with a dedicated class on the subject, frequent presentations and support for job hunting as alumni. Probably the highlight of the bootcamp is the final project, when in collaboration with a partner company we work on a real-life business case, gaining valuable experience. Joining the bootcamp is definitely a decision I don't regret.

      3 months of learning new concepts not only by participating in the daily lectures but mainly by applying everything you have learned on real data.

      This process challenges each participant to start thinking and acting like a data scientist. 

      By the end of this Data Science Bootcamp everyone has gained fundamental skills and also confidence to work with data independently.

      The data science bootcamp has equipped me with the tools and skills I needed to advance in the field. Not only were the instructors and staff great and supportive, but the atmosphere was so immersive and amazing! The live-online program felt like a real in-person class.
       
      If you're willing to put in all the required work, you'll develop a nice project portfolio to showcase during your job interviews.

      My time at Big Blue academy was a truly unique experience. I was able not only to learn all the tools and methods the companies currently use but also to think as a Data Scientist.
       
      The program is very demanding as you learn about the most relevant and in-demand technologies, then use them to work on a real Data Science project with a company. The Big Blue team and their group of talented instructors provided us all the support and guidance we needed to advance in the field. 
       
      Because of the well-structured career development during the program, I was able to land a few interviews even before finishing the bootcamp and eventually, 2 months after graduation, I started working as a junior Data Scientist.
