      DSDJ is a full-service, step-by-step guide for a data science career whether you are a beginner or have experience to build on. I started DSDJ with no relevant data science education or experience after a few months of self-study that had me feeling lost and overwhelmed. The course laid out, step-by-step, all the skills to learn and topics to study. From technical skills to personal/career growth, DSDJ has you covered with the core learning modules, live mentorship webinars, live online office hours, technical workshops, data science projects, knowledgeable and responsive mentors, and a helpful community with members at all levels. Thanks to DSDJ, I went from no relevant experience or education to working as a data analyst in less than a year. The best part is that DSDJ is a lifetime membership, so I can continue to use the entire course and have access to mentorship as I continue to build skills and grow towards becoming a data scientist. Best career investment I could have made!

      One of the outstanding features of DSDJ  is that provides participants with a timely overview of the latest innovations in the fast moving field of Data Science. They also offer the opportunity to gain a solid understanding of current applications as well as key principles to help in the analysis of both present challenges and future developments. The core knowledge of the field is covered through a series of online video classes equipped with a complementary blend of theory, analysis, and applications. Accompanying all of the above, there are the weekly office hours with DSDJ mentors; and the slack group, which nearly in real time provide you timely advising whether in statistics, job interviews, technical issues, resume + cover letters , etc. Finally, I think this wonderful platform is designed to meet a broad, multidisciplinary range of participants backgrounds and interest.

      My experience has been very good with DSDJ. Kyle has painstakingly designed a thorough course solely aimed at obtaining a Data Science job. The DSDJ slack group is very helpful. The online video mentoring calls were definitely motivating. I eventually landed an intern role at a major logistics firm which I converted into a full time Data Scientist position.

      DSDJ is a well structured course. They have it all covered, and the course is my go-to guide for my queries. Mentors are always available for help, and the community is awesome. There were very few issues I had. One of it was the lack of Deep Learning expertise in the community. The other was getting irrelevant links and reference as answers to the questions I ask in slack group.

I owe my success of being a data science intern and finally getting a full-time job as a data science developer to the DSDJ and the entire community. I constantly apply Kyle's advice on my day-to-day life, listen to weekly mentoring sessions and technical session in ML when I have the time. I particularly love the 1-1 office hours. Everyone is really welcoming and supportive. Thanks for creating such an elaborate and awesome course! :)

      Joining the course is the best decision and lifetime investment I have ever made.  Without Kyles Advice and mentoring sessions I wouldn't have been where I am now. With this course, you will get access to interact with the community of like-minded people that are continuous learners. If I look back, I have totally changed the way I think about things and opportunities because of the lessons learned from this program. Thanks to kyle and the mentors for coming up with an amazing course structure.

      I completed this course almost one year ago, but am still applying the lessons and ways of thinking I’ve learned from the course every single day. The course layout was extremely engaging, but the best part was the unwavering support and positivity from the community and mentors. They all genuinely care for every member’s professional AND personal development. If you’re willing to put in the work and apply the lessons, it will definitely transform your career and mindset. I still think it was the best money I’ve spent towards my career goals!

      If not for DSDJ, I would have settled for a far less comfortable job and life. But this program makes you realize what you're worth. 

      The field of data science is overwhelming. I had been trying so hard for months to find the "right" guide to landing my first job as a data professional. I had skimmed through courses on Kaggle, YouTube etc. I personally reached out to hundreds of professionals in the data science community on Twitter, on LinkedIn, to see if I can find a mentor. I had applied to at least 1000 jobs and I was disheartened about the lack of return on my countless hours of efforts.

      And then DSDJ happened. 

      I learnt that landing a job is so much more than having the right technical skills. I was able to channel my energy in the right direction and landed a 6 figure offer. The course offers the kind of mentorship and guidance I was unable to find anywhere else, and that I was so desperately seeking. 

      I'll be honest, I was hesitant at first, I was afraid this is just going to be another failed effort. But frankly I felt like I was running out of things to try and signed up anyway, and it turned out to be the best decisions I made.

      i don't want to say this is a course for data Scientists alone to partake. Yes all the technical resources are about data science but I believe the true power of this course is in guiding us on how to reshape our thinking , our limitations we set in achieving our goal. 
      It has tools and techniques on how to make our self image into what we want to become, how to change our mindset from any failing experience into a learning one, how to cope up with your ambitious goals by working little every day, keeping yourself positive and maintaining that same environment around you. 
      If you are trying to do a career shift like me, and need an understanding how to break into this new field then get on. If you have a friend who wants to get into data science tag him/her along. You both would get benefit out of this. 
      I feel this course had opened up a channel of unlocked potential in me, to be resilient and continue pursuing my dream.

This skill one of the moist critical one to develop if you wanna have successful career and climb data science ladder quickly. Early negotiation can positively impact and compound all your career. 
      And one other component is the community created in the courcse through slack channel. You can have the response for every question or help when you re stuck in your code. The best data science commiunity ever, and you will be connected with these amazing humans for life even after getting that dream Job. Everybody can do it!!!

      Being direct as I am: I've made five of the most TOP non-free Data Science courses online and I really can't compare DSDJ with any of them. I would be dishonest with the comparison. The fulfillment of its purpose, the followup, the mentoring program, the community (the community deserves a dedicated post - it's awesome), the support from the tutors and the portfolio drive-through exceeds (a lot) the original objective.

      This course is great at so many levels it's hard to do it justice.  It is not just a great technical training program.  And it is that.  On top of that it is a:

      Mentoring Program

      Resume / LinkedIn review and direction

      Interview prep and practice

      Incredibly responsive support

      Life coaching

      An active community of members supporting each other. 

      I am now teaching Data Analytics at Rice University and just finished my first ever conference speech at DatascienceGo 2019 all thanks to the hard work and the awesome DSDJ family.  I can't wait to finish and see what comes next!

      Starting out in Data Science is difficult as there is a lot of information out there but no road map to navigate it.  DSDJ has a great community where you can interact and exchange ideas with people around the world.  The instructors are friendly and very approachable.  There are multiple numbers of office hours sessions where one can interact with them.  Overall it is worth the money.

      DSDJ had a team of really helpful people who really help one to know everything about data science as well as preparing for interview. I really liked the community feeling and the way people help each other. The videos are really great as well. They have unlimited number of office hours where you can ask all your questions directly to the mentors which is pretty awesome!!! Thanks @Harpreet for helping me so much during my job search process. I would highly recommend this community.
