    Best Experience with EdTech and Data Science

    I have been following online courses about Data Science and Machine Learning for a long time. I discovered the Dataquest proposal in its early days, yet in 2017. As a Professor at the UFRN (Natal)/Brazil, I would like to promote the teaching of Data Science courses locally in our university. Right away, the didactic presented by Dataquest was differential compared to other proposals from ed techs in the same field. Focusing on text-based materials rather than videos came close to what I ...

    Fill all the GAPS

    When I started to learn Data Science more and more I realized how much breadth of knowledge is necessary.
    I don't have a CS degree background and have been doing data analysis and BI development in the last 3 years but that gives me only SQL and a few proprietary BI language, however to be a good performing data scientist technically is required a lot of knowledge across various areas and I soon felt lots of gaps, hence the reason I embarked in the Data Science Python path.

    Mr.

    I am learning at dataquest, data science track. I have just finished basic python programming and some way to intermediate python programming and going forward to finish the data science track. The way dataquest is delivering the lessons are based on the principles of learning by doing, no videos or ppts. The learners are interacting with the content through coding.  So far, from what I have seen, the missions are based on real life problems. For these real-life problems and challeng...

    Exactly what I needed to efficiently level up my skills with a thorough, focused, and practical learning experience

    TL;DR: The Dataquest curriculum is well curated and laser focused for maximum value and efficiency. You progress at your own pace along a clear and logical path, without wasting time on mind-numbing instructional videos or searching around the internet to figure out what to study next. The entire learning experience is integrated in a single platform where you use interesting real-world data to immediately apply and practice each new skill at every single baby step alon...

    Enjoyable and thorough learning experience

    Being a Biomedical Scientist, I am currently looking for a career transition where I can be more involved in data driven projects with ML and other cutting edge technologies. My first concern is that I have no background in coding or any data analysis experience with any programming languages. After looking into several online courses about data science, I felt that Dataquest provided the most comprehensive curriculum. What I liked the most about it is that everything I need to know (from ...

    It's as if I am already working as Data Scientist. And I love it!

    I've been on my way to become a data scientist since for a couple of years now. I've been studying on many sites, took several courses on Coursera and even on Udacity. While overall quality of those online courses are pretty much satisfying, I never had a feeling that what I've learnt is enough, so I kept delaying applying to job interviews as data scientist.

    What I find great about Dataquest is that this platform is extremely versatile, packed very densely with information and hav...

    Good courses (so far), disappointing customer service

    So far I'm mostly happy with the quality of the courses but will not be renewing my subscription due to a disappointing customer service experience. Don't expect ANY flexibility on the company's behalf once they have your money. Once you create a free account, you are served incessant ads, banners and emails to purchase the premium service. Eventually I did, but immediately thereafter, difficult personal circumstances arose that forced me to delay my start by about one month. I wrote, no...

    Great Online Platform at a reasonable price

    I've been using Dataquest for about 2 months and it's been a great experience thus far. My experience with the support team, to the various resources available on Dataquest, the "learn by doing" teaching, and the ability to learn at your own pace. Additionally, seems quite in dept compared to the boot camp I'm currently enrolled in. One knock on Dataquest compared to bootcamps the lack of career support if you are happening to be switching careers. They have supplementary sources on thei...

Data is the new oil. And by learning Data Science from Dataquest will make sure that you will have a thorough foundation to pursue this career. Now let me get this straight, There is no course on the internet that is going to teach you everything about data science. And that is because data science is a really vast field. It would take years to b...

    Solid

    I had an easy semester so started wading into DS in my free time. I had no idea which direction to begin working towards though, so I took a chance on Dataquest. UI is smooth and simple, curriculum is pretty great at setting the ground work for several essential skills. I went in knowing no Python or SQL and not even a year later I'm writing scripts and doing basic database management at work. It's put me near the top of my Deep Learning class as well.

    It's definitely not the only ...

    Excelent practical approach

    I am finishing the Data Analyst course, and I think it is the best course of data science field I have done. I have experience with others Coursera and Udemy courses, but this one has the best approach. The classes are well explaned and there is a lot of pratice. I definilly will start the Data Scientist Path in the next months.
