      This program has high value for money because it is demanding, it trains you in the mentality of a real job from day one, in which you are required to improvise and produce results often with minimal guidance, as well as the teachers provide valuable information and tips for the Data Science business environment that you cannot find anywhere else. I do not regret it in the slightest and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Data Science skills, whether she/he is a career-starter, a career-shifter, or just has the goal of getting better at the job she/he already has.

      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!!
