    Great Online Bootcamp

    I was on the K2 Data Science program part-time track. I had a little experience with machine learning by doing some academic projects. I was working full-time and could not move to a location or quit my job to pursue my interest in Data Science. It has a great comprehensive study material and good assignments and projects which can be done at a flexible pace. My mentor and the TA's were very patient with my schedule. My mentor Pavitraa did a great job at making sure I got the concepts righ...

    Most comprehensive Data Science curriculum I've ever seen

    K2 is a great option for anyone interested in becoming a Data Scientist. They offer that very industry-oriented curriculum bootcamps are famous for and at the same time you can do it without having to drop your current job/university program and move to a big city — I even went through the curriculum while living in Brazil. They successfully leverage the perks of self-paced online education and make spending 1-2 years on a Master’s program feel so outdated.

    Quality-wise, they hav...

    Comprehensive and Flexible Data Science Education

    I completed the K2 bootcamp under a *mostly full time schedule.  I found the material, instructors and mentor support to be top notch and believe this is an excellent option for those students who wish to pursue a data science education on their own schedule.

    Prior to enrolling I evaluated K2 alongside several other on-campus bootcamps.  I would be leaving my job prior to starting the bootcamp to allow for a full time educational experience.  However, my wife and I were also expe...

    K2 Graduate - Financial Engineering Focus

    I'm a recent K2 gaduate having had a basic programming class in Python and an introduction to Data Science class at a reputable Masters in Data Science program prior to starting the curruclum. I invested approximately 20-25 hours per week within the part-time cohort while additionally taking classes within the aforementioned degree program. My focus was primarily Financial Engineering focused with much of the curriculum projects dedicated to this domain.

    Great experience

    I went through the K2 bootcamp full-time, and thought it was great. I came in with a fairly scattered data analysis background, but even this wasn’t necessary. They’ve produced a really excellent curriculum which teaches data science very effectively — lectures and exercises get you familiar with the material, and then project-based work helps you apply it. The mentors and TAs were responsive and helpful, and very proactive in offering help and advice. By the end of the program you’ll be f...

    A Great Bootcamp Experience

    I left my role in financial services to do a data science bootcamp. At the time, I had only conceptual knowledge of computer science topics, little programming experience, and no knowledge of advanced statistical / data analysis / prediction methods. K2 Data Science provided the tools I needed to change my profile from that of "generic financial analyst" to manager-level quantitative professional. The curriculum is all original content developed in-house, the online platform is great, TA's...

    Great Information

    Overall, I thought it was a great webinar. I felt like I learned a lot during the few hours I attended. I thought the instructor did a great job explaining the inner workings of each section and made even the more boring topics interesting with fun real world examples.

    The founder also did a Q&A about their data science program and covered their curriculum in depth and talked about job assistance. I can honestly say this is one of the better experiences I have had with bootca...

    Informative Python Webinar

    I attended a webinar hosted by the teaching assistants of K2. It was about data preprocessing. It was an introductory topic, but the TAs went in-depth about various edge cases. The attendees were able to ask questions throughout the webinar and the TAs would change the code and use ad-hoc examples. Will definitely attend any upcoming webinars they have. I have not seen a comprehensive intro to preprocessing like that on any free online tutorials or blog posts.

    I have not decided ...
