    Divergence Academy was really helpful for me to understand the bigger picture of data science. Compared to online courses, listening from the instructor (Viswanath), who has a lot of experience on various data science projects with lots of companies, definitely helps you to understand what kind of problems you might encounter as a data scientist and what tools are available to use. Data science is a field where you need to bring information from various fields together. Divergence Ac...

    DA Immersive Program - Fall 2017

    Learned a lot, not only about Data Science and its ecosystem, but also about myself and my capacity to assimilate. This 12-week course built on what I knew and cultivated new ways to arrive at the right answers by asking the right questions, about the data being analyzed.

    The instructors and peers in the class made the classes enjoyable and challenging at the same time.

    Data Science Immersive

    Over the summer of 2016, I spent months looking for bootcamps related to Data Science in Dallas, TX.  The closest ones were located in Austin, but then I was able to find Divergence Academy. One of the few places in the DFW metropolitan area that offers a full-time Data Science course. 

    I took the Data Science Immersive course from September 2017 to December 2017.  The course was incredible. The curriculum was  well planned.  From Monday until Friday  starting at 9am to 6pm. This...

    My Experience: Data Science Course - Beginner Level

    Earlier this year I learned about the Divergence Academy from Beth Lahaie. At the time I was looking to break into the Data Science field, so I decided to research the school further. The 6-week beginner level data science class proved to be a wonderful foundation into the world of data science. My instructor, Sravan Ankaraju, greatly contributed to my enjoyment of the course. He is personable, and completely devoted to ensuring that his students are successful. His passion for teaching ra...

    Halo Trading LLC...DIvergence Academy, Dallas TX

    As CEO of a financial trading company I found myself  needing the skills of Machine learning to keep our company out in front of the competition.. I went to Divergence Academy and met with Sravan . After explaining what I was wanting to accomplish he designed an entire course program that encompassed the Divergence Academy cirriculum with an emphasis on my goals, along with a schedule that would work around mine. My coding skills were lacking to...

    Divergence Academy Spark Course

    I work as a consultant and have solid programming skills with several languages. I am mostly self-taught and unlikely to take a course at school. However, I wanted to learn Spark quickly to compliment my database and data integration skills. After hearing Sravan speak at the DFW Python Meetup I became aware of Divergence Academy. I thought a data science academy in Dallas, great! I was prepared to travel out west for the training. But after researching I decided to stay local and sign up. ...

    Best way to start learning Data Science

    Most of tools used in Machine Learning today are open source. All the lectures you ever need to know are in YouTube. So, "why pay?" was the thought I had in late 2014. The problem is not the lack of free information, it is the abundance of it beyond my comprehension. Where do you start? Probability? Statistics? Linear Algebra? Neural Networks? Hadoop? Spark? TensorFlow? How are any of these connected to each other. Where do I start? Which concepts form the core foundation, and ...
