      in late 2021 i attended neue fische's second cohort of the 12-week data analytics bootcamp. here are my observations:

      what's nice about it:
      - the head coach was lead of data analytics at freenow. he was always able to give practical examples on what role course contents play in practice.
      - they provide you with jupyter notebooks which are the main resource. these are well made and still accessible after the course.
      - challenging pace
      - what you learn might not be super deep into the matter but you consolidate it again and again, hence you fully understand the core concepts
      - neue fische staff were friendly and comfortable to work with along the entire journey

      what i didn't like:
      - in the middle of the 8 weeks of teaching, the head coach was gone for one week of vacation. during that time, he was substituted by three other coaches; in my eyes the substitutes were not adequate for a course that costs 10k€ pp if you pay for it. one lecture was on p-values and it wasn't explained well. seemingly there is too much dependency on the one head coach.
      - at times the course felt like behavioural therapy. e.g. in the mornings everyone was to block 30 mins to discuss the protocol of the previous day. these felt inefficient and had me crave asynchronous learning.
      - English skills of most neue fische employees were rather average
      - while they speak of 12 weeks of course content, only 8 weeks are taught.
      - sometimes the time management was off. on the one hand side, we spent nearly a day talking about google forms and ca. 3 days speaking about google sheets. on the other hand side, there was one day for machine learning modules in python like DB Scan. on that day, some jupyter notebooks were dumped on us to "revise after the course".
      - they run a career service that informs on CV design etc. while they were always very friendly etc., black on white, they didnt help much. any time i had a question concerning the partners i waited at least 2 days for a reply. i was interested in a position after the end of my bootcamp and my contact person actually stopped replying. i didn't follow up because i had found something, but that behaviour is not what they advertise on their website and during the course.

      would i recommend data analytics at neue fische? if u get a bildungsgutschein, go ahead, given the abovementioned pros. if not, i personally wouldn't pay that money for it given the mentioned cons and the broad amount of alternatives. 

      there are very well made online courses like data camp etc. that allow you to study at your own pace and that require less commitment than that money + not earning money for 3 months. if you do want to commit yourself and if you do want the BootCamp vibe + network, i'd do Le Wagon which is less expensive (6.5k€ vs. 10k€), they have more experience, a better reputation and more taught content (9 weeks vs 8 weeks).

      Interview? Suppose to be one time but end up twice. 1st one was short and not professional. 2nd one - was long but the process more like a real job interview (even from the questions they asked you). 

      Curriculum? Comparing other insitutes - only this one will be taught in German. Altough study material will be in English. Program schedule is also not clear as they are only putting some subjects without further details.

      Overall? Better to apply to other institute. More international, more assistance, more professional.
