Dataquest offers online, 24-week project-based data science courses. Dataquest uses hands-on, interactive coding challenges and projects to help students think and solve problems like a data scientist. Students can choose from a variety of topics to create their own curriculum like data analysis with Python, data analysis with R, SQL, APIs, Algorithms, Machine Learning, Spark, Git, Version Control, and more.
During the Plus course, students write code and work with real-life data sets with collaboration from the Dataquest community. This private learning community receives 1:1 coaching from the Dataquest instruction team and the opportunity to practice and develop peer mentorship skills. Participants will build projects to help reinforce learning and demonstrate skills to employers. And by sharing work and collaborating with others, students become well-rounded data practitioners. Dataquest aims to help students master data science skills, so they can build a data science portfolio and get hired.

Dataquest Data Scientist path is a great way to learn Data Science for me. I find the interactive form really attractive and convenient. Course is divided into modules small enough that you don't have to spend lots of time on learning continuosly. I tried other approaches to DS before - video courses took too much time on theory, other interactive courses curriculum were less complex than Dataquest. I really recomend this course.
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 have great opportunities to practice skills that I feel is important to practice. The whole process is semi-self-paced (you are setting your own pace and try to keep up with it, or do not engage in such stuff at all), and I could skip all topics that I already knew (e.g. the basics of Python).
The most important part of studying here is so called "Guided Projects". In those projects I was able to explore various topics on pretty much real data in Jupiter Notebooks, the whole process of going through those projects is absolutely gorgeously structured. In every project I've done for now I felt like I was doing real data science.
For now I'm not finished yet, but judging by the content that I've completed already and the content ahead I think it would be my last data science course before I'll actually build up enough knowledge to go to a job interview as a real data scientist.
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 resource I use, but it's usually my first step when something new springs up at work or school. In less than a few days you can walk through pretty great intro/moderate/advanced notes and exercises that set you up for figuring things out on your own.
I'll probs renew at least one more year.
A lot of people will say you shouldn't pay for info that's free online, but DataQuest puts lessons and projects in one convenient location. It's worth paying for if you're a busy student or have even a part time job. Even at cost, it's way more affordable than almost all bootcamps.
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.
I'm being thought everything I need to know from the ground up so non-computer science background persons can learn data science. The program is well structured so I don't have to worry about what I need to learn next. The cost for the course is much cheaper than the quality of the course
My experience with Dataquest is phenomenal to say the least. I enrolled at their Premium plan and I'm currently taking their Data Science Path.
I'm just two months into the program and I must say that I'm learning a lot. Trust me when I say this because I have no technical background whatsoever (my training is in the social sciences). I'm not going to convince you that their course offerings are beds of roses. Quite the contrary, the lessons are tough as nails and you need to put in the hours and burn the midnight oil.
I have a confession to make. It takes me hours (sometimes days) to figure out a mission (they call exercises missions). Like I said, I have no technical background that's why it's taking me a long time to figure things out. After a month, I was kind of frustrated and was thinking of giving up.
Then I reached out to Dataquest support to tell them my concern. 24 hours later I got a heartfelt response that encourages me to stay the path and just continue with the course.
Dataquest has a solid team of experts who can help you out plus a Slack community that is more than willing to answer your every question. So, I soldiered on (and still is soldiering on).
Unlike other online courses (yes, I tried other online courses, too!) in which majority of the tutorials are in video format (and that takes more time to do), I happen to like Dataquest's no BS, straight up teaching methodology. They give you contents to read, explain exhaustively the learning material, and give you exercises to solve. What else can you ask for? They teach you, then they let you solve problems!
I got interested in Data Science many years ago even before it was called data science. The challenge I had years ago was that there's no platform like Dataquest that will let me learn techniques according to my pace and available time. I'm at my 40s and working for a digital marketing agency and I couldn't wait to apply what I'm learning to my company.
I've started the course a few weeks ago and I'm really enoying my learning! Information served in structured and easy to understand way exercises gradually getting more difficult and the curriculum is top notch - everything one would need to get into Data Analysis and Science field.
